Overview

This pocket-sized handbook is didactic and practical, providing guidance to the area of sports science and the treatment of sports injuries. Written for students in sports science and medicine, trainees and specialists in sports medicine and related disciplines such as rehabilitation, orthopaedics and other physicians working with athletes in the field, it complements the Oxford Textbook of Sports Medicine 2/e. The book presents the clinical management of both acute and chronic sports injuries and medical problems alongside the background and basic science of sports medicine. As well as giving systematic guidance about emergency treatment of injuries on and off the field, this book includes sections on sports injuries in specific groups of athletes: women, children, old people and people with disabilities. There are also sections on nutrition, dermatology, rehabilitation, drugs in sport, psychology and sport, and organizational issues.
