Sports medicine is an evolving discipline. The scientific and research base is expanding and changing accepted views on the value of many treatment modalities, the utility of preventive strategies and optimal exercise prescription. Clinicians are looking for evidence, and patients are increasingly aware of the need for a scientific approach. This book brings together the common problems and diagnoses in sports and exercise medicine with a focused summary of the latest strategies, management plans, and evidence based protocols. Arranged by system, the book focuses on the needs of the patient and offers an immediate guide to all aspects of diagnosis and treatment, exercise benefits and epidemiology. This is a must-have text for all medics involved in sports and exercise medicine.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeff D Fields, MD (Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: This handbook is a comprehensive review of sports medicine concepts, diagnoses, and management plans. Its compact size and logical arrangement by body area makes it excellent for quick on-field review. The incorporation of general principles, detailed physiological and anatomical correlation to physical exam, as well as excellent progressive rehabilitation regimens makes this book equally useful as an office reference.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a portable, quick access reference overview of sports medicine including principles and diagnoses along with a focused summary of the latest strategies, management plans, and evidence-base protocols. It is a quite lofty objective to try and condense this breadth of material into a manageable reference without losing the depth required to make the information applicable. The authors have done an excellent job of achieving that goal.
Audience: The handbook is intended as a reference for sports medicine specialists and general practitioners as well as practitioners of physical medicine and rehabilitation, physical therapists, and athletic trainers. It is especially suited to residents or fellows pursuing additional specialization and training in sports medicine. The editor is currently a senior editor of the British Journal of Medicine.
Features: The contents can be divided into three main areas. The first, which focuses on the role of team physicians, deals with on-field situations, emergency procedures, and immediate care as well as ethical duties, role in organizing team and large group events, and regulations involving drug testing, ergogenic aids, and the disabled athlete. A second area covers general principles of sports medicine including chapters on physiology, metabolism, the principles of rehabilitation, and the benefits of exercise. The largest portion of the book, divided into 14 body areas, focuses on diagnoses along with detailed progressive rehabilitation programs. The layout by body area makes for ease of reference. Particularly helpful are annotations when a particular topic is referenced in greater detail in another section of the book. This prevents redundancy and keeps the book readable and of manageable size without omitting valuable information. The well placed notes pages are an asset and can be used for updates or personal notes. They are thoughtfully placed on the right-hand page for ease of use and are frequent enough that the notes and text can be easily correlated. The references are all excellent and current. The illustrations are clear and helpful but more of them may have been beneficial.
Assessment: This is an excellent handbook and reference guide. Its comprehensive review of sports medicine with a focus on quickly accessible, usable information is rare in this field. Just as Harrison's Manual of Medicine, 16th edition, Kasper et al. (McGraw-Hill, 2005) is in every medicine resident's white coat, this handbook should be in every sports medicine fellow's medical kit.
