Sports Medicine, 3rd Edition

Study Guide and Review for Boards
There are other editions available.
This is the most recent edition.








Considering the various comments the authors received from a variety of readers of the past editions, it was clear that this text needed to keep the format and hold the place in the sports medicine review category of thorough, yet succinct, texts. This third edition has kept true to the sports medicine board examination content outline in order to cover all topics testable on the examination. Even the length of each chapter is designed according to how much that topic is weighted on the examination. The authors have also kept the easy-to-read outline format as well as the reference lists at the end of each chapter, which can be used for more in-depth study of the topics. The book is divided into three primary sections: General Topics; Health Promotion and Injury Prevention; and Diagnosis and Treatment of Sports Injuries and Conditions. The third section is divided into the following four subsections: Musculoskeletal Injuries and Conditions; Medical, Neurological, and Psychological Conditions; Special Populations; and Hot Topics in Sports Medicine. The authors have added a new chapter to the Hot Topics subsection on exercise as medicine to supplement existing chapters on sports ultrasound and regenerative medicine. For this third edition, they have added rationales with detailed explanations of why one answer is correct and the others are not. The book is meant to be used as a study guide for primary care sports medicine physicians (family medicine, emergency medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, and physical medicine and rehabilitation) and orthopedic sports medicine physicians preparing to take the sports medicine subspecialty examination for initial certification or recertification. It also can serve as a sports medicine reference for other medical professionals such as athletic trainers, physical therapists, chiropractors, advanced practice providers, physicians in training (i.e., interns, residents, and fellows), and other physicians interested in sports medicine.
