Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Andrea Fraley, MD (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This is a concise and comprehensive evaluation of spine biomechanics and sport-specific spine disorders commonly seen by physicians, therapists and trainers. It is divided into three sections: general spine fitness and preparation for sports, age-related changes of the spine in the athlete, and sports-specific spine disorders and maintenance.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a thorough understanding of spine movements unique to specific sports, common spine injury patterns, treatment options, both nonsurgical and surgical, and preventive techniques.
Audience: This book is designed for all clinicians working with athletes, specifically those athletes suffering from spine injuries. The editors assembled experts in the fields of physiatry, neurosurgery, orthopedics, anesthesiology, and physical therapy to author the chapter specific to their specialty.
Features: The book begins by covering the importance of spine fitness and conditioning. The next section focuses on those injuries specific to the young and older athlete. In the final section, 10 chapters are dedicated to individual sports most commonly associated with spinal injuries, one of which focuses on sports for athletes with disabilities. There are several excellent color illustrations, figures, diagrams, and bullet points throughout the text to aid in the understanding of many key concepts.
Assessment: This is a much welcomed sports medicine textbook focusing on the biomechanics as well as the disorders of the spine. The contributions from various experts representing several different specialties provide some interesting viewpoints. The editors were able to achieve their goals in a concise and well designed format.
