Description

This concise volume in the Encyclopaedia of Sports Medicine series, published under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee, provides a dependable source of current knowledge available on tendinopathy and covers both the basic science and clinical aspects of the subject. Despite its high incidence, the precise etiopathogenesis and effective treatment of tendinopathy remain elusive. Tendinopathy in Athletes draws on the expertise of an international and prolific collection of contributors, both clinicians and scientists, who provide new insights into this specialized area. This book: * provides a comprehensive resource for both clinicians and researchers with information organized logically, with an easy-to-follow progression from the basic scientific findings to clinical applications * discusses the full range of treatment modalities, including new molecular and biological approaches, plus surgical and alternative approaches to tendinopath * contains "What We Need to Know" sections that suggest future areas of research for young investigators.
As tendinopathy remains one of the most common injuries encountered, both in sports and at the workplace, this essential volume is sure to be a source of frequent consultation.
