Understanding Sports Injury Book


As a coach (or a parent), you have to wear a lot of hats when it comes to your athletes; coach, mentor, trainer, leader, motivator, etc. Add, injury consultant to that list and all of a sudden, it gets a bit overwhelming.

There are an estimated 1.4 million sports related injuries every year in high school athletics (and that doesn't include the millions more at the youth level and the college level). Injury is a fact of life for the athlete and as the coach, you have to make decisions all the time about an injury's severity and the immediate next steps - whether an athlete should walk it off, ice it, compress it, keep playing, or go to a doctor.

It's impossible to make accurate decisions without the right information; reliable, easy to find, and perhaps most importantly, easy to understand information. That's why Understanding Sports Injury was written - to give you that info.

  • 200 pages of readable instruction and advice - easy to understand for all levels of athletes and coaches.
  • Over 60 full-page, color diagrams with enough detail to accurately inform without so much that you drown in medical jargon.
  • An injury index and common terms glossary make it simple to find exactly what you're looking for when you need it. This is not a textbook, it's a field manual.

Now, the doctor, the coach, and the athlete can all be on the same pageā€¦ literally. Don't risk making poor decisions because of lack of essential information. Understanding Sports Injury will remove the fear, anxiety, and confusion associated with the most common sports injuries.
