This book is a practical guide and concise sports medicine reference, written exclusively for the sport of soccer. Based on Adil Shamoo's notes from years of coaching, teaching, and lecturing on the subject, this succinct handbook approaches soccer from a unique scientific perspective. The experiences of Dr. Shamoo and coauthors William Baugher, a sports medicine orthopedist, and Robert Germeroth, a physical therapist, combine to make the latest sports medicine research relevant and accessible to those who participate in the sport. Coaches, referees, players, parents, and athletic trainers from grade school through college will find the authors' knowledgeable discussion of soccer injuries to be an invaluable resource for prevention and treatment. Sports retailers, pediatricians and professionals in the field of sports medicine will also appreciate the book's comprehensive coverage of the physical, mental, and nutritional aspects of playing the game of soccer, the world's most popular sport.
