This book will indeed be useful for all health professionals who deal with patients who are athletes of one kind or another. All sports other than swimming require a shoe of one kind or another. Many patients and clients who are athletes, or thinking simply of becoming regular exercisers, will have questions about shoes and about orthoses. Many who might benefit from the latter do not know about them or might think that one bought from a drugstore shelf will do the trick when indeed that is not the case. While for the podiatrist this book presents a good deal of technical information in one place, for the non-podiatric health care provider this book provides very helpful information on when and how to make appropriate referrals. Some chapters provide the detail required by the specialist, while others provide more general information useful to all potential readers.
