Although bumps and bruises can be a part of almost any sport, some athletic injuries can be very serious and even crippling or fatal. Concussions, neck and spine injuries, and heart conditions can all lead to tragedy. The good news is that many sports injuries can be avoided by following proper safety techniques and using smart training and preparation.

The Encyclopedia of Sports Medicine, Second Edition has been updated to provide the latest information on the most common sports injuries, what causes them, how athletes can avoid them, and what to do if an injury does occur. More than 150 detailed articles discuss the fields of specialization within sports medicine and explain sports medicine terms in everyday language. Articles on individual sports detail their most common injuries and how to prevent them. Also included are safety tips by sport, common injuries by body area, nutrition information by sport, and five commonly misdiagnosed sports injuries.

Topics include:

  • Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury
  • Concussion
  • Dehydration and replacement of fluids
  • Exercise-induced asthma
  • Heat stroke
  • Overuse injuries
  • Physical therapy and sports medicine
  • RICE method
  • Sports nutrition
  • Tennis elbow.
