Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0781702593, Hardcover)Baseball-related injuries--their prevention, diagnosis, and treatment--are the focus of this comprehensive volume that will be of practical value to both the medical professional who treats sports injuries and the sports professional who often must contend with them. The book is divided into six major sections written by experts from both the medical and sports fields. The first major section addresses proper athletic conditioning and prevention of injuries, focusing on strength and power training, important biomechanical considerations in pitching, as well as proper pitching technique that can help prevent major injuries. Diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of baseball-related injuries are discussed in the next section, which covers anatomy, examination, x-rays, and both conservative and surgical treatment of injuries of the shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist, neck and back, pelvis and hip, knee, and foot and ankle. The book also addresses important medical points to consider both before and during the baseball-playing season, including cardiac evaluations and preseason physicals, medical emergencies specific to baseball, nutrition, the hazards of drug use and smokeless tobacco, and many other relevant topics, ranging from psychological counseling to the medicolegal aspects of the game. The book also devotes a special section to medical problems particular to prepubescent and adolescent baseball players
