Overview

Presents complete coverage of all topics in sports medicine affecting the practice of physicians in the specialties of family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics Provides an authoritative study guide for certification or recertification in sports medicine Contains detailed appendices including resources for supplies, equipment, and training programs During the past decade, the primary care physician has played a pivotal role in the evolution of sports medicine as a discipline that can benefit patients of all ages. The primary care physician is often the first medical professional to see the patient after an injury, making it important for primary care practitioners to stay up-to-date on promising developments in sports medicine. Sports Medicine for the Primary Care Physician, Third Edition provides the latest information on major topics in sports science and clinical medicine that affect primary care physicians. This third edition updates all chapters with current scientific information, incorporates information drawn from evidence-based medicine, and provides new studies including CT and MRI. It also includes a revised and streamlined medical illness section, as well as new chapters on radiology and complementary and alternative medicine. This authoritative edition updates our knowledge of key concepts related to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of sports injuries. As exercise and sports move beyond the realm of leisurely activity to become a necessary component of good heath, this is a timely volume for primary care practitioners, pediatricians, internists, and anyone involved in sports medicine.

Editorial Reviews

James J. Foody
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. 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. The intended audience is family practice residents; however, primary care physicians will find it to be useful. 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. This is a useful resource for the practicing primary care physician and a practical text for trainees. The quality ofthe 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.
