The injury risk in football is quite high and every player will incur more or less severe injuries in the course of their career. This is due to the stop-and-go character of the game, frequent physical contacts, changes of direction and the intensity of the game. This places very specific demands on the players. Additionally, football players may suffer from illnesses requiring appropriate treatment to avoid possible long-term health consequences. This book provides the reader with advice on the treatment and prevention of illnesses and football-related injuries. The most recent discoveries in performance diagnostics provide coaches and players with better tools to address the fitness requirements of the players or the training recommendations. These tools can also be of help in assembling a team. In this book, the authors provide up-to-date sports medical findings taken from practical experience with world class teams and make them accessible for the readers.
