What a great opportunity it is to participate in the body of information advancing the study of musculoskeletal medicine. As the physician, the readers can attest that didactic presen- tions of musculoskeletal complaints are at a minimum during undergraduate training. The advancement of individual clinical understanding of this field many times is left to the practitioner. Out of imagination, passion, or frustration, we the musculosk- etal practitioners seek to improve our abilities to provide better clinical diagnostic endeavors. The hip and pelvis is an area in musculoskeletal and sports medicine that provides continued mystery. It is the last great bastion of the unknown. Our hope in bringing together many excellent clinician authors is to provide the basis for improved approach to the patient and athlete who have complaints involving the hip and pelvis. Each chapter begins with a clinical case which is probably similar to the patients you see in your practices. Each chapter provides an approach to the diagnosis of hip and pelvis pain and dysfunction that hopefully is easily applicable to your daily activities as a practitioner. Most importantly, we hope that the material contained within this book helps you provide improved care, satisfaction, and function for your patient athletes. Jimmy D.

Pediatric Sports Medicine for the Practitioner Book Excerpt:

Comprehensive Manuals in Pediatrics are designed to broaden the prac titioner's clinical scope by providing a wide range of diagnostic and management skills ordinarily considered to be the exclusive domain of the specialists. Although the series as a whole constitutes a comprehen sive text in pediatrics, each volume stands on its own as a self-contained the busy practitioner. reference for In order to maintain a uniform style and coverage of each subject, each manual is usually written by no more than one or two authors. Each author is an acknowledged expert in his or her field and provides a comprehensive, up-to-date account of the topic under discussion. Practi cally oriented, each volume offers concise guidelines and courses of treatment. Michael Katz E. Richard Stiehm Preface Much knowledge has been generated in recent years by scientists investigating the triad: child-exercise-health. Yet little of this infor mation is available in pediatric textbooks, for application by the clinician. This book is intended to bridge the resulting gap.
