The book takes a fundamental approach, bringing you inside the body to show exactly what is happening when a sports injury occurs.

At the heart of The Anatomy of Sports Injuries are 300 full-colour anatomical illustrations that show the sports injury in detail, along with over 100 colour drawings of simple stretching, strengthening, and rehabilitation exercises that the reader can use to speed up the recovery process.

The Anatomy of Sports Injuries is for every sports player or fitness enthusiast who has been injured and would like to know what the injury involves, how to rehabilitate the area, and how to prevent complications or injury in the future.
