The Complete Guide to Sports Injuries by Christopher M. Norris

This new addition to the well-known Complete Guide series will become an instant classic and essential introduction for physiotherapy students or any fitness professional dealing with sports injuries.

Fully illustrated and packed with photography ranging from exercises to massages to suit specific injuries, it outlines the correct position and technique. The physiology is clearly illustrated and taping methods are clearly explained step-by-step. Perfect for the non-specialist providing essential management for sports injuries, this book also includes sections on simple self massage, healing timeframes, a treatment toolbox and strategies on structuring rehabilitation effectively.
