5 Stars! Doody's Review Service! (Perfect Score of 100)
"...This book is more than sufficient for exposing undergraduate students to sports-related injuries, how they are identified, and how they might be treated by a professional. It includes a good deal of basic anatomy and physiology that is complemented well by treatment therapies for site-specific injury prevention and therapeutic care following injury."
Written for students within Exercises Science and Exercise Physiology, Survey of Athletic Injuries for Exercise Science clearly outlines traditional prevention and care of athletic injuries for those who lack an athletic training background. It addresses the role that exercise science, exercise physiology, or professionals from other health-related fields play in the treatment of injuries and illnesses in the physically active population. The text focuses on each body segment along with other information that impacts the physically active, such as ergogenic aids, supplements, nutrition, and exercise prescription. Throughout the text case studies and realistic situation boxes discusses interesting cases from the field.
