How many books do you need ...

... to study Sports Therapy? Well... in my case that'll be 11!!! ;)

Wieviele Buecher braucht man, um Sporttherapie zu studieren? In meinem Falle waeren das 11!!! ;)

First the books provided by Sports Rehab & Education who are the provider of the course:

Zuerst die Buecher, die in der Kursgebuehr inbegriffen sind (von Sports Rehab & Education):


And then the books I bought myself or got them as presents (some from the "Reading list" of the course, some just because it's relevant to the sport I am involved in ... American Football - so that's "Collision Sports" and "Taping Techniques"):

Und dann die Buecher, die ich selbst gekauft/geschenkt bekommen habe (manche sind von der Buecherliste vom Kurs, andere habe ich, weil sie relevant fuer den Sport sind, an dem ich beteiligt bin...American Football - so das waeren dann "Kollisionssport" und "Taping (Bewickelung um Gelenke) Techniken"):
It's quite funny that most of the books are named in the course not by their title, but by the authors ... Like "The Tortora" (Principles of Anatomy and Physiology), "Bruckner & Khan" (Clinical Sports Medicine), "Palastanga" (Anatomy & Human Movement).

Es ist ganz witzig, dass die meisten Buecher im Kurse nicht beim Titel, sondern bei dem Hauptautor genannt werden... Z.B. "Der Tortora" (Prinzipien der Anatomie & Physiologie), "Brucker & Khan" (Klinische Sportsmedizin), "Palastanga" (Anatomie und Koerperbewegungen).
    Quite a lot, huh? And I am pretty sure there are some to follow ... like specialised books for Knee /Shoulder /Ankle injuries.... And something else I have purchased since I am studying ... it's my 2 (so far, but am after more!!) Cryocuffs!!! :) So far I have the Knee Cuff and the Shoulder Cuff but I am desperate (LOL) for the Ankle Cuff . That should cover the main injuries I seem to come across in Gridiron (at American Football games).

    Eine ganz schoene Menge, mmmh? Und ich bin mir ganz sicher, dass da noch mehr dazukommen...z.B. spezialisierte Buecher ueber Knie/Schulter/Knoechelverletzungen... Und noch weiteres, das ich gekauft habe, seit ich mein Fernstudium angefangen habe ... das sind meine 2 (soweit, ich moechte aber noch mehr!!) "Cryocuffs"!!! :) Soweit habe ich die Kniemanschette und die Schultermanschette, aber ich suche verzweifelt nach der Knoechelmanschette. Das sollte die Hauptverletzungen decken, die ich so beim American Football sehe.

That's a lot of books!

(I think I found it easier to read your blog when it was just in English. But maybe that's just because the bilingual posts are new to me?)

Mmmh... would it be easier if I keep the English together and the German as well? Two blocks kinda? Was wondering that myself ....

What do you, my readers (LOL) think?

The strange thing is that I miss that nice, big pile of textbooks. I certainly don't miss the exams but I do miss immersing myself in knowledge.

Happy reading :o)

Just an update to readers that Clinical Sports Medicine is now in its 3rd edition - a lovely white-covered book that is in full colour with lots of really useful colour artwork.

Interestingly, Elsevier published a red book with runners on the cover called 'Clinical Sports Medicine' - confusing eh!

I wonder whether that was a coincidence or whether the big brother of publishing - Elsevier - is just trying to muscle in on the success of the real Clinical Sports Medicine. Oh well!

Just remember to get the 3rd edition if you are following this blog advice :)
