Foreword to the fourth edition Humans were not designed to sit at desks all day and in front of televisions all evening, and this physical inactivity is related to a host of health-related issues.
Increasing physical activity is one very powerful way to mitigate many of the health issues we face today, and programs such as the Healthy People initiative and the Exercise is Medicine campaign encourage individuals to remain active throughout their lifetime. This text is extremely comprehensive, covering fundamental principles of biomechanics, diagnosis and treatment, regional musculoskeletal injuries, and medical problems. The text also addresses those practical issues of sports medicine that are often missing from other texts, such as dealing with athletic teams, covering endurance events and working with the elite athlete.
The organization of the text makes it remarkably easy to use, including such features as color-coded book sections, flow diagrams to reinforce concepts, and tables that clearly organize information. This information has been assembled by a group of over experienced and world-class physical therapists, physicians, and scientists. These co-authors provide up-to-date references when available, and clearly state when evidence is lacking.
These Masterclasses are expected to expand and they provide a remarkably dynamic component to the text. It is exciting to watch Clinical Sports Medicine evolve substantially with each edition.
