‘Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation in Sport’ examines the key factors at play in the reduction and prevention of injury to athletes at all levels of sport. The book combines the latest scientific research with a critical review of current literature and the author’s own personal experience working in the field of strength and conditioning at elite level to explain why certain modalities should or should not be prescribed by strength and conditioning coaches. Full colour sequenced photographs showing the correct techniques for a wide variety of essential strength exercises Explains how to effectively manage recovery and avoid overtraining Illustrated techniques for range of movement and corrective exercise Describes the most effective methods for shoulder and trunk stability Examines the theory and practice of proprioception and plyometrics and how they can improve performance Explores the different methods employed when working with female or maturing athletes Looks at the physiological impact of factors such as sleep patterns, travel, climate and illness on performance Considers the strength and conditioning techniques available to the practitioner when an athlete is immobile or recovering from injury Includes advice on how to assist the work of the therapist and bridge the gap between rehab and fully functional sports training The book concludes with a series of case studies that illustrate how to put theory into practice AUTHOR: Ross Bennett was originally an aspiring football player registered with a number of football clubs as a youth team player but after injury and lack of progression he decided to enter the academic world.
