SUMMARY

"This new monograph helps you manage and prevent sports-related injuries, for which there is increasing evidence of sex-based differences. Women's Sports Injuries addresses sex-based and gender-based differences in incidence, risk factors, and etiology and identifies areas for potential intervention or prevention. The conditions explored in this resource represent areas for continued investigation to reduce the risk of short-term and long-term effects of sports-related injuries. The concise chapters provide insight regarding the treatment recommendations for each condition as well as how injuries occur differently in women than in men. Recognized experts in their respective specialties provide current concepts of management and offer advances, tips, and pitfalls related to the treatment of common injuries"--Publisher's description
