Reviewer: Chris A. Klenck, M.D., Pharm.D.(University of Tennessee at Knoxville)
Description: This detailed book covers a wide range of conditions and issues involved in caring for athletes. The organization is well thought out and incorporates multiple illustrations, tables, and images.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive discussion of issues encountered in sports medicine. It is designed to give general practitioners and sports medicine clinicians guidance in providing care to athletes. The book does an excellent job of achieving that purpose.
Audience: Although written for primary care physicians who are involved in the care of physically active patients, the book provides enough depth to be of interest to sports medicine physicians as well. Athletic trainers and physical therapists will also find sections of the book useful. The authors of each chapter and section have both practical and academic experience in the field of sports medicine.
Features: The book covers all aspects of sports medicine. Detailed discussions of preparticipation screening and physical exam techniques are well written.
