Sports Neurology, Vol 158. Handbook of Clinical Neurology

  • ID: 4579872
  • Book
  • 512 Pages
  • Elsevier Science and Technology
1 of 2

Sports Neurology is designed to be a comprehensive overview of neurology within the context of sports medicine. This definitive text addresses the history of sports neurology, including its unique role within sports medicine, and provides a detailed assessment of central and peripheral nervous system injuries and illnesses in athletes. Sports Neurology is a critical companion for all sports medicine clinicians and for neurologists who manage athletes.

  • Provides an introduction and overview of concussion in sport, discussing the epidemiology, biomechanics and pathophysiology of concussion, as well as considerations for sideline evaluation and emergency room diagnosis and management
  • Explores the long-term consequences of concussion and repetitive head impacts and the relationship with neurodegeneration
  • Offers an overview of mild, moderate and severe brain injury classification; compares moderate and severe traumatic brain injury within the context of civilian, military and sports circumstances
  • Describes key issues for the evaluation and treatment of cervical spinal cord injuries, peripheral nerve injuries, and sports-related pain
  • Provides an overview of neuroepidemiology and the importance of obtaining meaningful sport-related neuroepidemiologic data that will ultimately provide the foundation for making data-driven decisions for central and peripheral nervous system injuries in sport
