This volume is the second in the Handbook of Sports Medicine and Science series, published under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee to bring basic scientific information and practical guidance to those who are directly involved in competitive sports.
Alpine Skiing has been written for physicians attending to competitive and recreational skiers, team coaches who have academic training in the basic sciences, physical therapists and other health-related professionals, and knowledgeable athletes. It covers anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and biomechanics as they relate to the sport, with practical information on nutrition, clothing and equipment, and injury prevention. There is comprehensive coverage of injury: immediate care, treatment, rehabilitation, and return to training. The effects of altitude, cold, and sun are discussed in a section on non-traumatic health issues.
From a team of internationally recognized experts, Alpine Skiing is the only available text specific to Alpine skiing which fully integrates scientific principles with practical considerations.
