Identify, treat, and—most important—prevent common debilitating sports injuries and medical conditions.

Whether you’re a hardcore competitor or a weekend warrior, this book belongs on your shelf. The Athletes Book of Home Remedies is your go-to resource for safe, effective, do-it-yourself treatments whether you have a strain, sprain, or pain that you’ve never felt before.

When you get hurt, you have fears. You have questions. Ice or heat? Should I see a doctor? Will I need surgery? This book answers those questions and allays those fears. Dr. Jordan Metzl, one of the nation’s leading sports medicine physicians, breaks down all the information into easy-to-follow strategies for effective self-treatment—while letting you know in no uncertain terms when you should go see your own doctor, pronto.

The book also answers other common training questions like, "What should I eat to fuel my workouts?" and "What exercises can I do to prevent injury and perform at the next level?" Understand: Metzl isn’t just a doctor. He’s an elite athlete, having completed 9 Ironman triathlons and 29 marathons. He understands the mind of the athlete, how psychologically devastating any injury can be, and what it takes to get you back in your game as quickly and safely as possible.

In The Athletes Book of Home Remedies, you’ll find:

Eye-popping anatomical illustrations of each injury, detailed symptoms, how the injury happens, and how to fix it
