Sports Medicine offers a valuable perspective that's different
from other sports medicine books. The text should be part
of any sports medicine library and will be particularly helpful
for rehabilitation information. The price is certainly a bargain"

The references are all very recent and evidence-based so you
feel confident in following the authors' recommendations...
These authors have really done a fabulous job of classifying
sports medicine information in a logical and easy-to-use format.
I highly recommend it to anyone in the sports, fitness, and/or

of Clinical Sports Medicine from the British Journal of Sports
the second edition, has been thoroughly updated and revamped
(see the section on Achilles tendons!). It is a superb book
for the clinician working with athletes, outlining the treatment
of injuries in a straightforward and clear way. It is such
a change to read a book written by physicians rather than
surgeons, with consequently a much more functional approach!
This book should be read by all sports physicians and physiotherapists
in training and should be by the desk of anyone likely to
treat athletes' injuries, GPs and specialists alike.
first part "Fundamental principles" is excellent
for someone starting out in sports medicine, but reminds us
all of the basics. It lists more sites of stress fractures
than most of us will see in a clinical lifetime, with hints
on management. The "Regional problems" (part B)
is more comprehensive than in any other book I have read with
important "practice pearls" in some chapters (why
not all?). There are often, as for ankle pain, lists divided
into common causes, less common causes, and "not to miss"
problems, making it very easy to build one's own differential
diagnosis. The layout could not be easier to follow, with
a hugely detailed contents list at the start and good index,
and the book is well referenced with advice for further reading.
There are also sections on "Sports performance",
"Special groups" (the section on the disabled is
brief but good), "Medical problems in sport", and
"Practical aspects of sports medicine"-the doping
screening, etc. So nothing is left out. If there is a fault
it is that the clinical section is too small a part of the
This book will
sell like hot cakes, and be on every course reading list."
