  • A chart of common musculoskeletal complaints, with potential causes and treatments assists the reader in quickly and easily finding the potential cause of their pain
  • A summary of all the recent studies done on women’s musculoskeletal injuries ensures the reader that advice is backed by hard data
  • Nutritional advice gives the reader information on what to eat to ensure bone health, muscle health, and an anti-inflammatory diet

Musculoskeletal Health in Women aims to provide fitness advice tailored to women. As women are more prone to specific injuries than men are, due to differences in hip and knee anatomy as well as hormonal differences, this book will provides a fully-illustrated and comprehensive overview of all aspects including energy availability (which is affected by eating disorders), osteoporosis, and menstrual function. Its multidisciplinary approach ensures that expertise is provided from disciplines such as psychiatry, physiatry, endocrinology, nutrition, rheumatology, orthopedics, physical therapy and radiology.

Written by authors who have extensive experience working with women athletes, Musculoskeletal Health in Women addresses a full spectrum of issues related to the musculoskeletal health of women. It is of primary interest to women athletes and women embarking on a fitness regimen. Health professionals working in this area would also invariably benefit from the advice and guidance provided within these pages.
