Head and Neck Injuries in Young Athletes

Head and Neck Injuries in Young Athletes

Author: Michael O'Brien Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 28/03/2019

Providing the most current information on injuries to the head and neck sustained by young athletes, this practical text presents a thorough review of the complex and emerging issues for youths and adolescents involved in contact/collision sports. While concussions are among the most common injuries, fractures of the skull and facial bones and structural brain injuries can be serious and are discussed in chapters of their own, as are stingers and other cervical spine and cord issues and disease. Injuries to the eyes, ears and jaw are likewise examined. Prevention is a major theme throughout the book, as seen in chapters on protective head- and neckwear, transportation of injured players, and sideline response and return-to-play. Head and Neck Injuries in Young Athletes will be an excellent resource not only for orthopedists and sports medicine specialists treating growing athletes, but also specialists and team physicians who are on the scene at sporting events where these injuries may occur.

Psychological Aspects of Sport-Related Concussions

Psychological Aspects of Sport-Related Concussions

Author: Gordon A. (McGill University, Canada) Bloom Format: Hardback Release Date: 28/03/2019

Recognition of concussion as a serious injury, informed by neurological and physiological research, is now commonplace in sport. However, research on the psychology of concussive injury-its psychological implications and outcomes, and psychological interventions for prevention and recovery-has largely been overlooked. This is the first book to explicitly and authoritatively set out the psychological aspects of sport-related concussion from a multidisciplinary and global perspective The book attempts to offer a global understanding of the injury by presenting an historical overview; exploring the psychological implications of sport-related concussion and the influence of gender and sociocultural context on concussive injury and recovery; setting out practical guidance on working with special populations suffering from concussive injuries; and discussing the theoretical and methodological considerations for research on concussion and future directions for this research. Written by a group of leading international experts and offering a hitherto underdeveloped perspective on this crucial area of sports injury research, this book is crucial reading for any upper-level student, researcher, sport scientist, coach, or allied health professional working on sport-related concussion. It is also valuable reading for students and researchers interested in the psychosocial processes that impact injury and recovery or general professional practice in sport psychology.

Heat Stress in Sport and Exercise Thermophysiology of Health and Performance

Author: Julien D. Periard Format: Hardback Release Date: 21/03/2019

The book is designed to provide a flowing description of the physiology of heat stress, the illnesses associated with heat exposure, recommendations on optimising health and performance, and an examination of Olympic sports played in potentially hot environmental conditions. In the first section the book examines how heat stress effects performance by outlining the basics of thermoregulation and how these responses impact on cardiovascular, central nervous system, and skeletal muscle function. It also outlines the pathophysiology and treatment of exertional heat illness, as well as the role of hydration status during exercise in the heat. Thereafter, countermeasures (e.g. cooling and heat acclimation) are covered and an explanation as to how they may aid in decreasing the incidence of heat illness and minimise the impairment in performance is provided. A novel and particular feature of the book is its inclusion of sport-specific chapters in which the influence of heat stress on performance and health is described, as well as strategies and policies adopted by the governing bodies in trying to offset the deleterious role of thermal strain. Given the breadth and scope of the sections, the book will be a reference guide for clinicians, practitioners, coaches, athletes, researchers, and students.

Best Practice Protocols for Physique Assessment in Sport

Best Practice Protocols for Physique Assessment in Sport

Author: Patria A. Hume Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/02/2019

This book outlines best practice protocols for body composition analysis of high-performance athletes and provides guidance on the use of new technologies for anthropometry. While surface anthropometry has traditionally been used to assess body composition through the internationally recognised methodology of the International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK), the recent commercialisation of devices, such as bioelectrical impedance technologies, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), ultrasound, 3D photometry and air-displacement plethysmography (Bod Pod), has led to the non-standardised adoption of new measurement techniques. In this textbook, leading researchers detail standardisation procedures for each technology: in terms of athlete preparation, test protocols, test reporting, equipment calibration and data interpretation. Each chapter covers a different tool: how it works, what it is used to measure, and what the issues are surrounding its validity, practicality and reliability. This book provides an essential reference for device technicians and sport practitioners, ensuring that high-performance athletes are afforded accurate and comparable body composition information to guide their training routines.

Sport and Physical Activity in the Heat Maximizing Performance and Safety

Sport and Physical Activity in the Heat Maximizing Performance and Safety

Author: Douglas J. Casa Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/02/2019

This unique book is the first of its kind to specifically explore the science, medicine, challenges and successful experiences of assisting those who must perform and thrive in hot conditions, with an eye toward maximizing both performance and safety. Beginning with both human and comparative physiology as it relates to coping with the heat, key concepts are subsequently elaborated, including heat acclimatization, work-to-rest ratios, hydration, sleep, the effects of altitude, and the use of drugs and supplements. The sections that follow discuss heat-related considerations in individual and team sports and other populations, monitoring techniques, and medical and legal issues. Athletes, warfighters and laborers are often forced to perform intense physical activity in the heat as a part of their jobs or lifestyle. The process of properly preparing for this challenge is multifaceted and often not fully understood or utilized. Sport and Physical Activity in the Heat is an excellent resource for team physicians, high-level coaches, serious athletes, athletic trainers, exercise scientists, strength and conditioning coaches, industrial hygienists, military commanders, or anyone involved in the process of maximizing performance and safety during exercise in the heat for the athlete, warfighter, or laborer.
