The book shows how to integrate sports medicine and TCM.

Our opinion: As many TCM-therapists around the world work with athletes this textbook fills a gap by supporting the orthopedic and sportsmedicial background information explanations of the injury and the treatment methods. Best and most comprehensive book about sports medicine and TCM.
