Overview

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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: James L. Moeller, MD (University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine)
Description: This new sports medicine reference discusses growth and maturation, training techniques, injuries, health concerns, psychosocial issues, disease states, and methodology and how they pertain to active children and adults. The book is one in a series of six sports medicine references compiled by the International Olympic Committee's Medical Commission.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide reference material for professionals interested in the effects of exercise and sports on children and adolescents.
Audience: The book is targeted for sports physicians, general practitioners, pediatricians, physical therapists, graduate level students in medicine or exercise sciences, and exercise science researchers. It provides an easily indexed reference in epidemiology, treatment of illness, and application of basic science in the child or adolescent athlete. The tables and figures used throughout the book are clear and appropriate. The focus on children and adolescents sets it apart from most other sports medicine references.
Features: The overall design is clear. The variety of contributors, including physicians, exercise science researchers, and registered dietitians from across the globe, is an attractive feature.
Assessment: This sports medicine reference is an excellent tool for healthcare and exercise science professionals engaged in the care of active individuals of this age group. The design is easy to follow and challenges for future research are cited. The overviews of maturational, general health, training, and psychological issues provide quick references to help guide treatment and research plans. This reference is appropriate for individual, healthcare facility or resident, or education library purchase.

A team of international experts in pediatric sports medicine address issues of importance to both sports medicine doctors and professionals dealing with young athletes. The book's seven sections address growth, maturation, and physical performance; training; injuries; non-orthopedic health concerns; psychosocial issues; disease and the young athlete; and methodology. A few b&w photographs, charts, diagrams. Note: Blackwell Science used to distribute this book but does so no longer. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
