Book Description :

This study explores sense-making and identity strategies of athletes managing pain and injury both personally and socially. In- depth interviews were conducted with athletes from either organized sporting leagues or corporate sport programs. This study suggests that athletes may utilize the sense-making resources of "apocryphal assessment" and "shock testing" in order to interpret their pain and/or injury. In addition, the identity strategies of buffering, eclipsing and eulogizing are used by athletes to socially manage pain and injuries in their sports with regard to his/her role as athlete. The sense-making resources and identity strategies articulated in this study have potential application to other social contexts outside of sports.

Book Description :

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.

Book Description :

This book is a comprehensive source of information and guidance on health risk management and medical care across the entire range of sports, in athletes of all ages and ability. General health aspects, injury prevention, first aid and emergency management, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and return to play are all addressed, with presentation of practical recommendations throughout. All medical disciplines with relevance for athletes - from psychological aspects to dermatological issues - are as well as main pathologies, overuse injuries and indications for surgical treatment of all certain parts of the musculoskeletal system, covered. Key features include a clear structure, short chapters in protocol format, and the inclusion of helpful checklists and tips and tricks for a quick and in-depth overview. Detailed attention is paid both to the medical care, specific to injuries of different parts of the body, and to special considerations relating to individual sports. Among the sport disciplines team sports, athletics, winter sports, track and field, martial arts, motor sports and cycling, extreme sports, swimming and water sports, racket sports, other IOC sports, and Paralympic sports are covered. Due to raising population of certain modern non-IOC sports, e.g. E-Sports, beach sports, flying sports and canyoning, and paltry medical information in this disciplines we put a focus on them. The book is a collaborative work from the newly created ESSKA section European Sports Medicine Associates (ESMA), which brings together the various disciplines of sports medicine. It will be an ideal resource and decision-making tool for doctors, athletes, coaches, and physiotherapists.

Book Description :

Psychologically Informed Physiotherapy is a key new textbook for those who need a trusted and comprehensive resource to guide them in applying psychosocial perspectives to their physiotherapy practice. The first of its kind, this textbook brings together an international and interdisciplinary team of leading experts in the field. Together they present an evidence-based range of ideas and concepts around the psychologically informed practice framework, bringing psychosocial aspects of physiotherapy to the fore alongside the established biomedical model. By applying these aspects to screening, exploration and triaging, physiotherapists are better able to identify the origins of pain and barriers to rehabilitation; and so are more likely to achieve consistently good clinical outcomes for their patients. Throughout, clinical case studies ensure that the theory is then grounded in a variety of practical scenarios after which some reflective exercises and clinically relevant scenarios reinforce learning and understanding. Chapters on: Psychology of professional identity in health care The biopsychosocial model Screening for red flags Adapting interactions with others to form empowering relationships and influence behavioural change Neuro-immune-endocrine interactions and clinical practice in stress, pain and recovery Care of the anxious patient through cognitive and person-centred strategies Alternative and evolving models of practice, including the clinical flag system The psychology of the athlete from the physiotherapist’s perspective Using counselling and psychological strategies within physiotherapy Making evidence-based decisions and measuring effectiveness in practice Using psychological interventions as a student or new graduate First textbook of its kind for physiotherapists Ideal confidence booster for both students and practitioners new to the subject Illustrates the role social factors have on thoughts, emotions and behaviour in patients as well as the neurobiological manifestations of social stressors Presents key, evidence-based concepts from leading international academics, clinicians and researchers in the field and across a range of health professions, including counselling and psychology

Written by a team of leading international experts on sport management and sport in society, the book explores important topics such as: - Corporate social responsibility in sport - Race - Gender and sexuality - Sport and the media - Globalisation - Politics and policy - Social class, social capital and social exclusion Each issue is examined from the perspective of the manager or practitioner in sport, and each chapter includes a range of useful features, such as case-studies and self-test questions, to encourage the reader to think critically about the role of sport in society and about their own professional practice. This is the first sports management textbook to be based on the assumption that a more socially aware manager is a more effective manager and it should be essential reading for all sport management students"--
