Book Description

A practical guide for those interested in developing their clinical skills as providers of foot and ankle care. It will enhance skills in physical examination and decrease the dependence on expensive tests. The first five chapters provide a foundation in foot and ankle terminology, anatomy, and biomechanics, as well as a systematic approach to the evaluation. A structured examination routine as outline in Chapter 2, performed repetitively, will help the examiner avoid critical omissions. Subsequent chapters deals with common foot complaints on an anatomic basis. Each of these chapters details examination techniques specific to the part of being assessed. Finally, common manifestations of systemic disease in the foot and the differential diagnosis of in-toeing are discussed.
