The Practical Guide to Athletic Training
Jones & Bartlett Publishers, Jan 28, 2011 - Sports & Recreation
This text is a practical introduction to athletic training, grounded in real-world, everyday sports settings and an ideal guide for giving trainers the knowledge they need to be successful in an athletic setting. Instead of overwhelming the reader with details on all injuries and illnesses, this guide details common injuries and outlines special tests and rehab protocols that should be utilized to address those injuries. Readers will learn the various injuries an athlete may incur, the appropriate treatment and protocols to improve the athlete's ability to return to play safely, and the healing process associated with the specific injury. The text has an easy to follow format, concentrating on injuries for each major region of the lower body and then focusing on the upper body and its common injuries. Important Notice: The digital edition of this book is missing some of the images or content found in the physical edition.
