Preventing Dance Injuries, Second Edition, contains comprehensive coverage of dance injuries, including screening, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. The book is thoroughly updated and reorganized, and it includes four new chapters that examine the determining factors in
- common injuries to young dancers;
- iliopsoas tendinitis, a condition that has recently commanded much attention in dance medicine;
- eating disorders and body image; and
- the female athlete triad as it affects dancers.
In addition, new editorial comments, section headings, and highlight boxes in every chapter aid readers in cross-referencing between chapters, finding specific subjects, and grasping contextual meaning quickly.
