    The latest volume in this comprehensive series enhances our understanding of both the injuries incurred in the game of ice hockey and of the techniques used to decrease the risk of these injuries.

    Twenty-one peer-reviewed papers cover injury prevention and decreasing the risk of catastrophic injuries. Half of the papers in this book cover head and neck injuries, focusing on their analysis, prevention, and treatment of concussions.

    The four approaches to achieve these objectives include:
    • Changes or improvements in protective equipment
    • New coaching techniques
    • Changes in the playing rules
    • Awareness of possible injuries by the players and coaches

    These papers were written by experts in their fields, including researchers in a diverse group of fields, including sports medicine, biokinetics, mechanical engineering, neuropsychology, sports litigation, and sports epidemiology.
