Editorial Reviews Review

If you're an avid athlete or recreational exerciser, chances are you'll need to deal with an injury sooner or later. This helpful reference book should be on your bookshelf--preferably before you get hurt. The American Running and Fitness Association, an organization promoting aerobic exercise of all kinds, has brought together 32 specialists who write simply and clearly about the cause, symptoms, and treatment of every overuse injury you're likely to experience, from the familiar ankle sprains, shin splints, knee problems, and low-back pain to less common injuries such as hip pointer, baker's cysts, and bowler's thumb. The articles are organized both by injury (if you know the diagnosis) and location (if you just know where it hurts).

But don't wait until you get hurt to use this book. You can prevent many overuse injuries with certain precautions and the right program of strengthening and stretching. Conquering Athletic Injuries gives you 27 stretches and 26 strength exercises--all clearly illustrated--and then points out which exercises are best for preventing injuries in specific sports. You'll even find articles on topics such as shoe modifications for specific foot problems, avoiding heat injuries, and running with diabetes. An immensely useful resource. --Joan Price
