Written by two world-renowned experts, Sports Injuries, Fourth Edition comprehensively covers the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of sports injuries. Essential reading for all athletes, coaches/trainers, physiotherapists, and doctors, the updated edition of this highly popular and well-established textbook skillfully integrates scientific background and evidence with practical application.
