On publication the first edition of Paediatric Exercise Science and Medicine became the definitive text in the rapidly emerging discipline of paediatric exercise (including sport) science and medicine. Since the publication of the first edition, sport and exercise science and medicine has grown into one of the UK's major undergraduate subjects with 1,930 'sport' courses being offered at 151 institutions and UCAS receiving over 35,000 applications in 2005. Thishuge growth in undergraduate courses is now being reflected by an increase in taught masters programmes, research students, postdoctoral researchers, and university lecturers which, together with final year undergraduates, are the primary market for this text. The book is also aimed at the increasingnumber of human biology/physiology students and researchers, sports medicine physicians and students, paediatricians, paramedics, clinicians dealing with young athletes and advanced youth coaches. International interest in the children and exercise is reflected by a dramatic 123% increase in published research papers in the 10 years to 2007 compared with the 10 years to 2000 when the first edition was published (i.e. 4,377 compared with1,959).The first edition of Paediatric ExerciseScience and Medicine received excellent international reviews and was welcomed by reviewers as a coherent and comprehensive volume which offered 'state of the art' coverage of the topic. However, this material is now almost 10 years old and in a rapidly developing field requires updating andrefreshing. The second edition has retained the successful format of the first edition but has extended coverage to address recent research and new experimental techniques and methodologies which have provided further insights into understanding the exercising child. 'New' researchers who have become leaders in their field since the publication of the first edition have joined members of the original team of expert contributors who are still recognised as active leaders in their field toproduce a new edition which will be immediately recognised as the premier text covering children, sport and exercise.

World-class rehabilitation of the injured athlete integrates best practice in sports medicine and physical therapy with training and conditioning techniques based on cutting-edge sports science. In this ground-breaking new book, leading sports injury and rehabilitation professionals, strength and conditioning coaches, biomechanists and sport scientists show how this integrated model works across the spectrum of athlete care. In every chapter, there is a sharp focus on the return to performance, rather than just a return to play. The book introduces evidence-based best practice in all the core areas of sports injury risk management and rehabilitation, including: performance frameworks for medical and injury screening; the science of pain and the psychology of injury and rehabilitation; developing core stability and flexibility; performance retraining of muscle, tendon and bone injuries; recovery from training and rehabilitation; end-stage rehabilitation, testing and training for a return to performance. Every chapter offers a masterclass from a range of elite sport professionals, containing best practice protocols, procedures and specimen programmes designed for high performance. No other book examines rehabilitation in such detail from a high performance standpoint. Sports Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation is essential reading for any course in sports medicine and rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, sports science, and for any clinician, coach or high performance professional working to prevent or rehabilitate sports injuries.
