Physical Therapy in Sport

Posted Oct 05 2009 10:01pm

image I tend to read a lot of books and journals so I am always on the lookout for new sources of information.  A few years ago I learned about a journal called Physical Therapy in Sport.  It is published by Elsevier and is the official journal of the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Sports Medicine and is officially recognized by the International Federation of Sports Physiotherapy (IFSP).  Here is the official description of the journal:

Physical Therapy in Sport is a peer-reviewed journal for all those professionals working in the field of sports medicine. Covering topics dealing with prevention, diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injury in the physically active. Regular features of the journal include:
• Original Papers
• Review Articles
• Case Studies
• Book Reviews
• Student Submissions
• Clinical Tips

Up until recently, it was difficult to find articles from Physical Therapy in Sport unless you were looking on their website, but that has all changed now that the journal is officially indexed in MEDLINE and searchable via PubMed

This is a big step in the life of a journal and a welcomed addition as the journal has had excellent articles.  I am also proud to say that I am on the International Advisory Board for the journal so can say first hand that the review process and quality of submissions is high.  I encourage you to visit their website and view some recent table of contents.  As a sneak peak, here is the list of 10 most downloaded articles from the journal in 2009:
