    Editorial Reviews

    "This condensed, yet fairly comprehensive, sports medicine manual provides an overview of common sports injuries seen in athletes of varying ages. The 11 chapters (primarily organized by body part) cover medical and musculoskeletal conditions and include discussions on both operative and nonoperative care. The book is written in an easy-to-read format, with topics often divided into pathogenesis, prevention, clinical findings, complications, treatment, and prognosis....The text covers most of the common injuries seen in sports medicine. Specific chapters devoted to concussion, the young athlete, and the female athlete are especially useful."--Mayo Clinic Proceedings
