Understanding Sports Injury Book
As a coach (or a parent), you have to wear a lot of hats when it comes to your athletes; coach, mentor, trainer, leader, motivator, etc. Add, injury consultant to that list and all of a sudden, it gets a bit overwhelming.
There are an estimated 1.4 million sports related injuries every year in high school athletics (and that doesn't include the millions more at the youth level and the college level). Injury is a fact of life for the athlete and as the coach, you have to make decisions all the time about an injury's severity and the immediate next steps - whether an athlete should walk it off, ice it, compress it, keep playing, or go to a doctor.
It's impossible to make accurate decisions without the right information; reliable, easy to find, and perhaps most importantly, easy to understand information. That's why Understanding Sports Injury was written - to give you that info.
