Clinical Skills in Treating the Foot Summary


Clinical Skills in Treating the Foot by David R. Tollafield

In one volume, here's everything the podiatrist needs to know about the principles and practice of treating the foot. This text covers the traditional and modern methods for managing foot conditions with emphasis on the need for a holistic approach, providing an understanding of the role of other health care professionals in this area of therapy. The reader can use this text to design individually tailored holistic health plans built on the results of clinical examinations and assessment. Case studies make it easier for the reader to apply theory to practice and the structure of the book is designed to facilitate learning, revision and ready reference. And the liberal use of illustrations and learning devices makes the text more readable and accessible. The text looks at all appropriate methods of clinical management based on the following 5 basic principles: pharmacology; operative techniques (subcutaneous and percutaneous methods); mechanical therapies; physical therapies; and footwear adaptation. Details of pathology are considered, where this helps to explaining why one method of treatment may be preferable to another. Relevant physiology, pharmacology and orthopaedic principles are discussed or referred to as necessary, although the book is not intended to supplant the need for textbooks on these subjects. There is no up-to-date British book on the clinical skills relevant to treating the foot and this title fills a very real gap in the market.
