Basketball is a further volume in the Handbook of Sports Medicine ad Science Series, published under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee. It represents the most complete approach to the sport of basketball and its injuries yet published.
This Handbook covers the epidemiology of basketball injury, the physiological demands of basketball, nutritional requirements, preventive medicine, preparticipation examination, and special considerations given to the young groups such as diabetics, asthmatics, and epileptics.
Basketball is presented in a very practical manner to provide a 'one-stop' reference source on the sport of basketball for use by physicians, trainers, and coaches in the care of their athletes. Douglas McKeag Jul 2003
