"The phrase Sports Medicine is not specific to one career/profession. It instead, encompasses a group of professionals from various disciplines whose focus is the health of an athlete. Athletes can be all ages and play on all different levels. A person interested in becoming an orthopedic sports medicine specialist must complete four years of medical school. After their undergraduate schooling is completed, training continues with a five-year residency in orthopedics. In order to sub-specialize, which is the case with an orthopedic sports medicine, another two to four years of training is required. This book is a practical guide to the field of sports science and the treatment of sports injuries. Written for students in sports science and medicine, trainees and specialists in sports medicine and related disciplines. The book presents the clinical management of both acute and chronic sports injuries and medical problems alongside the background and basic science of sports medicine. Hopefully the present book will be useful for the students of physical education and sports sciences and other related courses."--Back cover.
