This book provides comprehensive information for the use in day-to-day work of the injury management process. It has three primary goals: (1) to identify important physical, psychological, and logistical issues that will benefit patients; (2) to provide practical information, guidelines, approaches, and strategies to ensure that the handling of these issues facilitates rather than interferes with the injury management process; and (3) to offer sports medicine professionals a framework with which to provide patients with information about these issues.
Comprehensive Sports Injury Management addresses three influential areas in terms of their effects on day-to-day and long-term injury management: (1) physical issues that the patient will encounter, including injury-specific information such as the nature of the damage, pain, and rehabilitation, in addition to more general physical concerns such as rest and effects on overall health; (2) psychological issues that the patient will face, including anger over the injury, postoperative depression or stress, confidence in the rehabilitation program, motivation to maintain rehabilitation, and loss of identity; and (3) logistical issues related to how the injury will affect the injured person's daily life, for example, how it will affect the person's ability to work, mobility, and satisfaction of basic needs such as bathing and transportation.
