Overview

With a growing number of people, young and old, engaged in a variety of physical activities, the field of sports medicine has gained greater importance for medical professionals. Nonsurgical Sports Medicine provides a comprehensive guide for the physician whose practice includes preparing patients to take part in sports as well as diagnosing and treating any resulting injuries.

Nonsurgical Sports Medicine begins with an overview of the principles of the preparticipation medical evaluation and outlines how preexisting medical conditions may be optimally managed in the athlete. Individual chapters cover the evaluation and treatment of head and spine injuries, injuries to the upper and lower extremities, and overuse syndromes. The book also addresses such important issues as infectious diseases, ergogenic agents, the needs of older and young athletes, women in sports, and the effect of environmental conditions on athletes. Along with detailed discussions of the anatomy and physiology of the musculoskeletal system, the authors describe specific maneuvers during the physical examination which are important for evaluation and diagnosis. Nonsurgical Sports Medicine provides a broad range of information that complements a physician's general knowledge and that will be invaluable in assessing patients with sports-related injuries.

Editorial Reviews

Carol M. Ziminski
This text provides a compilation in a single site of a great deal of information which is otherwise scattered in a variety of sources. This book will be valuable not only for the 'team physician' (professional or volunteer but also for rheumatologists,internists,family practitioners,and even pediatricians.
This guide for the sports medicine physician includes preparing patients to take part in sports as well as diagnosing and treating sports-related injuries. Following an overview of the pre- participation medical evaluation and discussion of the management of pre-existing medical conditions, nine chapters cover the evaluation and treatment of injuries to the head, spine, and upper and lower extremities, as well as overuse syndromes. Physicians Barry and Michael F. Dillingham (both of Stanford U.) also address issues such as infectious diseases, ergogenic agents, the needs of older and young athletes, women in sports, and the effect of environmental conditions on athletes.

Full of valuable information for those treating athletes and physically active individuals... Well written and succinct, this book is recommended primarily for physicians and athletic trainers.

Canadian Family Physician
This book reviews virtually all aspects of clinical practice of sports medicine... To include all these areas in a single textbook is a huge challenge, which I believe the authors have successfully met... I recommend this text for physicians who see sports medicine cases in their regular practice as well as physicians who care for teams at home and on the road.
