Description

The work of a sports therapist is highly technical and requires a confident, responsible and professional approach. The Routledge Handbook of Sports Therapy, Injury Assessment and Rehabilitation is a comprehensive and authoritative reference for those studying or working in this field and is the first book to comprehensively cover all of the following areas:

  • Sports Injury Aetiology
  • Soft Tissue Injury Healing
  • Clinical Assessment in Sports Therapy
  • Clinical Interventions in Sports Therapy
  • Spinal and Peripheral Anatomy, Injury Assessment and Management
  • Pitch-side Trauma Care
  • Professionalism and Ethics in Sports Therapy

The Handbook presents principles which form the foundation of the profession and incorporates a set of spinal and peripheral regional chapters which detail functional anatomy, the injuries common to those regions, and evidence-based assessment and management approaches. Its design incorporates numerous photographs, figures, tables, practitioner tips and detailed sample Patient Record Forms. This book is comprehensively referenced and multi-authored, and is essential to anyone involved in sports therapy, from their first year as an undergraduate, to those currently in professional practice.
