Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Grisogono teaches sports medicine and has served as a physical therapist for British teams at the Olympics and Commonwealth Games. Her book was originally published in Britain and is aimed at the British athlete. With the exception of vaseline, most of the salves, dressings, and medications she mentions may be unfamiliar to Americans. The book is organized according to body parts; it starts with the foot and ankle, then works its way up to the neck and out to the wrists and hands. Specific types of injuries are listed for each part of the anatomy. Exercises to perform during the rehabilitation process are detailed. Larger collections lacking in books on sports medicine may consider.-Terry Madden, Boise State Univ. Lib., Id.
