With the expanding popularity of sports and with more of the population becoming physically active; students today need a basic understanding of basic injuries associated with athletics. Sports Medicine is designed for students interested in fields such as athletic training, physical therapy, medicine, fitness, physiology of exercise, kinesiology, nutrition, and other sports medicine related fields.
The focus of the Injury Assessment and Management Course is to help students develop understanding and skill in theoretical principles and applied practices related to the prevention and care of injury in sport and physical activity. Topics covered will include knowledge in injury prevention, immediate injury assessment, initial emergency care, contemporary sport-specific conditioning techniques, physical re-conditioning after injury for specific activity/sports.

The textbook can be rented or purchased. I use the second edition, but the first edition has a majority of the same information.
