Description détaillée : The Brain, Spine and Nerves in Sports

Although musculoskeletal injuries are by far the most common injuries seen in sports, neurological injuries are often the most serious and potentially devastating.

The Brain, Spine and Nerves in Sports is a comprehensive textbook edited by neurosurgeons Nicholas Theodore and Russell R. Lonser, internationally renowned experts in sports-related brain and spine trauma. The book covers intricacies associated with the diagnosis and treatment of sports-related neurological injuries, with firsthand, collaborative insights from a who's who of multidisciplinary neurological experts in sports injury medicine.

The book is organized into four sections and 40 thoughtfully curated chapters covering diagnosis, surgical and nonsurgical approaches, and management of traumatic brain injuries, concussions, spinal cord injuries, and peripheral nerve injuries.

The final chapter focuses on leveraging concussion data to improve the safety of American football. Each chapter blends theoretical knowledge, evidence-based practices, case studies, and practical insights derived from the authors' extensive clinical experience.
