Brukner & Khan’s Clinical Sports Medicine 5e Volume 1 Injuries – the first of two volumes that will make up the fifth edition. This is the essential guide to all aspects of preventing, diagnosing and treating sports-related injuries. It serves physiotherapists, team clinicians, athletic trainers, sports therapists, sports rehabilitators and trainers, as well as students in the health professions and in Human Movement Studies. All chapters in Volume 1 Injuries have been updated and rewritten by an international team of more than 120 sports physiotherapists and sports physicians at the top of their fields. More than 500 new figures have been added to bring the total number of illustrations to 1300.

There are 15 new chapters, including: • Shoulder pain • Acute knee injuries • Posterior thigh pain • Low back pain • Return to play • Sport-specific biomechanics

Brukner & Khan’s Clinical Sports Medicine 4e Abridged: Exercise medicine collection – retains the 19 chapters not carried over into CSM 5e Volume 1, for the use of clinicians (and students in health disciplines) who prescribe exercise to promote health and treat medical conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. These chapters will eventually be updated and additional chapters added to produce CSM 5e Volume 2 Exercise Medicine, which will ultimately replace the 4e abridged edition.

40+ clinical videos – embedded within the text and also grouped together under the Multimedia tab, this collection of videos includes valued content from the fourth edition, together with two new videos.
