THERAPEUTIC FOOTWEAR: A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE gives authoritative and wide-ranging information to health professionals concerned with the prescribing and fitting of surgical and corrective footwear. Wendy Tyrrell and Gwenda Carter have combined their many years of teaching and clinical experience to produce a textbook that is accessible, clear and without doubt the most definitive account of the subject currently available.
Broad in scope, the text ranges through patient assessment, suitability of styles, retail and bespoke footwear, orthoses, measuring and fitting, all from the relatively simple to the most complex of cases. There is no other available single resource that offers such complete support and guidance to practitioners who wish to prescribe, fit and assess the effectiveness of therapeutic footwear.
All podiatrists will find a knowledge base, an instructional guide and an aid to problem solving. It will also be an invaluable source of information to students, orthotists, pedorthists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and other health professionals seeking practical knowledge of this important subject.
• Unique: the only book available on therapeutic footwear.
• Authoritative: authors combine many years teaching and clinical experience in the area.
• Comprehensive: covers all aspects clearly and readably.
• Contains many line and photographic illustrations throughout.
