Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Dana J Lawrence, DC, MMedEd, MA (Palmer College of Chiropractic)
Description: This book is a discussion of sports-related topics as they apply to modern chiropractic practice. Sports chiropractic is the fastest growing specialty area within the profession, and the interest in this area has led to a good deal of literature. This book helps to bring some of that information to the forefront.
Purpose: The stated purpose is to examine injury prevention and conditioning, injury care, and the unique considerations of establishing a sports focus in practice.
Audience: This will be of interest to both practicing chiropractors and chiropractic students.
Features: In the three sections of this book the editors examine exercise and conditioning programs, management and care procedures, and four special considerations (sports chiropractic at a chiropractic college, the female athlete, the child athlete, and establishing a sports chiropractic practice). These presentations are supported by the use of several algorithms.
Assessment: This book has some interesting material, but the information seems to be more academic in presentation than clinical. There are already good texts on sports chiropractic, including a rather comprehensive one by Hyde and Gengenbach, Conservative Management of Sports Injuries (Williams & Wilkins 1997). In that text a sports specific approach is used; it is not used here. I suspect that the former is more appealing to clinical chiropractors looking for quality information on how to treat their athletes. I did enjoy the material presented here, but it has rather limited scope.
