For example this morning I referenced the book on hamstring injuries, and the only information they had on hamstrings was on stretching.
Very disappointed in the content.
This book gives an introduction in injuries, compared to just typical aches and pains. It covers in great detail methods to prevent injuries, and then it provides information on how to treat them when they occur. It offers several different exercises for cross-training than can also help you to avoid running injuries, and it has chapters specifically for certain people and how they might be different. By different, I mean it has a chapter dedicted to children and another dedicated to women, and another dedicated to older runners. I think that last one should be very helpful to me as I approach retirement age.
I found this to be a very interesting read and I intend to keep it for reference. Barrios has done an excellent job covering this subject.
before you will need it. It covers most common injurys including prevention and cure.
I keep this close simply because something is always rearing it's ugly head and making
me say ouch!
