Of the thousands of childrens sports injuries that take place each year, many could be prevented through a proper understanding of conditioning and fitness. In one volume, The Sports Medicine Bible for Young Athletes contains everything you need to know about how to prevent or respond to every kind of childrens sports injury. This comprehensive guide addresses:
--Childrens fitness levels
--Nutrition for the young athlete
--Special considerations for young female athletes
--Guidelines for young athletes with chronic medical conditions (e.g., asthma)
Much of the book is devoted to the treatment of various injuries, from foot and heel to head and neck injuries. In addition, you will receive hands-on advice on the specific risks and dangers of each sport, from basketball and baseball to soccer and football. Whether your child is a seasoned athlete or simply enjoys playing sports, this is a must-have reference book.
I urge anyone who has an interest in childrens sports to make room for The Sports Medicine Bible for Young Athletes on their bookshelves.-T. Berry Brazelton, M.D.
