From the Foreword by Karl B. Fields, MD, Professor and Associate Chairman of Family Medicine, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine: "The editors and authors of Handbook of Sports Medicine: A Symptom-Oriented Approach, Second Edition, should be congratulated on assembling practical, timely information on injury, illness and supervision of sport into one valuable text. The timing of this second edition coincides with efforts by the US Public Health Service, the American College of Sports Medicine, The American Heart Association and other organizations to encourage greater physical activity among Americans. With numerous participants in organized sports and a new group of 'emerging athletes,' the primary care physician will find that this text will serve as an excellent resource in guiding care for this expanding group of patients."
Handbook of Sports Medicine: A Symptom-Oriented Approach, Second Edition, is a comprehensive clinical reference that addresses medical problems and injuries in a systematic manner, including initial assessment, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation.
As exercise and sports have become increasingly popular in the past decade, a growing need for family physicians to have access to information about the sports medicine concerns of their patients has developed. This easy-to-use reference provides primary care practitioners and therapists with the tools they need to evaluate and manage injuries and medical problems in both athletes and non-athletes.
The editors emphasize a symptom-oriented approach that mimics how problems are experienced in everyday practice. A differential diagnosis, based on the area of complaint, is given and the reader is guided through physical findings, radiographs, and special tests that confirm a given diagnosis. This is the ideal sports medicine textbook for family physicians.
