Sports-specific rehabilitation.

Ed. by Robert Donatelli.

Churchill Livingstone


352 pages




Donatelli, who works in sports specific rehabilitation, brings together 17 chapters by contributors in the fields of physical therapy, bioengineering, and others from the US, UK, and New Zealand. They discuss a scientifically based clinical approach to evaluating and treating athletes by considering the skeletal, muscular, and neural systems and how they function both separately and together. The disciplines of exercise physiology, strength and conditioning, rehabilitation, and sports specific training are considered in sections that cover the basic science of soft tissues; muscle physiology; fatigue, damage, and overtraining; the pathophysiology of overuse injury; sports-specific testing; the physiological basis of exercise; and special considerations. Appendices include case studies.
