The current high profile in the UK of sports and exercise medicine has been reflected in recent years by its acceptance as a stand-alone specialty and the development of the faculty of sports and exercise medicine. Written by a truly multinational list of contributors who work within, and represent the cutting edge of the discipline, Sports Injuries is in full colour throughout and contains hundreds of illustrations to aid diagnosis and understanding. It is organised by anatomical region and by sport, and also covers basic sciences such as functional anatomy, tissue injury and repair, and principles of examination and treatment to further enhance understanding. Based on the 2001 title Sports Injuries: Recognition and Management 3rd edition, also edited by Michael Hutson, this textbook will be invaluable to those clinicians who are involved with, or anticipate involvement with, sports people and those exercising for health benefits or for pleasure, many of whom will be in need of expert advice following injury. Professionals whose careers lead them into regular contact with the exercising public, whether it is as therapists, coaches, trainers, administrators or executives, will also wish to find a place on their bookshelves for this comprehensive text on the adverse consequences of exercise.
