Any Given Monday: Sports Injuries and How to Prevent Them, for Athletes, Parents, and Coaches - Based on My Life in Sports Medicineby James R Andrews
Synopses & Reviews
One of the most renowned sports surgeons in the country uses his extensive experience with athletes across all sports for the prevention and treatment of sports injuries—especially among young athletes.
Every year, more than 3.5 million children under the age of fourteen require medical treatment for sports-related injuries. More than a fifth of traumatic brain injuries in children are a direct result of athletics. Now, Dr. James Andrews—a leading expert in sports medicine—offers this essential compendium of knowledge as a solution to curb these daunting statistics.
Any Given Monday is a guide for parents, coaches, athletes, and sports fans familiar with Dr. Andrews’s work with some of the biggest names in sports—from Drew Brees and Jack Nicklaus, to both Manning brothers. Dr. Andrews’s goal is that every athlete—and those involved in an athlete’s life—take positive steps towards safety by preventing the injuries that can be prevented, and properly treating the ones that can’t. Prescriptive and invaluable, this book is a tool for both maximizing talent and protecting the body for a lifetime of physical activity and health. It also emphasizes and promotes the importance of the American Orthopaedic Sports Medicine Society’s “STOP Program” to prevent injuries in youth sports.
From tennis elbow to severe trauma, Dr. James Andrews has treated countless sports injuries during his unparalleled medical career. An orthopedic surgeon, well known for performing Tommy John surgeries, and a consultant to some of the fiercest teams in college and professional sports, Dr. Andrews is the father of modern sports medicine and one of the most influential figures in the world of athletics. In Any Given Monday, he distills his practical wisdom and professional advice to combat a growing epidemic of injury among sports’ most vulnerable population: its young athletes.
Every year more than 3.5 million children will require medical treatment for sports-related injuries, the majority of which are avoidable through proper training and awareness. Any Given Monday is Dr. Andrews’s sport-by-sport guide to injury prevention and treatment, written specifically for the parents, grandparents, and coaches of young athletes. From identifying eating disorders to preventing career-ending ACL tears and concussions, Any Given Monday is a compendium of practical advice for every major sport, including football, gymnastics, judo, basketball, tennis, baseball, cheerleading, wrestling, and more. This invaluable guide reveals how young athletes can maximize their talent and maintain a lifetime of health both on the field and off.
