Oxford Handbook of Sport and Exercise Medicine
OUP Oxford, 2007 - Medical - 831 pages
Sports medicine is an evolving discipline. The scientific and research base is expanding and changing views on treatment, preventive strategies, and optimal exercise prescription. Clinicians are looking for evidence, and patients are increasingly aware of the need for a scientific approach. This handbook brings together the common problems and diagnoses in sports and exercise medicine with a focused summary of the latest strategies, management plans, and evidence-based protocols. Arranged by system, it focuses on the needs of the patient and offers an immediate guide to all aspects of diagnosis and treatment, exercise benefits and epidemiology. This is a must-have text for all medics involved in sports and exercise medicine.
