As more and more people are getting involved in sports, even the elderly, sports traumatology has become a recognized medical specialty. In sports exercises, every joint and every anatomical region can become the location of a traumatic injury: an acute trauma, a series of repeated microtraumas or even an overuse pathology. Different sports activities may produce different and specific traumas in the same anatomical region.
The aim of the book series 'Sports and Traumatology' is to present in each book a description of the state of the art on treating the broad range of lesions and the mechanisms in sports activities that cause them. Sports physicians, surgeons, rehabilitation specialists and physiotherapists will find books that address their daily clinical and therapeutic concerns.
