Description: This is the second edition of a book that describes in detail normal and pathologic gaits.
Purpose: The purpose is to update the first edition, adding new chapters and expanding others.
Audience: The audience includes orthopedic surgeons and residents, pediatricians, and physical therapists.
Features: The book explains the various elements of gait, followed by detailed analysis of the normal gait as it relates to all the joints in the lower extremity, trunk, and pelvis. Detailed analysis of pathological gait is presented with the mechanisms that could be affected by various clinical conditions. A chapter is also dedicated to pediatric gait analysis.
Assessment: This is a first-class publication on a very important subject not discussed as commonly as other issues in orthopedics. The authors are well-known experts and the book is the result of vast clinical and research experience. This is the best book available on gait analysis.
