Book Description

This comprehensive new volume in the Encyclopaedia of Sports Medicine series, published under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee, delivers an up-to-date, state of the art presentation of the medical conditions that athletes may suffer from during training and competition. Presented in a clear style and format, The Olympic Textbook of Medicine in Sport , covers not only the basic approach to training, monitoring training and the clinical implications of excessive training, but also deals with all the major systems in the body, and focuses on medical conditions that athletes may suffer from in each system. Medical conditions in athletes with disabilities, genetics and exercise and emergency sports medicine are also uniquely examined. The Olympic Textbook of Medicine in Sport draws on the expertise of an international collection of contributors who are recognized as leaders in their respective fields. The systematic approach followed in the book will make it invaluable to all medical doctors and other health personnel who serve athletes and sports teams. Sports practitioners are provided with a clinical approach to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of common and less common medical problems encountered by athletes. This volume should be kept close at hand for frequent consultation.
