Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jon Divine, MD (Baylor College of Medicine)
Description: This book provides a broad overview of exercise and sports medicine for the general practitioner. It covers a wide variety of common sports medicine topics without going into extensive detail, or rare sports-related conditions. Included are sections written specifically for the lay reader on a variety of sports medicine and exercise related topics. Most sports medicine texts are written for either the sports specialist or the lay public, not both.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide useful information for providers to pass on to their patients regarding sports medicine, exercise, and the importance regular activity.
Audience: Written specifically for the generalist, primary care providers without a background in sports medicine will find this text helpful. Extended providers such as nurse practitioners and physician assistants with an interest in sports medicine will also find it helpful. Providers whose practice is primarily sports medicine will find this text to be too basic and lacking in detail.
Features: The first chapter gives an historical perspective of exercise and sports medicine, beginning with ancient China and early Greek/Olympic culture. This is unique to any sports medicine text and is quite interesting reading. A remedial section on the benefits of regular exercise and basic exercise physiology is included. More traditional medical problems related to sports medicine are emphasized less than sports-related injuries, which provide the bulk of the text. Perhaps due to the mass popularity of soccer, British sports medicine providers have an exceptional insight on injuries to the hip, pelvis, and groin, and the discussion on this topic is well done. For the benefit of American readers less familiar with this area of injury (especially Gilmore's Groin, a "covert" inguinal hernia seen in soccer and hockey players), diagrams of the involved anatomy would have been most helpful. Most of the text lacks detailed explanation of anything beyond the most common sports-related injuries or illnesses. A consistent negative is the lack of visual aids within the text.
Assessment: The author's writing style is exceptional. Compared to similar titles on sports medicine, especially those by the same publisher, this text is above average in quality. The importance of regular exercise is consistently emphasized, a message we clinicians consistently fail to adequately communicate to our patients. The sections written for patient education tools are a unique plus. Readers who can overlook the lack of diagrams, figures, and illustrations will appreciate a well thought out, concise text, written with a "proper" British perspective.
