This authoritative text, written by international experts in the field, presents a comprehensive review of the medical aspects of sports in relation to the following specific groups of clients: children and adolescents/women/veterans (the over 30s)/and special groups (those with specific medical conditions and the disabled). This approach by client group rather than by sport or type of injury is unique.
