Sporting Injuries: A Trainer’s Guide
By Peter Dornan
Every weekend tens of thousands of people play sport.
Inevitably, some get hurt, especially in the body-contact sports. As only the top professional teams have qualified trainers, the decision on what to do for an injured player usually has to be made by an unqualified person – a part-time coach or trainer, teacher, parent, interested on-looker, or fellow player. The aim of this book is to provide a practical concise guide to the management of sporting injuries, mainly for the person with little prior knowledge, but which will also serve as a handy reference for the more experienced trainer.
