`Science and Medicine in Sport' comprehensively covers both sports science and medicine, providing applied information for medical practitioners and other allied health professionals, as well as postgraduate students. The book covers both the prevention and treatment of injury, with well-integrated and cross-referenced sections on sports science and sports medicine. The second edition has been completely updated and the sports medicine section had been expanded considerably, with emphasis on the prevention of injury. New chapters on 'Exercise and lmmunity' and 'Eating Disorders' have been included. This edition was written by 43 authors with the assistance of 28 special contributors. One third of the text deals with sports science, while the remainder covers the mechanisms of injury and the principles involved in their treatment to all regions of the body. The final section gives consideration to the special issues of children in sport, the female athlete, doping, the immune system and the problems of the disabled, asthmatic, epileptic and diabetic athlete.
