Extract

This comprehensive textbook covers many of the current topics in contemporary sports medicine. The easily readable chapters each begin with a list of key points that highlight the particular topic covered by the chapter. The multiple authors who collaborated and contributed to this book have brought a wealth of experience and an international perspective to their assigned topics. The book provides excellent descriptions of the most common techniques for physical examination and provides outstanding illustrations of important anatomy pertinent to the various disorders that are discussed. A thorough overview of very useful rehabilitation exercises is provided, including exercises for low back pain or disorders of the shoulder. In addition, there are several check sheets for physicians to utilize in evaluating patients who have common sports conditions, such as concussions.
