This practical primer takes an evidence-based approach to caring for the adolescent athlete. Logically organized by joint, experts in sports medicine address both chronic and acute injuries in addition to congenital conditions. Fundamentals, including basic anatomy, joint examination, and patient history, are detailed. Emphasis is placed on the recognition of injury patterns unique to adolescent athletes, and algorithms are incorporated throughout to assist with diagnosis. Prevention, management, and the orthopedist's perspective on referral are outlined. The user-friendly book also highlights return to play guidelines and includes summary pearls. To further facilitate comprehensive patient care, diagnostic imaging and principles of rehabilitation are covered as well. Anatomical photos, x-rays, and MRI scans complete the text by illustrating key concepts.
