Overview

Created in collaboration with the Medical Commission of the International Olympic Committee this exciting new book is a must-have tool for all those involved in assessing and treating the active individual with injuries sustained in sports and physical activity: from primary care and ER physicians to general physical therapists, athletic trainers, nurse practitioners and physician's assistants.

Written and edited by an international cast of world-leading experts, the book embraces a problem-oriented approach to guide the reader through the assessment and management of injuries in physical activity. Covering the various body regions and distinguishing between common and rarer injuries, the book follows a trajectory from history taking and physical examination to diagnosis and treatment, providing clear and actionable guidance on management of the most common injuries and disorders. Over 500 beautiful full-color illustrations augment the text, showing readers detailed views of the techniques, procedures and other clinically-relevant information being described.  

Over the course of the last decade there have been significant developments in our understanding of sports injuries – what they are, how they should be assessed, and how they should be treated. The IOC Manual of Sports Injuries distills these advances into straightforward, practical guidance that clinicians can count on to optimize their care of the physically-active patient.
