Release Date :
This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. Dr.
Menz uses his detailed and extensive knowledge of the subject to provide a critique of the strengths
and limitations of existing literature and to present in this easy-to-access volume a thoroughly
practical, clinically orientated and evidence-based guide. The book provides a comprehensive guide
to the assessment and management of foot and ankle problems in the elderly and older people.
Areas covered include the epidemiology of foot problems, functional implications, assessment of the
older person with foot problems, common foot problems and their management, foot and ankle
manifestations of common systemic conditions, wound management, footwear and orthotic
considerations, surgical considerations and outcome assessment. Each chapter provides a
comprehensive and critical review of the literature as well as providing practical evidence-based
guidelines for clinicians.
"This book is packed full of a wide variety of references from peer-reviewed papers in each chapter.
The author Hylton Menz, has obviously taken a clear evidence-based approach to every aspect of
the book, which makes it an invaluable tool for podiatrists & podiatry students. I am sure that
clinicians such as physiotherapists (& students) will find this book useful. I myself am a podiatry
student & am certain I will use this book for the rest of my course, once qualified & beyond. chapters
1 & 2 give a great explanation of the prevalence of foot problems & physiological changes of ageing,
which is useful in all aspects of podiatry i.e.; biomechanics- physiological changes in muscle mass
etc. The diagrams & tables are a fantastic compilation of relevant information which provide a useful
summary of the text; physiological changes of skin, muscle, bone etc & their effects & wound
classification to name a couple. Nail, skin & vascular conditions are covered well with some fantastic
colour pictures. I am really enjoying reading this book, having learnt a lot from it already. I
recommend this as an essential read for podiatrists, students & any healthcare professionals involved
in working with the older patient."
