If you were struck down with an injury that ruined your training, or ruled you out of a competition, what would you do?

Our brand new 12-volume, 833-page Sports Medicine Encyclopaedia is the ultimate guide to protecting your body from injury nightmares…

Dear Athlete,

Before I tell you about a brand-new resource – launching today – that’s going to help you effectively manage your sports injuries, or better yet prevent them altogether, let me quickly set the scene...

Imagine that you’ve turned up for the penultimate training session before a big competition.

You’ve been building up to this event all year, and you’re on course to set a new PB. The smell of success hangs in the air...

But just as you reach the middle of an intensive workout, you’re struck with blinding pain.

That’s it. You’re out. And for how long, who knows?

Much to your dismay, it looks like this injury won’t be going away any time soon. Certainly not before the competition.

You are frustrated. Angry, even.

Surely there was something you could have done to stop this from happening...

Is there a weak spot in your body that exposed you to this type of pain? Or a new training method that would have eliminated the risk of injury?

Where could you have gone to get these answers, before it was too late?

You’re about to find out.

Every day, your commitment to sport puts you at an extremely high risk of injury. And without taking the proper precautions, just one wrong move is all that’s needed to end your hopes of that next race, game or event.

In the modern game, everything can change in a short space of time. If you’re not there to participate, your rivals will take the upper hand instead.

You don’t want to end up in that situation.

And if you do get injured, you need solutions that are time-efficient, yet long-lasting. (After all, you don’t want that injury coming back after your initial treatment.)

Until now, you’ve probably just relied on your own judgements for nursing and preventing injuries. Let’s face it, physios don’t come cheap and not everyone has access to a coach.

But if you don’t have a reliable source of expert advice, how can you expect to heal properly and stay injury-free?

After 10 years of publishing Sports Injury Bulletin, I can safely say that the successful management of your injuries requires you to have an open mind and keep right up-to-date with the latest advances in sports medicine.

There are faster diagnosis tools. Cutting-edge treatments. More effective recovery strategies. Brand-new prevention techniques.

If neither you, nor your coach, are aware of them, then you aren’t taking full advantage of the pioneering research that others around the globe are already benefitting from.

This is precisely why – to mark SIB’s 10th anniversary – the experts at Sports Injury Bulletin have created The Sports Medicine Encyclopaedia.

This brand new resource is the definitive reference for athletes like you, for discovering how to eliminate the threat of injury, strengthen your body and actually enhance your sports performance.

Inside, you will find 12 volumes filled with a wealth of practical information; putting exercises, rehab plans, case studies, research summaries and much more instantly at your disposal.

You will gain an in-depth insight into the treatments and prevention measures top physiologists and sports doctors are using right now to help athletes with a wide range of injury problems, from minor niggles and twinges to the truly career-threatening.

Once you’ve secured your copy, you’ll be able to:

  • Assess your injuries more effectively
  • Utilise breakthrough methods of treatment
  • Manage your pain while suffering an injury
  • Protect your body from future harm

I guarantee that you won’t be able to find this level of information anywhere else.

And what’s more, this information is worth $609.88 as separate volumes. I’m not even asking for triple figures today.

Protect your body
from head to toe

In a nutshell, The Sports Medicine Encyclopaedia covers the complete spectrum of injury management, rehabilitation and prevention.

It is 833 pages of authoritative, cutting-edge information that sheds light on often-undetected injury causes, highlights common misconceptions and presents you with new ways of treating and overcoming your injuries.

In other words, it’ll bring you right up to date with current best practices and thinking.

Each body part (or group of parts) has its own dedicated volume, making it quick and easy for you to get at the answers you need on a particular problem.

As well as outlining the full range of potential injuries that affect athletes today, you’ll also find tips you might not have tried before for treating them, and measures that you can take to protect the vulnerable areas of your body.

This is backed up further by a number of case studies that demonstrate how top sports medicine practitioners have successfully administered these treatments to other athletes.

With this brand-new resource, you’ll gain instant access to a vault of knowledge on how to treat and protect the following parts of your body:

Achilles Tendon

And in addition to these volumes are those focusing on a broad range of injury-based topics (many of which are often neglected by other products on the market), including:

  • Recovery as a prevention method in training
  • Core stability training for injury-free performance
  • Ways to ensure you do not come to harm in the gym
  • Managing your pain during injury
  • And much more

Every treatment has been tested and approved by sports scientists, doctors and exercise physiologists, so you can rest assured that these are techniques that really work.

Plus there’s input from surgeons and hospital consultants, to give you a much fuller picture of how any given injury can affect your body.

The contributors to this extensive guide are all well-respected practitioners and members of the global sports medicine community, and they include:
