Overview

Written by a sports scientist, a coach and a physician, Swimming is the broadest work yet written in this field for sports science and sports medicine alike. The text is authored by a team with outstanding credentials in terms of personal experience as competitive swimmers, in research productivity, coaching success, and the medical care of high performance swimmers and swimming teams. Swimming has been written primarily for athletics trainers and team coaches but is also intended as a specialist reference for doctors, allied health professionals and for athletes themselves. Chapters cover the characteristics of swimming including important concepts in propulsion, functional anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, biomechanics and psychology. Also included are the principles and aims of nutrition, injury including risks, mechanisms of injury, prevention, immediate care, treatment, rehabilitation and return to training.
