The Child and Adolescent Athlete: The Encyclopedia of Sports Medicine / Edition 1by Oded Bar-Or
Pub. Date: 01/16/1996
The Child and Adolescent Athlete fulfils the need for a responsible approach to the developing athlete. Dr. Bar-Or is a world leader and experienced author in this field and has brought together an international team of experts for this book. The first section of the book covers applied growth and development and the development of strength, power and endurance in the young. Section II considers training, skill acquisition and trainability. Medically orientated sections on injury and non-orthopedic issues emphasize prevention and rehabilitation more than clinical problems, although medical problems like anaemia, eating disorders, amenorrhoea and stress on the heart are all discussed. There is an important section on psychosocial issues, motivation, stress and anxiety. Section VI considers the young athlete in the context of co-existing disease such as asthma or juvenile diabetes. Finally a methodology section reviews techniques used in monitoring and assessment of body composition, growth, aerobic and anaerobic performance and more.
