This thoroughly illustrated handbook is the first complete how-to guide to the use of manual medicine techniques for sports injuries. For each region of the body, the book describes anatomy, physiology, physical examination, and common sports injuries, and details the various manual medicine techniques, with step-by-step instructions for treating specific injuries. More than 400 illustrations demonstrate how to apply these techniques. Separate chapters focus on injuries in fourteen specific sports and in specific athletic populations—the differently abled, children, women, the elderly, and pregnant athletes.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Craig S Nadelson, BS, DO (Indiana University School of Medicine)
Description: This book aims to address two topics that have not often been discussed in combination in the literature in the past — sports medicine and manual medicine.
Purpose: The purpose is to define "manual sports medicine," address techniques and approaches of manual medicine, exam skills, and how to use manual medicine to improve recovery time and return-to-play for athletes. These topics are addressed, in separate sections, concerning sport specifics for 14 different sports, and population specifics for six different populations. As a DO who practices manual therapy and works in sports medicine, I found this book very useful — not to say that an MD, ATC, or PT couldn't benefit from this unique book as well. The author's objectives are well met.
Audience: The author cites both osteopathic and allopathic physicians as the main audience. Obviously those who practice some sports medicine will benefit most. The list of contributing editors and authors is a impressive, with many highly recognizable names.
Features: The book includes a review of the main manual medicine techniques and how and when to apply them. Exam and evaluation are addressed by region and body part, with common conditions highlighted. There is also a helpful section on gait analysis. The book then delves into sport and population specifics. The best thing about this book is that someone has finally made a solid effort to discuss manual and sports medicine hand-in-hand. There are many useful pictures, especially for exam skills and demonstration of manual techniques. A rookie to manual medicine could learn a lot of useful techniques just by reading this book (although plenty of practice would be necessary before applying them with patients). The book does not seem to have any shortcomings, except that I'm sure the specifics on 14 sports could always be expanded to include other, less common sports.
Assessment: Since the book aims to combine two separate topics into one new genre, it would be difficult to compare this book to others. As the preface mentions by name, there are more in-depth books that cover manual medicine by itself. This book is best used to expand the ways in which an athlete can be treated.
