Living with Sports Injuries by Clifford D. Stark, Elizabeth Shimer Bowers


Living with Sports Injuries by Clifford D. Stark, Elizabeth Shimer Bowers

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.
