Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Griffith, a former Florida State University sports physician and author of the Complete Guide to Prescription and Non-Prescription Drugs and the Complete Guide to Symptoms, Illnesses & Surgery, has compiled a hefty and accessible handbook on injuries and illnesses that result from vigorous physical activity and competitive sports. In encyclopedic form, he packs an array of concise information on causes, symptoms and treatment into a series of charts enhanced by detailed anatomical drawings. A chapter prescribing rehabilitation programs in each of 13 areas of the body, a glossary of medical terms and appendixes on nutrition, hygiene, drugs, etc., nicely round out the guide. (June)

the 1986 version, this is a great book. I found the '86 printing to be full of information. The diagrams are great and the rehabilitatoin exercises have worked for me. I can't wait to see how the '97 version was updated!
