Sport’s is becoming more popular as obesity is now more established in young children. However, the more children who participate in sport, the more injuries naturally will occur. Solomon Abrahams releases a simple guide to sports injuries in children and adolescents. His book, Sports Injuries in Children and Adolescents is designed to help provide sports medicine doctors, musculoskeletal clinicians, physiotherapists, sports therapists, osteopaths, rehabilitation therapists, and other respected colleagues.
Injuries in children and adolescents tend to be unique due to the ever-changing physiology of the growing child and the psychology they normally present with. Understanding the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the child will hopefully give the medical colleagues every opportunity of identifying and managing their injuries better. Comprehensive but concise, this guide will help clinicians in the diagnosis and management of common and less common injuries seen in this important age group. It provides specialist information, evidenced based, in a unique area of medicine.
The book also helps the clinician to deal with emergency situations and provides a unique insight to the physiological and psychological changes seen in the growing child. In addition to the wide variety of pathologies discussed, additional information and specialist areas have been added, including nutrition in children, strength and conditioning, obesity, psychology of the growing child, child protection and common medical problems which can affect children. It also includes Photo’s, X rays and pictures for visual guidance and help in clinical testing.
Insightful and thorough, Sports Injuries in Children and Adolescents is a valuable guide for those involved in sports medicine, providing evidence-based and reliable materials in dealing with injuries caused by sports.
