The interest in sports has expanded and changed since the first Tracer Bullet on that subject was published in 1979. Sports medicine is no longer reserved for treating the professional athlete. Today children start playing sports, such as soccer and T-ball, at a very early age, and with greater intensity than their parents did. Title IX of the Higher Education Act of 1965 has encouraged the growth in sports for girls and women. More people are physically active throughout their life, spawning interest in recreational sports at all ages as well as an interest in the techniques for resuming these athletic activities after injury.

Sports medicine is the field of medicine concerned primarily with injuries sustained in athletic activities, both individual exercise and team sports. This Tracer Bullet covers a broad range of topics from prevention to the assessment and treatment of injuries, from physical therapy and alternative medicine to nutrition, drug use, and the psychological aspects of injury. Materials on the physiology of exercise, such as why do our bodies move they way they do and what is the optimal movement for each sport are also included. Sports medicine information can be specific for the age of the athlete (youth, adolescent, adult) as well as for gender. Publications are available for professional clinicians, trainers, high school coaches, parents of athletes, and for the athletes themselves. This Tracer Bullet is designed to help individuals locate information about their sports injury or condition or to simply explore the field of sports medicine in the collections of the Library of Congress. Publications issued since 1995 are emphasized. Not intended to be a comprehensive bibliography, this guide is designed--as the name of the series implies--to put the reader "on target."
