Description

Each year, approximately 30 million students participate in organized sports in the United States, and an estimated 20 percent experience sports-related injuries. Sports injuries come in many forms, but they fall into two general categories: overuse injuries (caused by excessive stress on a muscle or bone) and acute injuries (caused by sudden trauma). "Living with Sports Injuries" provides a comprehensive overview of the causes and types of sports injuries, treatment and prevention, and more. Providing a crash course in sports injuries, this new book examines head and neck, shoulder, elbow, and hip injuries, and much more. Written in clear, straightforward language, this user-friendly book includes case studies and dramatized, real-life examples to illustrate the everyday impact of living with sports injuries.
