Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James A Sliwa, DO (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)
Description: This textbook, which incorporates the contributions of many practitioners in the field of rehabilitation in a sports-specific approach to the treatment of injured athletes, describes mechanisms of injury and appropriate physical diagnosis and focuses on the rehabilitation of these injuries.
Purpose: The purpose is twofold: first, to describe appropriate rehabilitative treatment of common sports-related injuries, and second, to provide information of interest to sports medicine physicians that is covered only superficially in other sports medicine textbooks. These are very worthy objectives that are met by this text.
Audience: The authors are a credible and respected group of physicians in the field. Although they do not specify a target audience, the basic nature of the information in this text would lend itself most appropriately to medical students or residents just beginning training in sports medicine.
Features: Unique to this book is the sports-specific approach and its emphasis on the rehabilitation of sports injuries. It has a clear and helpful table of contents, many valuable illustrations, and an adequate number of references. However, some chapters are overillustrated and some references are dated.
Assessment: This book provides very basic information on the rehabilitative treatment of athletic injuries. Its sports-specific approach, though unique, leads to a fair amount of repetition. This book may be of value to medical students interested in sports medicine or for residents beginning training in the area.

A sports medicine text that emphasizes the rehabilitation of athletic injuries. To maintain reader involvement, chapters are organized around a sport-specific rather than anatomic-specific approach. In addition, chapters are included which are normally excluded or only cursorily mentioned in other texts, including women's issues, wheelchair athletics, tissue injury and healing, exercise in persons with medical illness, knee and ankle bracing, strength and flexibility training, and hydro exercise. Thoroughly illustrated in b&w. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
