Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Daniel J. Cipriani, MEd, PT (Medical College of Ohio School of Allied Health)
Description: This second edition is devoted to the evaluation and treatment of common foot and ankle disorders, based on a sound understanding of the biomechanics of the foot and ankle. This new edition includes updated information related to closed kinetic chain biomechanics and kinetic chain rehabilitation principles.
Purpose: This book attempts to prepare the physical therapy clinician In the area of foot and ankle biomechanics and orthotic therapy. It includes thorough descriptions of both normal and abnormal biomechanics of the foot and ankle; it also includes techniques for orthotic fabrication and prescription.
Audience: Practicing clinicians in the fields of physical therapy and athletic training are the targeted audiences for this book. It is also recommended for physical therapy students; however the narrow scope of this text makes it better suited as a reference textbook rather than a course textbook for the student. Physician assistants may also find this text useful as a clinical reference for the evaluation of patients with foot/ankle disorders.
Features: The chapters devoted specifically to biomechanics, pathomechanics, and treatment strategies are especially useful. This includes a very thorough description of a comprehensive biomechanical evaluation, the techniques related to orthotic fabrication, and suggestions for orthotic prescription. The text also includes a chapter devoted to the diabetic foot and a chapter devoted to surgical interventions; both chapters are very helpful for descriptions and references. Finally, two new chapters include descriptions of closed chain biomechanics and kinetic chain rehabilitation techniques.
Assessment: This is a well organized textbook devoted to the understanding of foot and ankle biomechanics and the unique strategies of orthotic management for foot and ankle disorders. Use of the terms "closed chain" and "kinetic chain" in two chapters appears to be an attempt to update the first edition to meet the needs of the modern clinician. This textbook will be very useful for the clinician new to the area of foot and ankle biomechanics. It is a useful reference for students, but may not serve as a course textbook because of its narrow focus, which is an advantage for the clinician.

Booknews
A comprehensive text on the anatomy, pathomechanics, and treatment of the foot and ankle, for students and clinicians. It contains 13 chapters in three sections: biomechanics of the foot and ankle, biomechanical evaluation, and treatment approaches to restore normal movement. This revised and updated edition (first was 1990) deliberates on the concept of the foot as an important part of the lower kinetic chain. Two new chapters have been added, on closed kinetic chain and gait, and on the application of kinetic chain rehabilitation in the lower extremities. Annotation c.
