Summary:Originally planned as a modified and updated second edition of the successful 1985 text edited by Schneider, Kennedy, and Plant, editors Fu and Stone added sections on conditioning, preseason evaluation, athletic training, and special interests, as well as expanded sections on treatment, to provide a comprehensive reference text covering a variety of sports at all levels, as a reference for physicians with a sports-oriented practice, and trainers and coaches whose concerns are the relatively common problems of their athletes. The volume is divided into three sections: evaluation, training and special concerns (11 chapters); sports-specific injuries (33 chapters); and management and treatment of systemic and regional injuries (14 chapters).
