Anatomy Of Sports Injury
For anyone who plays sports and is looking to facilitate recovery or prevent injuries
Everyone who plays sports experiences injuries. Many people never fully recover because they're not aware of what they can do to facilitate recovery. But there's no need to simply resign yourself to "living with" a sports injury. In The Anatomy of Sports Injuries, author Brad Walker brings years of expertise--he works with elite-level and world-champion athletes, and lectures on injury prevention--to this how-to guide. The book takes a fundamental approach, bringing you inside the body to show exactly what is happening when a sports injury occurs. At the heart of The Anatomy of Sports Injuries are 350 images. This second edition includes updated illustrations and more anatomical information and is for every sports player or fitness enthusiast who has been injured and would like to know what the injury involves, how to rehabilitate the area, and how to prevent complications or injury in the future.
The Anatomy Of Stretching
When The Anatomy of Stretching was originally published, it was the first book to cover the topic of anatomy and physiology for stretching and flexibility.
Since then others have been written, but no other book on the subject contains more examples of stretching exercises, or is able to take detailed anatomical information and present it in a way that is easy for everyone to understand.
This is where this book is different: it is able to take you inside the body and show you both the primary and secondary muscles in action during the stretching process.
The Anatomy of Stretching looks at stretching from every angle, including:
1. Physiology and flexibility
2. The benefits of stretching
3. The different types of stretching
4. Rules for safe stretching
5. And how to stretch properly
Aimed at fitness enthusiasts of any level, as well as fitness pros, the book also focuses on which stretches are useful for the alleviation or rehabilitation of specific sports injuries.
Plus in this second edition:-
1. Over twenty new stretches have been added
2. The chapter on physiology has been expanded
3. More detailed anatomy has been included with each stretching chapter
4. The top five stretches for a range of sports and sports injuries are listed
5. And a new numbering system has been included to help reference each stretch.
