But the playing fields also area filled with an abundance of 'weekend warriors' who value their own knees no less, and with increased participation in sports and exercise programs, in general, comes increased risk of injury. Sports medicine thus is relevant not only to collegiate and professional athletes and the health professionals who treat and advise them, but also to parents and their children, amateur athletes, and aging people maintaining a fitness regime. We offer the most comprehensive and accessible resource available on sports medicine via an encyclopedia running to four volumes presenting state-of-the-art research and evidence-based applications. The work is broad ranging, covering all aspects of sports medicine with perspectives from the medical, behavioral, and social sciences and physical education. From A-to-Z, this work covers the spectrum with entries included from such areas as body systems, regional injuries (craniofacial, shoulder, knee, etc.), special populations (female, pediatric, older athletes), sport-specific injuries (basketball, football, swimming, etc.), rehabilitation, nutrition, substance use and abuse, sports psychology, the team physician, and more."@en ;
