New chapters on ‘Exercise and Immunity’ and ‘Eating Disorders’ have been included. This edition was written by 43 authors with the assistance of 28 special contributors.

Fully integrated and cross-referenced, this book describes the applications of science and medicine to sports. The book focuses on prevention and treatment of medical conditions and injuries, and contributions from leading workers in sports medicine, including several specialists, are authoritative and outstanding. The second edition of this book is fully updated with a number of revisions and additions, including a new chapter on exercise and immunity. Because the clinical aspects of sports science are stressed, the text comprehensively covers the mechanisms of injury in all regions of the body and the principles involved in their treatment. Topics also included are preventative measures and rehabilitation, children in sports, female athletes, doping, and the problems of the asthmatic, disabled, epileptic and diabetic athlete.
