Nonsurgical Sports Medicine: Preparticipation Exam through Rehabilitation

Nonsurgical Sports Medicine is a comprehensive guide for the physician whose practice includes preparing patients to take part in sports as well as diagnosing and treating sports-related injuries. Nonsurgical Sports Medicine begins with an overview of the preparticipation medical evaluation and outlines how preexisting medical conditions may be managed in the athlete. Individual chapters cover the evaluation and treatment of head and spine injuries, injuries to the upper and lower extremities, and overuse syndromes. The book also addresses such important issues as infectious diseases, ergogenic agents, the needs of older and young athletes, women in sports, and the effect of environmental conditions on athletes. Along with detailed discussions of the anatomy and physiology of the musculoskeletal system, the authors describe specific maneuvers during the physical examination which are important for evaluation and diagnosis. Providing a broad range of information that complements a physician's general knowledge, Nonsurgical Sports Medicine will be invaluable in assessing patients with sports-related injuries.
