Paediatric Exercise Science and Medicine

Recent years have seen an explosion of interest and a growing recognition of the importance and relevance of sports for children and adolescents.

Paediatric Exercise Science and Medicine is the definitive text on this increasingly important area. Written by a team of international authorities, the book explains the principles of developmental exercise science, assessment of performance, the promotion of young people’s health and well-being, and the clinical diagnosis and management of sports injuries in children and adolescents. Aimed primarily at exercise and sports scientists, sports medicine physicians, paediatricians, and clinicians dealing with young athletes, the book provides ‘state of the art’ coverage.
