Sports Medicine and Exercise Science in Video

"Valuable for students and instructors in medical school and allied practitioner training programs. Summing Up: Highly recommended." CHOICE

For practitioners in the fields of sports medicine and exercise science, no textbook or training resource can compare to receiving an up-close view of world-class experts treating real-life clients. But often, access to such in-depth, in-person sessions is limited due to the realities of scheduling, budget, and patient access.

Sports Medicine and Exercise Science in Video brings the experts straight to you by providing instant access to hundreds of hours of high-quality video for the study of disease management, injury treatment, nutrition, special populations, fitness and health assessment, medical fitness, exercise adherence, sport science, worksite wellness, and much more. 

Developed through an exclusive partnership with Healthy Learning, the world’s leading producer of sports medicine videos, the collection contains 800 hours of content, an extensive library of expert lectures and practical demonstrations showcasing literally thousands of skills and techniques.

The collection features the most popular titles from the American College of Sports Medicine’s catalog, including well-known classics like ACE’s Guide to Exercise and Weight Control, Drills and Exercises to Improve Agility by Jay Dawes, and Exercise Testing and Program Design: A Fitness Professional’s Guide by Barry Franklin. Students and faculty will have a firsthand look at the realities of health, wellness, and the impact of exercise on the human body, as well as the subtleties of applying particular techniques and treatments to achieve specific health-related goals. Reading about palpation of the cervical spine can’t compare to watching Alfred Castillo, MS, ATC, head athletic trainer at Southeast Missouri State University, perform and explain the process in vivid, high-quality video.

Designed for use in both graduate and undergraduate settings, Sports Medicine and Exercise Science in Video is an essential resource for a variety of programs, including athletic training, health promotion, physical education, kinesiology/human movement, exercise physiology, nutritional science, sports medicine, sports science, and physical therapy. This cutting-edge, comprehensive collection covers myriad key areas, including aging, back pain, behavior modification, cancer, chronic disease management, concussions, heart health, nutrition and weight control, obesity, women’s health issues, youth sports injuries, and much more.

Quarterly updates keep users abreast of the latest developments. More than half of the new titles will feature the latest demonstrations of procedures, techniques, and skills.
