About this book

A significant body of scientific knowledge has been published in sports medicine in the past few decades, but there is huge demand for practical references that address different types of sport. This demand is highest in combat sports which are both highly physical and mentally demanding, and cause challenging issues such as risk of blood borne infections, weight reduction, head injuries, and stress management.

Combat Sports Medicine has two parts, the first dealing with common topics in many combat sports: nutrition and psychology; ethical and social issues, including doping; injuries and infections; and combat sports in specific groups. The second part of the book covers aspects of sports science and injuries in selected popular combat sports are discussed.

An international team of contributors have developed this book to meet the needs of practitioners who work with combat sports athletes. Based on the best available research evidence, this represents a key reference for neurologists, psychologists, orthopedic surgeons and sports injury specialists involved in the management of patients who practice contact sports.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This unique book discusses issues involved in caring for participants in combat sports. … Written primarily for those who take an active role in caring for athletes participating in combat sports, the book will be useful for physicians, nurses, athletic trainers, and other practitioners. … With the growing popularity of combat sports worldwide, this is a valuable resource for individuals who are charged with the care of these athletes. It does a great job of familiarizing readers with common concerns encountered in these unique sports." (Chris A. Klenck, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2009)
