The book is an excellent resource for anyone interested in sports injuries or doing a medical course such as podiatry or physio but it is also explained well enough so as the general public could use it.The book explains the biomechanical causes of injuries which is very useful as i'm training to become a podiatrist The auther goes into heat and ice traetment s first aid and also rehab such as strength training and goes into the basic principles. An all roung good text

This is a well-written and concise book that is well-illustrated and contains a lot of info not in most sport injury books. With clear illustrations and photos, this book makes a good reference for sports therapists, physios, etc. The only complaint I have about the book is the layout. The book is written in 2 setions: (1) Diagnosis and (2) Management. Both sections contain lots of interesting and useful info but the contents of the Diagnosis section seem completely irrelevant. For example, what does "healing", "sports massage" and "taping" have to do with diagnosing an injury? As I have an exam on The Definitions & Diagnosis of Injury, I bought this book specifically for the Diagnosis section, but have not found it useful for diagnosis at all. The book should really be called "Sports Injuries - Prevention and Management"!

I have found this book very useful, used in conjunction with the seminal "Clinical Sports Medicine by Bruckner/Khan".

Whilst not as comprehensive a text as the aforementioned, I found the management section very imformative - being full of those little written but important gems like how long a particular course of rehab should take.

However the content is let down by very many typo's. Many diagrams are labelled the opposite of the descriptions in the text, and it can be very fustrating to realise that time spent trying to understand a concept has been wasted as when edited correctly, it would have been easy to understand said concept in the first place!

Excellent book with informative, concise, detailed and specific content relative to the sports professional whether they are an athlete, coach or trainer. Book is light enough to take with you for those unexpected occasions you may need to utilise the information unlike a lot of other sports related books. Diagrams and explanations easily understood. In looking at value for money you cannot go passed this book it will supply you with all the information you need.
