    While primarily focused on sports medicine, this book covers essential topics related to sports injuries and their management. It emphasises the integration of clinical practice and evidence-based approaches, which aligns well with the goals of sports rehabilitation.
  • Gennarelli, S. M., Brown, S. M., & Mulcahey, M. K. (2020). Psychosocial interventions help facilitate recovery following musculoskeletal sports injuries: a systematic review. The Physician and Sportsmedicine, 48(4), 370-377.
    This article aims to explore the effectiveness of psychosocial interventions in enhancing the recovery process of athletes who have experienced musculoskeletal sports injuries. This comprehensive review assesses the impact of various psychological and social interventions on not only physical healing but also on emotional well-being, adherence to rehabilitation programs, and overall return to sports participation
  • “Emerging Trends in Sports Rehabilitation” (Various Articles).
    Stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in the field by reading articles from reputable sports rehabilitation journals. Journals like the “Journal of Orthopaedic & Sports Physical Therapy” and the “International Journal of Sports Physical Therapy” regularly publish research on rehabilitation techniques and evidence-based practices.

By immersing yourself in these recommended readings, you’ll be well-equipped to grasp the complexities of the field, contribute to evidence-based practices, and excel in your studies.
