SPTS (Sports Physical Therapy Seminar) series

The SPTS series is a practice book on the prevention and treatment of the latest injuries and disorders, written by a group of physical therapists who aspire to be active in the sports world. In addition to a detailed review of the diseases and symptoms of each joint, the "My Treatment" chapter introduces in detail the treatments that each author actually uses. It is a valuable resource for immediate application and a companion series for all healthcare professionals, athletic trainers and researchers. We hope that it will be useful for the development and dissemination of optimal athletic rehabilitation.
