Hello, which book(s) do you recommend covering on-field (primary) treatment of athletic injuries? I am a physical therapist asked to work for baseball/softball teams during games and on road trips/camps. I am therefore looking for good literature giving a good overview and at the same time being advanced and geared towards trainers/therapists.

There is a book "On-Field Evaluation & Treatment of Common Athletic Injuries" that was written by Dr. James Andrews, Dr. William Clancy and Dr. James Whiteside that I think would be an excellent resource for you. The ISBN number for this book is 0-8151-0218-6 It is becoming difficult to find, but I checked Amazon.com and saw that they had some used copies available.
Are there any other sports medicine books you would recommend? I am looking for something that covers a wide range besides injury treatment such as prevention, warm-up, strenght traing, nutrition, and exercise with chronic illness such as asthma and diabetes. thanks
