Description

Brukner & Khan’s Clinical Sports Medicine, the world-leading title in sport and exercise medicine, is an authoritative and practical guide to the complete care of people at all levels of physical activity. It is an ideal practical and reference text for physiotherapists, medical doctors, team clinicians, athletic trainers, sports therapists, sports rehabilitators and trainers, as well as students in the health professions and in Human Movement Studies.

To accommodate the rapid advances in the profession, this fifth edition has been expanded into two volumes. The first volume, Injuries, is the essential guide to all aspects of preventing, diagnosing and treating sports-related injuries. This second volume, The Medicine of Exercise, focuses on the health benefits of exercise and discusses the current medical issues in sport.

The Medicine of Exercise comprises 16 chapters from the fourth edition of Clinical Sports Medicine, comprehensively revised and rewritten, along with 24 new chapters.

The six sections of The Medicine of Exercise are:

  • Physical activity and health (6 chapters)
  • Managing medical problems (16 chapters)
  • Exercising in challenging environments (5 chapters)
  • Exercise medicine for specific groups (5 chapters)
  • Performance and ethics (5 chapters)
