Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is an overview of sports injuries. The main aim is to provide a working knowledge of sports injuries to students and newly qualified physiotherapists, and to act as a memory jogger for the more experienced clinician.

...the book is well illustrated and tabulated. There is a list of references at the end of each chapter for those who wish to investigate further. The book is easy to read and is very logical in its layout.

I found the book easy to use and useful... It would be a useful text for students and newly qualified physiotherapists alike. It would be a useful addition for all medical libraries and a good buy for out patient departments." Pete Evans MCSP, Physiotherapy, vol. 84, no 11, November 1998
book provides a basic introductory text on sports injuries. It is ambitious in its remit, as it attempts to cover in less than 500 pages a wide range of topics both directly and indirectly related to sports medicine.... the subsections on management and rehabilitation following injury are useful and clearly presented."British Journal of Sports Medicine, 33:289, January 1999
author has a user friendly writing style and the layout of the book is ideal for reference...I would recommend it to physiotherapists interested in or actively involved in treating sports people."Physiotherapy in Sport, February 1994
book provides a good basic reference for undergraduates or postgraduates just becoming involved in sports medicine. It is clearly written and well organised with easy to find points of reference."Physiotherapy, April 1996

Eric J. Anish
This is a basic reference covering a diversity of subjects pertaining to exercise science, sports medicine, and physiotherapy. Originally published in 1993, this is the second edition. The book is designed to serve as a practical guide for practitioners involved in the care of injured athletes. Numerous books have been published with a similar objective; however, the development of new texts that convey current and practical information in an innovative and easy-to-read format are always welcome. The author does an admirable job of providing readers with such a text. It is authored by a credible authority on sports physiotherapy. His work is targeted to physicians, physiotherapists, exercise therapists, and students of these disciplines. Even coaches and athletes might find certain chapters useful. The text is divided into two major sections. The first examines general aspects of sports-related injury and management, including the basic science of biomechanics and healing, as well as practical information related to massage, taping, and exercise therapy. The second section contains chapters focusing on specific musculoskeletal injuries. Perhaps the most unique feature of this text is its emphasis on sports physiotherapy and functional rehabilitation. It is also enhanced by the author's generous use of charts, tables, and diagrams, which serve as valuable and readily accessible sources of information. This book provides detailed information on subject matter discussed minimally, or not at all, in many general sports medicine reference texts. The emphasis placed on sports physiotherapy makes it a unique publication compared with other books in this field. The author has updated his firstedition with contributions from many new resources and has added chapters on exercise therapy, sports massage, and taping. In doing so, he has created a text that many practitioners and students will find quite useful.
