Summary Suspected vascular, peripheral nerve, and root nerve injuries present a particular challenge to any physician diagnosing and treating athletes. Injuries can range from "stingers" to effort vein thrombosis, and yet despite the common occurrence and potential severity of these and other conditions, little attention is paid to nerve and vascular injuries in sports medicine literature. This book is the first to gather experts in the field to fully address the complexity of neurovascular sports injuries. Nerve and Vascular Injuries in Sports Medicine takes a comprehensive look at anatomy, pathophysiology, examination and diagnosis of neurovascular sports injury, upper limb neurovascular syndrome, radicular and bracial plexus injury, and the lower extremity, including peripheral nerve injury. Illustrated throughout and dedicated to presenting the essential for managing nerve and vascular injuries, this book is an ideal resource for sports medicine physicians, athletic trainers, physical therapists, and all physicians who treat active patients
