New York/Stuttgart – Muscle Injuries in Sports, recently published by Thieme, is a comprehensive volume that provides full coverage of muscle anatomy, physiology, diagnosis, imaging, treatment, rehabilitation, and prevention. It includes a new terminology and classification system based on the groundbreaking 2011 Munich consensus conference of international sports medicine experts.

“During and after my career, I have always trusted Dr. Mueller-Wohlfahrt and his team unconditionally in their unique approach to diagnosis and treatment. My hope is that this book will be received enthusiastically.” – Franz Beckenbauer, the “Kaiser” of German soccer

At a time when sports-related muscle injuries have increasingly become the focus of research and clinical studies, especially due to their impact on the absence of players during practice and matches and injury recurrence, this book makes an enormous contribution to the field. It is essential reading for all sports medicine physicians, residents and fellows, physical therapists, coaches, and other practitioners involved in caring for athletes.
