Sports medicine is the nom du jour for general orthopedics. While a few conditions occur exclusively in sports, the overwhelming majority of conditions that effect athletes also effect the nonathletic population. The emphasis on fitness and staying healthy leads many borderline “athletes” to seek the attention of sports medicine specialists for their general orthopedic conditions. As a result, sports medicine specialists treat many nonathletes. Thus, any text on sports injuries should discuss conditions seen in the general population, as well as those rare conditions limited to athletes. The second edition of Baxter's The Foot and Ankle in Sport, edited by David Porter and Lew Schon, achieves this goal. Most of the maladies discussed are seen both in athletes and in nonathletes. However, the book also contains erudite discussions on esoteric conditions that are limited to specific sports and their participants and not seen in the general population. Because of this, Baxter’s remains an important resource for any practitioner treating patients with foot and ankle disorders.
