This comprehensive handbook cohesively presents foundational subjects and introduces principles and applications to support the development and practice of sports and exercise therapists.

These are presented alongside new essential and evolving topic areas.

Such a blend of fundamental underpinning and applied and experiential practical guidance gives this handbook a real sense of relevancy, and a contribution which can help to consolidate the positioning of sports and exercise therapists as key practitioners in an advancing landscape of health, exercise, sport, research and education.
