When you get hurt, you have fears. You have questions. Ice or heat? Should I see a doctor? Will I need surgery? This book answers those questions and allays those fears. Dr. Jordan Metzl, one of the nation’s leading sports medicine physicians, breaks down all the information into easy-to-follow strategies for effective self-treatment—while letting you know in no uncertain terms when you should go see your own doctor, pronto.

Understand: Metzl isn’t just a doctor. He’s an elite athlete, having completed 9 Ironman triathlons and 29 marathons. He understands the mind of the athlete, how psychologically devastating any injury can be, and what it takes to get you back in your game as quickly and safely as possible.

Lots of misinformation ("inguinal hernias 'always' need surgery" -- not true). Further, it's sloppily written. Here's a quote (can you figure it out)?
"While standing, bend your arm to 90 degrees and lift your elbow up and to the side until your arm is level with your shoulder and parallel to the floor. Holding the 90-degree angle, raise your hand until your forearm is vertical. Return to the starting position.”
