Overview

In our increasingly active society, children, teenagers, adults, and the elderly are swimming, jogging, weight training, and competing in a wide variety of individual and team sports. Approximately 85-95% of athletic problems are handled by primary care providers, many of whom are serving as team or school doctors. Sports Medicine for the Primary Care Physician, Second Edition, provides the latest information on major topics in sports science and clinical medicine that affect primary care physicians. The first section of the book presents the history of sports medicine, the role of the primary care doctor in sports, and the scientific ingredients of good athletic care (e.g., pre-participation exam, drugs/doping, prevention and protective equipment, nutrition).
The second section considers the nonoperative management of common sports injuries. After an introduction in which epidemiological, rehabilitative, and healing concerns are presented, on-field emergencies and their management are discussed. General and individual sport injuries are detailed in a cohesive, consistent format that includes relevant anatomy; epidemiology; common eponyms; mechanism of injury; history; physical, laboratory, and radiological findings; differential diagnosis; treatment; rehabilitation; consultation guidelines; and prognosis and prevention.
Chapter bibliographies provide general and specific references for additional information. Appendices include pertinent sports curricula for professionals involved in athletic care, equipment lists, ACSM position statements, sports jargon compendium, and a detailed guide to common stretching/rehabilitative exercises. The book contains 259 illustrations and 98 tables.

This book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James J. Foody, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book consists of two sections. Section One: General Sports Medicine is divided into 26 chapters describing the role of the physician in sports, general principles of exercise, and descriptions of athletic profiles (e.g., competitive athletes, weekend athletes, etc.). Section Two: Clinical Sports Medicine Practice is divided into 27 chapters detailing particular syndromes and injuries. Contributors represent many medical disciplines from family medicine to orthopedics and include academic physicians and private clinical practitioners.
Purpose: The editor intends this to be a textbook used in the sports medicine curriculum in family practice training programs. The book achieves the purpose of being a useful textbook, but in addition will be valuable resource for a physician who needs a reference geared to clinical practice questions.
Audience: The intended audience is family practice residents; however, primary care physicians will find it to be useful.
Features: The general layout is pleasing to the eye. Line drawings and photographs are used appropriately to illustrate points from the text. References are variable; some chapters have recent journal references, whereas others have only general citations. Chapters in Section Two are arranged first with a narrative description including anatomy and pathophysiology of the affected part of the system followed by an outline description of pertinent features. This outline format is extraordinarily concise and useful. Unfortunately, the graphics are plain and make quick reading difficult. The index is excellent and a glossary of terms is very helpful.
Assessment: This is a useful resource for the practicing primary care physician and a practical text for trainees. The quality of the chapters is uneven, but taken as a whole it is a very well written text. It is utilitarian rather than scholarly. As such, it should find a place on the desk of many primary care physicians.
