Caine (physical education, Western Washington University) and Maffulli (Keel University School of Medicine, UK) review the existing data on injury rates in a variety of sports. This volume in the Medicine & Sport Science series focuses on individual sports, including gymnastics, martial arts, and tennis, while the next volume will discuss team sports. Sports-specific chapters are laid out with the same basic headings for easy access to information, with coverage of incidence of injury, injury characteristics, risk factors, and prevention. Intended for sports scientists and healthcare professionals, the book will be of interest to coaches and parents as well.
