Providing the most current information on injuries to the head and neck sustained by young athletes, this practical text presents a thorough review of the complex and emerging issues for youths and adolescents involved in contact/collision sports. While concussions are among the most common injuries, fractures of the skull and facial bones and structural brain injuries can be serious and are discussed in chapters of their own, as are stingers and other cervical spine and cord issues and disease. Injuries to the eyes, ears and jaw are likewise examined. Prevention is a major theme throughout the book, as seen in chapters on protective head- and neckwear, transportation of injured players, and sideline response and return-to-play. Head and Neck Injuries in Young Athletes will be an excellent resource not only for orthopedists and sports medicine specialists treating growing athletes, but also specialists and team physicians who are on the scene at sporting events where these injuries may occur.
