Clinical Skills in Treating the Foot Reviews


"This is a really useful book, with a clear and logical arrangement of chapters. It discusses the different treatments at the podiatrist's disposal, providing good diagrammatic and photographic illustration to aid understanding, as well as discussing treatments options for specific client groups and the factors that need to be considered.

I would recommend it to any undergraduate as a key text book, very readable and worth investing in."

Liz Perkins, University of Southampton
