This volume on athletic injury is timely because it addresses many types of sports injuries and focuses not only on the treatments of these injuries, but also their prevention. The first paper was written after an extensive interview with the coaches of one of the most recognized football programs in the country. Dr. Kevin Chung's interviews with the Head and Assistant Coaches at the University of Michigan, Jim Harbaugh and Jedd Fisch, provided thoughtful insight on preventing sports injuries in the professional and college athletics.
