about this item

Volleyball is one of the four most popular sports internationally for men and women and has been an Olympic sport since 1964. The publication of this second edition of the Handbook on Volleyball provides a comprehensive resource for medical doctors, physical and occupational therapists, nutritionists, and sports scientists working with athletes participating in volleyball internationally and at all levels of competition. The overall aim of the Handbook Series is the enhancement of the health and welfare of all athletes, Olympic and international level, national level, and with club and school teams.

More than 10 years have lapsed since the first edition was published during which time the sport has rapidly evolved.

The contents include chapters on biomechanics, injuries of shoulder, knee and ankle, principles of rehabilitation, the young athlete, the female athlete, and the athlete with impairment.
