It presents the core knowledge in a concentrated and concise format. Arranged by system, it focuses on the needs of the
patient and offers an immediate guide to all aspects of diagnosis and treatment, exercise benefits, and epidemiology. Practical, accessible, and clinically based, this is the single global handbook for the undergraduate, postgraduate or experienced specialist.

Review from previous edition This is an excellent handbook and reference guide. Its comprehensive review of sports medicine with a focus on quickly accessible, usable information is rare in this field...its compact size and logical arrangement by body areas makes it excellent for quick on-field review [but it is] equally useful as an office reference. Just as Harrison's Manual of Medicine, 16th edition is in every medicine resident's white coat, this
handbook should be in every sports medicine fellow's medical kit. * Doody's Notes, *
