Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Indianapolis-based orthopedic surgeon Fink and Boston-based orthopedic academic and surgeon Mizel present general practitioners, foot and ankle specialists, and patients with a practical resource explaining--in everyday language--the anatomy and mechanics of the foot and ankle, common problems, and treatments. The opening chapter offers general readers guidance on finding the right medical professional for evaluation and treatment. Subsequent chapters address forefoot overload as one of the main causes of foot problems; common regions of pain, including the big toe, small toes, midfoot, hindfoot and ankle, and skin; and the effects of certain systemic problems and conditions, such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. Also included is a section of references and explanations of various non-surgical methods for approaching foot problems. The book is illustrated with b&w photographs and diagrams.
