"Overall, I would highly recommend this as a reference for pediatric residents or primary care physicians who treat young athletes. The added material in the second edition on injury prevention and sport-specific issues sets this book apart from many other books."
-- Rebecca Carl, MD, MSCI (Lurie Children's Hospital) - Doody's Review
"This workbook provides excellent, up-to-date instruction in the evaluation and management of many sports medicine injuries for general practitioners, residents, or medical students. The format with its case study approach makes it easy to read and follow and it is fairly comprehensive including many of the most common musculoskeletal injuries one would encounter in the office."
-- Aaron Karlin, MD (Ochsner for Children) Doody's Review - previous edition
Pediatricians, family physicians, nurse practitioners, residents, and medical students caring for young athletes are the intended audience. The book is aimed at general physicians and trainees rather than sports medicine specialists and orthopedists.
