    ABSTRACT: Clinical Sports Medicine has been fully updated from the popular 2nd edition (2000). It is even more practical, now superbly illustrated, easy-to-read and packed with substantially updated and new material. There are samples of several chapters online including the whole "Pain in the Achilles region" chapter. This book describes a completely symptom-oriented approach to treating clinical problems.

    ABSTRACT: --Chronic Achilles tendinopathy in sports often leads to various therapeutic strategies, medical shopping and frequently to inability to perform at the desired level. --Although it is clear that this chronic tendinopathy is not an inflammatory disease of the tendon, the cause of the degeneration of the tendon fibres is not understood. --The main therapeutic measure--based on scientific evidence--is eccentric calf-muscle training for at least 3 months. --Recent therapies such as sclerotherapy ofneovascularizations in and around the Achilles tendon appear to be promising, but more studies are required. --About 20% of the patients tend to be refractive to conservative measures. --In selected cases surgery can be undertaken, with percutaneous longitudinal tenotomy proving effective in 75-80% of the cases.
