Description

The general and specific structures of the back—including the cervical, thoracic, and lumbo-sacral spine—are presented and illustrated in this book to be used as a basis for clinical practice. Diagnosing, managing, and rehabilitating sports-related back injury is extremely challenging due to its critical location in the body and its many components. Written by an anatomist and sports physiotherapist, this reference includes case histories showing how knowledge of back anatomy can be used to arrive at correct diagnoses, benefiting a wide range of professionals concerned with sports disorders and injuries.
