Athletic Forever: The Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic Plan for Lifetime Fitness
In this eagerly awaited book, Dr. Frank Jobe and his colleagues use the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinics' proven regimen of preventive and therapeutic treatments to provide the recreational athlete with an authoritative program for injury-free, lifelong fitness. With detailed discussions on aging, performance, specific body parts and exercises, nutrition, and rehabilitation, Athletic Forever explains how to avoid injuries, recognize them when they do occur, and how to avoid the "sideline syndrome" -- the progressive withdrawal from physical activity that marks the American lifestyle.
