In full color, this clear and concise text provides a comprehensive overview of the field and the job skills of certified athletic trainers. To establish a solid foundation, the book covers the evolution of the profession, systems of the body, and the body’s responses to injury.

    • Issues & Ethics boxes focus on the types of situations in which an athletic trainer may be forced to make a difficult decision affecting a team or an individual.
    • Summary boxes, tables, and lists make key information easy to find and easy to learn.
    • Points to Ponder include questions for further thought and analysis, helping readers apply content to realistic situations.
