With increasing numbers of people taking part in regular, organised sporting activity, and the technological advances which are constantly pushing back the frontiers of individual sporting achievement, and testing the human body to its limits, the science of sports medicine has flourished in recent years. Sports Medicine: Problems and Practical Management draws on the vast experience of its editors and authors to provide a comprehensive, state-of-the-art guide to the diagnosis and management of the full range of sport injuries which might be encountered. Whilst focusing primarily on the practical aspects of clinical diagnosis and treatment (the guidelines provided throughout represent the standards of care which have been developed for the treatment of athletes in the year 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia), the scientific underpinnings of the specialty, which form an essential part of the knowledge base of the modern sports medicine practitioner, are also covered in detail. Uniquely, the book also places physical exercise in an environmental context. Profusely illustrated throughout, this book will prove invaluable not only to specialists in sports medicine, but also to the general orthopaedic surgeon and physician, as well as the general practitioner or physiotherapist.
