Q. Where can I find online information on sports related injuries?
One good source is "Sports Injuries Sourcebook, 4th edition" found in the Gale Virtual Reference Library accessible with your library card and pin numbers through the "My Digital Library" link on the Library's web page (hmcpl.org). This 2012 resource is part of the Health Reference Series from Gale. It describes the basic types of sports injuries and discusses protective equipment and injury prevention strategies for specific activities. It also provides facts about nutrition, supplements, diagnosis and treatment for children and young athletes. An excellent source for parents with young athletes and students doing reports on this topic.
