The Textbook of Sports Medicine provides comprehensive coverage of both basic science and clinical aspects of sports injury and physical activity. More than one hundred of the World's leading authorities within exercise physiology, clinical internal medicine, sports medicine and traumatology have contributed with evidence-based state-of-the-art chapters to produce the most complete integration ever of sports medicine science into one book.

Great attention has been given to providing balanced coverage of all aspects of sports medicine, with respect to the relevance and clinical importance of each area. The book isolates solid principles and knowledge, and the documentation to support these, as well as identifying areas where further scientific investigation is needed. The topics dealt with and the degree of detail in the individual chapters, makes the book ideal for both educational programs at University level within exercise science and sports medicine, as well as for post-graduate courses within all aspects of sports medicine.

In addition, the book will be excellent as a reference book in any place where professionals whether doctors, exercise scientists, physiotherapists or coaches are dealing with supervision or treatment of sports-active individuals. Finally, the book is well structured to act as an introduction to research in the field of sports medicine.
