Extensively revised, the Fourth Edition of Athletic Training and Sports Medicine is a multi-purpose, multi-course text that emphasizes the post-injury management techniques used by certified/licensed athletic trainers and physicians in management of orthopaedic injuries. The collaboration of athletic trainers, sports medicine physicians, and physical therapists provides a balanced, in-depth review of common muskuloskeletal injuries, acute treatment, and rehabilitation as well as medical conditions that impact the entire body. In each chapter, following a description of the pathology, considerations are presented for immediate management, surgical/medical interventions, follow-up management (e.g., short-term bracing, immobilization), and factors influencing patient care. Published with the AAOS, this comprehensive guide will benefit anyone who treats orthopaedic injuries, including primary care physicians, sports physical therapists, orthopaedic surgeons, and physician assistants.
