What advice should be given to a player who has been unconscious? What symptoms should make you think that a player has fractured a rib? When is a physiotherapist most useful? How can you reduce the risk of a pulled muscle? What are the signs of an infection in a cut or abrasion? These, and hundreds of similar questions, confront coaches and schoolteachers who have responsibility for rugby teams but rarely have access to immediate medical services. Rugby Injuries helps coaches and teachers not only to reach the right answers but also to ask the right questions in the first place. The book emphasizes safety and the prevention of injury and describes the treatment of those injuries which do occur. Having surveyed the treatment of muscle, joint and skin injuries the authors then discuss those injuries which commonly occur in each part of the body. For each injury the same type of information is given - Is it safe to treat the injury or is expert advice needed? What first aid should be given? What steps should be taken by the player in the first twenty-four hours after injury to speed the recovery process? When is it safe to return to train and then to play? This information is presented in such a way that it is comprehensible to people who have had neither medical nor nursing training.
