Sports Medicine

A Comprehensive Approach

This popular title presents complete, one-stop information on the management of sports injuries. Ideal for physicians who have not specialized in sports medicine, it offers all of the practical guidance needed to diagnose sports-related injuries...treat them in the ambulatory care setting, if possible...and refer them to a specialist, if necessary. This 2nd Edition includes brand-new coverage of the female athlete and the older athlete, plus many other updates to address a full range of current issues in sports medicine.
