    Dr. Robert Gotlin, a former medical consultant to the New York Knicks, the New York Liberty, the New York Yankees, and the New Jersey Nets, has assembled 27 top specialists in sports medicine to create an authoritative guide covering more than 130 common sports injuries, including the following:

    • Knee injuries
    • Bone fractures

    This second edition also features new chapters explaining how and why injuries happen, as well as different types of injection therapies and when they may be most beneficial.
