"A previously good textbook has just got better! I particularly like the colour coding for chapters. Sections have been updated by experts in the individual topic areas. The new illustrations are used to demonstrate principles and example exercises. Brilliant: it is difficult to praise this book highly enough as it is an excellent textbook. The new illustrations, updated sections and use of eminent sports medicine specialists as co-authors help to reassure that every effort has been made to improve this book."--BMA REVIEWER QUOTE
Clinical Sports Medicine has been fully updated from the popular 2nd edition (2000). It is even more practical, now superbly illustrated, easy-to-read and packed with substantially updated and new material. There are samples of several chapters online including the whole "Pain in the Achilles region" chapter. This book describes a completely symptom-oriented approach to treating clinical problems.
The practitioner can turn to the chapter that describes the patient presentation (e.g., longstanding groin pain, acute ankle injuries) and review the likely differential diagnoses, the clinical approach, and the full color pictures of the physical examination (physical examination for several major systems are also available as a separate DVD.
