Coping with Sports Injuries Summary


Coping with Sports Injuries: Psychological Strategies for Rehabilitation by Edited by Jane Crossman (Professor, Professor, School of Kinesiology, Lakehead University, Ontario, Canada)

When an athlete gets injured great attention is paid to understanding the physical nature of their injury and putting in place strategies for rehabilitation. Too often though, the psychological effects of injury are not even considered, yet an injury can have a profound psychological effect on the well-being of the athlete. To attend only to the physical effects is to leave a part of the athlete effectively untreated. Jane Crossman is one of the world authorities on the psychological effects of sporting injuries. In Coping with sports injuries she has brought together the leading researchers from sports science and medicine to firstly discuss and explain the ways in which the athlete is psychologically affected by injury, before going on to provide effective and proven methods for helping the athlete through this difficult period. The information in the book will be valuable in helping to ensure that they can return to their field of activity fully treated. Coping with sports injuries is a unique book that will be of enormous interest and benefit to sports physicians, sports scientists, team doctors, and anyone involved in the rehabilitation of the injured athlete.
