Sports Medicine Bible : Prevent, Detect, and Treat Your Sports Injuries Through the Latest Medical Techniques

Sports Medicine Bible : Prevent, Detect, and Treat Your Sports Injuries Through the Latest Medical Techniques

Out of the lifestyle revlutiion of the past quarter century has emerged a new kindof recreational athlete,oen more likely to pursue a physical activity that brings health benefits than to tackle a traditional "rough-and-tumble" sport. As a result, "overuse" or "chronic" injuries, such as "runner's knee" and "swimmer's shoulder", are increasingly replacing sprains, strains, and breaks as the badge of the weekend Warrior.The sports medicine profession has responded to the rise in overuse injuries by placing greater emphasis on injury prevention, developing new diagnostic and treatment techniques, and promoting rehabilitation as an aid to full recovery. This is what Dr. Lyle J. Micheli, one of the nation's foremost sports medicine authorities, calls the "new sports medicine."In The Sports Medicine Bible, Dr. Micheli responds to the need for more and better answers to the questions posed by recreational athletes desperate for sound medical advice that will help them return to their physical regimens as quickly as possible. He emphasizes strength and flexibility as the keys to injury prevention, encourages early motion rather than immobilization during the rehabilitation process, and recommends other proven techniques that are replacing the sports medicine techniques of past generations.This book covers the whole spectrum of sports medicine, including special sections on nutrition, female-specific sports injuries, exercise and the elderly, structuring a workout, flexibility and strength, clothing and footwear, and proper equipment. Separate chapters examine causes and symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of injuries to the foot; ankle; lower leg; knee; thigh; hip, pelvis, and groin; back; shoulder; elbow; wrist; hand and finger; head and neck; and skin.By following the guidance and guidelines embodied in The Sports Medicine Bible, the recreational athlete can heighten his or her fitness experience, while learning the most modern techniques for effectively managing sports injuries. Written in clear, straightforward language with hundreds of illustrations, The Sports Medicine Bible is destined to become an essential piece of equipment in every athlete's gym bag.

Survival Medicine: Handbook to the prepper's long term survival guide

Survival Medicine: Handbook to the prepper's long term survival guide

Are you all-set for the next natural disaster, apocalypse, or crisis? If you've planned, you may have the essentials like non-perishable foods, water, flashlights, and maybe a first-aid kit. While these things are great, you may need to know and store more when long-term crisis hits. So, what do you do? Many people do not realize that a first-aid kit is not sufficient for many survival situations, especially those that last for an extended period of time. The problem is that if you need medicine, you are not going to be able to find it. You cannot go to the doctor and it’s likely that your local pharmacy has already been raided for supplies. It is in these trying times where survival is essential. What Exactly is Survival Medicine? Survival medicine is the knowledge and ability to care for everything from small scratches to serious injuries in an emergency. It is a skill that can save you, your family, and anyone else you may encounter that needs help. Why Survival Medicine is Important Many people look at survival medicine as stocking up on some helpful over-the-counter medicines and coverings for wounds for their survival kit. However, survival medicine entails much more. To be adequately prepared, you must know what to do once your supplies run out. Survival medicine teaches you about common ailments, good over-the-counter medications to stock up on, and how to use your surroundings to make medicine in an emergency, by relying on herbs, berries, and other plants. Disasters like political unrest, natural events, or an apocalypse can last a few days, a few months, or even longer. Events during this time are unpredictable. The conditions of the situation and the stress that the people living through it undergo result in an elevated risk of injury. Because of unsanitary conditions, illnesses are also common. This is especially true once you run out of your stored food supply and need to rely on supplementing from nature. By brushing up on your survival medicine, you can save your own life, the life of someone you love, or the life of a stranger. With this, you'll be able to think on your feet and potentially save someone's life.
