Participation rates in Paralympic sports have increased rapidly in recent years, and continues to grow. Many sports nutrition professionals are challenged by their lack of knowledge of both the functional limitations and the required alterations to training of the athlete with an impairment. This new edition provides information on the broad subcategories of all physical impairments, along with visual, hearing, and intellectual impairments. Specific areas such as body composition, supplements, and practical issues are discussed comprehensively. New case studies enhance and illustrate a direct and first-hand application to managing Paralympic athletes.
