  • Detailed guide to the evaluation and treatment of sports injuries in relation to the Tanner stage of sexual development in young athletes
  • Includes helpful algorithms on the diagnosis and treatment of ligament tears
  • Written by recognized leaders in the field who explain their own treatment preferences

This handy volume focuses on the evaluation and treatment of a wide range of sports injuries, in relation to the Tanner stage of sexual development in young athletes. Recognized leaders in each subspecialty illustrate their own treatment preferences, and a series of detailed chapters address the injuries likely to be encountered in different parts of the body, including the spine, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand, hip, knee, ankle, and feet.

Among the topics that receive particular attention are epiphyseal-physeal injuries, the still controversial issue of capsular ligament tears and the impact of their treatment on joint and bone development, and stress syndromes of the musculoskeletal system. Helpful algorithms covering the diagnosis and treatment of ligament tears are included, and advice is provided on when to return an athlete to training. One chapter is devoted to non-sports-related pathologies that have to be considered in the differential diagnosis of sports injuries in adolescents.

Written by a multidisciplinary team of experts, this volume will be an excellent guide in diagnosis and in evaluating the impact of treatments for all professionals dealing with young athletes; orthopedic surgeons, physiotherapists, general practitioners and athletic trainers.
