Clinical Sports Medicine. | Voted Sports Medicine Book of the Year in 2002 (2nd edition) and 2007 (3rd edition) Brukner & Khan’s Clinical Sports Medicine is the comprehensive and practical guidebook to sport and exercise medicine. This new edition has over 200 new images and now includes video teaching (see Masterclasses tab).

Volume 1 done and dusted. Has to be printed though so the rush copies will be available in (late) December 2016. Bulk production available from the start of 2017 in good time for the January/Febuary academic terms.

Fantastic new authors — the biggest names in sports physiotherapy, all chapters renovated, tons of new MRIs, a raft of new artwork to explain the novel concepts. Best edition by a mile. Way better than 4th…

Thanks a ton to the authors and the artist – they are what makes CSM.

Thanks to all of you who have had many great things to say about the 4th edition and the work of the 115 awesome contributors.

The good news is that 150+ contributors have FINISHED the 5th edition. The 5th edition will come in two volumes. Volume 1 is the “Injuries” part and it WILL BE AVAILABLE for Xmas 2016.

Nicholas Institute of Sports Medicine and Athletic Trauma

Welcome to the Nicholas Institute of Sports Medicine and Athletic Trauma (NISMAT), a world-renowned research, teaching, and treatment center. Established at Lenox Hill Hospital in 1973, NISMAT was the world’s first hospital-based facility committed solely to the study of sports medicine, and has since played a key role in advancing the field, as well as redefining its focus. Once perceived as a discipline concerned only with repairing athletes’ traumatic injuries, sports medicine is now recognized as a science that expands the understanding of the relationship between exercise and fitness at all levels, across every age group. Whether you’re a medical practitioner or a patient, a professional athlete–or a weekend one, an occasional jogger or a marathon runner, woman or man, adolescent or octogenarian, NISMAT brings you the most comprehensive and current medical information and references available. Here, you’ll learn about injury treatment and prevention. Training tips and exercise programs. Physical

American College of Sports Medicine position stand. Quantity and quality of exercise for developing and maintaining cardiorespiratory, musculoskele… – PubMed

The purpose of this Position Stand is to provide guidance to professionals who counsel and prescribe individualized exercise to apparently healthy adults of all ages. These recommendations also may apply to adults with certain chronic diseases or disabilities, when appropriately evaluated and advised by a health professional. This document supersedes the 1998 American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Position Stand, “The Recommended Quantity and Quality of Exercise for Developing and Maintaining Cardiorespiratory and Muscular Fitness, and Flexibility in Healthy Adults.” The scientific evidence demonstrating the beneficial effects of exercise is indisputable, and the benefits of exercise far outweigh the risks in most adults. A program of regular exercise that includes cardiorespiratory, resistance, flexibility, and neuromotor exercise training beyond activities of daily living to improve and maintain physical fitness and health is essential for most adults. The ACSM recommends that most adults engage in moderate-intensity cardiorespiratory exercise training for ≥30 min·d
