The book surveys every classification of sports injury, offering clear advice on fieldside assessment, diagnosis and treatment, as well as examining best practice in general aspects of sports medicine, such as prevention and the psychology of injury.

Written by a team of world-leading physicians from North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia, this book is a `must have' reference for any doctor, physical therapist, or medical professional working in sport.
