The latest volume in this ongoing series enhances your understanding of both the injuries incurred in the game of ice hockey and the techniques used to decrease the risk of these injuries.
Twenty-three peer-reviewed papers address a diverse range of topics from the fields of sports science, sports medicine, athletic training, biomechanics, risk factor management, epidemiology, sports psychology, injury surveillance, sports equipment, physical conditioning, behavioral factors in sports, as well as case reports from individuals associated with national sports governing bodies, playing facilities, officiating, and playing rules.
Equally important, this new publication also discusses strategies of prevention, including protective equipment; different approaches to managing the conduct of players, coaches and parents, and better implementation of training and conditioning.
Four sections cover:
Measures of Injury
Head Protection and Concussions
Sportsmanship and Social Issues
Training and Performance Management
This volume is a valuable resource for hockey equipment manufacturers, biomechanical engineers, hockey coaches and administrators, sports medicine physicians, and athletic trainers.
