9780443071546: Physical Therapies in Sport and Exercise

This unique, evidence-based textbook examines therapies for sport and exercise. It outlines the research findings that support various physical therapy treatment approaches. With the increasing role that physical therapists now play in prevention and management of sports injuries, this book is a must-have for all practitioners in the field.

  • Covers the theory and application of motor control and motor relearning in the management of sport and exercise related injury.
  • Addresses the mechanisms of pain production in acute and chronic conditions, outlining a variety of strategies for the assessment and management of sport exercise injuries.
  • Provides evidence for the use of exercise in injury prevention and rehabilitation, with a focus on strength training, endurance training, interval training, plyometrics, and stabilization training.
  • Focuses on psychological factors affecting the onset and rehabilitation of injury, in addition to issues related to rehabilitation adherence, the role of the physical therapist in applying basic cognitive-behavioral techniques, dealing with long-term and pain, and general counseling.
  • Covers principles of screening that can be applied to a range of sport and exercise activities, describing assessment of the athlete's general health, pre-activity musculoskeletal function, identification of predisposing factors to musculoskeletal injury, the relevance of obtaining baseline data, and factors that may affect sport and exercise participation.
  • Focuses on standardized evidence-based outcome measures appropriate for use in assessing sport and exercise related injuries in each region of the body.
  • Evaluates the various electrophysical agents commonly used by physical therapists from a scientific perspective, such as therapeutic ultrasound, laser therapy, magnetic therapy, interferential therapy, and hyperbaric oxygen.
  • Outlines the assessment and management of conditions specific to children and adolescents involved in sport and physical activity, highlighting injuries and conditions related to the immature musculoskeletal system.
  • Covers specific issues related to the assessment and management of conditions in older individuals involved in sport and physical activity, including the impact on physical therapy assessment and management of age-related changes to the systems of the body, guidelines for exercise prescription, pharmacological agents, and comorbidity.
  • Examines gender differences in the assessment and management of the active female, including the menstrual cycle and alterations associated with exercise, use of oral contraceptives, eating disorders, and exercise during pregnancy.
  • Outlines the assessment and management of conditions specific to disabled individuals involved in sport and physical activity, examining injuries commonly found in people with neurological disorders, amputees, and wheelchair athletes.
  • A chapter on pharmacological agents in sport and exercise focuses on the use of analgesics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, corticosteriod injections, and medications used for specific conditions (e.g asthma) and the impact of these on injury repair, exercise participation, and physical therapy management - as well as the effect of performance-enhancing drugs on athlete health.
  • Provides an understanding of the various imaging modalities used in diagnosing sport and exercise-related injuries.
  • Offers an overview of common medical emergencies in sport and exercise and the role that physical therapists (as primary contact practitioners) are required to undertake in the first-aid management of these issues.
