KEY INSIGHTS ABOUT THE BOOK

  • The text is divided into three sections. Section I consists of Chapters 1 through 5 and begins with a review of some of the basic principles of sports medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, particularly in reference to musculoskeletal health and injuries. The information is presented in such a way that truly blends the theories and ideas of traditional Chinese medicine and sports medicine. Specific topics help to illuminate how these two systems of medicine complement each other. The rest of Section I reviews the basics of different treatment options including: acupuncture, therapeutic exercise, internal and external herbal medicine, moxibustion and adjunctive techniques like kinesiological taping, cupping, bloodletting and gua sha.
  • The second and third sections of this book consist of Chapters 6 through 12, also known as the “injury chapters.” Section II presents the reader with numerous injury conditions involving the neck, shoulder and upper extremity, while Section III covers the low back, hip and lower extremity. Each injury contains a detailed description, including typical mechanisms of injury, assessment and treatment suggestions, and a list of common TCM patterns that present in the localized area of the injury. A detailed prognosis that discusses the amount of treatment necessary and the timeframe for rehabilitation is presented at the end of each specific injury.
  • At the end of Chapter’s 6-12 contains a section on rehabilitative exercise that includes proprioceptive, stretching and strengthening exercises that are appropriate for different injuries.
