Hi,

i've been involved in judo and the likes lately, and I've seen some painful things. I was wondering if someone could recommend me a book to study orthopedic/athletic injuries?

I can do RICE and advice an ER visit :)

I'd like to be able to better evaluate sports injuries, for my own interest, now that I'm confronted with them. I have no intention to replace a doctor or specialist.

Thanks!

I would seek the advice of your local athletic trainer, either at a local high school or college. They could point you in the right direction.

You could also try your local Physical Therapy centers.

There are colleges that offer physical therapy aide certification. That could be helpful if you are then specializing in athletic training.

Best wishes!
