Sports Physiotherapy Book

A new Sports Physical Therapy book (in German) edited by THIEME VERLAG in May 2011 !

My contribution: a case report … and the picture on the front cover – with a big THANKS to my friend VICTOR STANCESCU, captain of the KLOTEN FLYERS!

Here a presentation taken from the thieme website:

Sportphysiotherapie verstehen und anwenden!

Vom Breitensportler bis zum Profi:

Alle Physiotherapeuten, die Sportler behandeln, benötigen ein umfassendes Wissen über sportphysiotherapeutische Maßnahmen. Erstmalig wird dieses Wissen in einem Fachbuch von zahlreichen Autoren umfangreich zusammengetragen.

Das Buch besteht aus 2 Teilen:
1 Theoretischer Teil mit allen für den Sportphysiotherapeuten wichtigen Inhalten, z. B. Doping, Sportpsychologie, aber auch Schnelldiagnostik auf dem Spielfeld und sportphysiotherapeutische Maßnahmen.

2 Praxis-Teil, in dem sich Experten “über die Schulter blicken lassen” und einen Fall in einer spezifischen Sportart beschreiben, z. B. im Fußball, Handball, Eishockey, Basketball, Kunstturnen, in der Leichtathletik, im Ski Alpin und mehr.
