Principles of Pharmacology for Athletic Trainers, Third Edition continues the tradition of past editions to provide applications of pharmacological principles specifically aimed at the athletic trainer. The drug categories that are included are primarily those that may be pertinent to the treatment of athletic injuries or that may affect athletic performance.
Drs. Joel Houglum, Gary Harrelson, and Teresa Seefeldt have taken a unique aspect to the organization and design of the Third Edition to be instructional discussions regarding the use and effects of drugs and of the disease states treated by these drug categories. Additionally, there is a specific discussion of the role of the athletic trainer regarding the therapeutic use and effects of these drugs.
