The opening four chapters cover relevant anatomy, biomechanics of the foot and ankle, and clinical and radiologic examination. The second section on trauma will be useful mainly to surgeons, but family physicians, general internists, and rheumatologists may find the three chapters on soft tissue trauma useful. Chapters 11 through 15 cover static deformities from arthritides. Five of the six chapters in Section V summarize infections, neoplasms, consequences of overuse, peripheral nerve lesions, paralysis, and paresis. The closing three chapters cover orthotics, immobilization and support methods, physical therapy, and prescription footware.
