From the Back Cover
In the years since the late physician George Sheehan (pictured on cover) began to celebrate the virtues and values of his much loved sport in classic guides such as Dr. Sheehan on Running, the doctor's favorite athletic activity has only grown in popularity. Now practiced by approximately 30 million people in the United States alone, running is not only a source of improved fitness for about one-tenth of the population--it is also one of the most common causes of injury presented to clinicians. Yet this is the first book to offer in-depth clinical coverage of the medical needs of runners. This authoritative and expert-authored medical resource features:
*The most extensive source of running-injury management expertise to be found anywhere
*Details the comprehensive evaluation of the injured runner
*In-depth coverage of injuries most often incurred in specific types of running such as sprinting and marathoning
*Coverage of running-injury-related medical problems
*Valued strategies to help patients continue running and training during recovery
*Injury-prevention regimens and tips that can also help trainers, coaches, and runners themselves
*More than 150 exceptionally informative line drawings and photographs
