4th edition - another major advance - woohoo!,
This review is from: Brukner & Khan's Clinical Sports Medicine (Hardcover)
Pleased to share the news that this has 40% new material over the 3rd (white) edition. If you are still using a 2nd (red) edition, do everyone a favour and move up to this 2012 - best yet - version of Clinical Sports Medicine (green cover illustrated on the right there). What remains great? The clinical relevance, the artwork, the easy to find treatment tables and the wealth of illustrations. It is a BEAUTIFUL book. And it is in stock - yeah!!
What's new? Lots and lots - can you believe how much has changed in 6 years! 200 new photos/graphics of clinical tips. 13 new chapters!! See the website [...] for a full tour but a taste includes (i) management of hamstring injuries, (ii) management of hip and groin problems, (iii) neck pain with Gwen Jull, (iv) core stability and and patellofemoral pain, (v) management protocol for ACL treatment where indicated, (vi) sudden death in sports, (vii) concussion guidelines (Zurich), (viii) emergency medicine, (ix) Military medicine, (x) pain science and its role in clinical practice with Lorimer Moseley. I'm going to stop there but do take the tour. You can also get clinical tips for free on Twitter (at) CSM4ed The [...] page will include a regular blog of tips.
It took a lead team of 9 authors with over 100 chapter authors to get this book out - so definitely worth considering the upgrade. Treat two patients and you've paid for the book.
