© 2016,Runners suffer one of the highest injury rates of the recreational athlete. This book takes the novice and elite level runner alike through a step-by-step process of avoiding and managing injury to get to the start line.Covering running injuries around the body from foot to hip, the book focuses on 3 key aspects: staying on track and injury free; early detection; and how to rehabilitate from an injury. With the notion that prevention is better than cure, the book focuses on helping runners to understand their body, identify weakness and develop a natural defence against injury. Each of these stages will include key training sessions to add into the reader's existing programme, relevant for all running abilities.This accessible manual provides the reader with the ultimate 'pain to personal best (PB) guide'. For every common running injury, there is a comprehensive self-help guide combined with advice on how to choose the best health care practitioner for their injury, as well as what to expect during treatment and prognosis for recovery. In each section there is also a case study of a runner or athlete on their journey through the injury, providing an insight into the psychological roller-coaster runners go through on their journey from treatment to track.With a foreword by Steve Cram.
© 2015,Rather than focusing on dance injuries, this book takes a positive approach showing what a dancer can do to dance better, which, in turn, will decrease injury rates. It presents human anatomy and motion in a functional, dance-specific way that teaches the readers to appreciate and take ownership of their bodies through a tour of the musculoskeletal system and movement analysis. The book is divided into three parts. Part one, Anatomy, describes the specific characteristics that affect motion at each individual joint, demonstrated by a variety of hands-on activities for readers to perform. Part two, Movement Analysis, discusses muscles that produce movement and introduces readers to a system of movement analysis. Part three, Conditioning, provides a practical, integrative approach to exercise for enhanced performance. The written material is accompanied by anatomical line drawings commissioned for the book, photographs, and an assortment of experiential activities specifically designed for dancers.
