Summary:This unique book focuses exclusively on upper extremity injuries in the young athlete, including the latest evidence on current diagnostic and treatment strategies. Comprised of the most up-to-date information in the field, much of which is not in the existing literature, it proceeds anatomically from the shoulder down, covering the diagnosis and management of conditions of bones, muscles, ligaments and nerves. Shoulder injuries in the adolescent footballer, thrower and swimmer are discussed in detail, along with the pitcher's elbow and the wrist of the golfer, gymnast and tennis player. In addition to sports-specific injuries, carpal and common hand and nerve injuries, seen across multiple sports, are likewise described, as is the use of ultrasound in injury diagnosis. Injuries of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand are among the most common in young athletes, and pediatric orthopedic and sports medicine specialists are seeing these injuries of the upper extremity with increasing frequency. Upper Extremity Injuries in Young Athletes will be a valuable resource in evaluating and treating young athletes in order to get them back on the field.
