It is stating the obvious to say that the foot in childhood is different in many respects from the foot in adulthood, but the differences can be often overlooked. The physical differences are readily apparent of course, but arguably the most important of the many differences is the malleability of the child's foot and leg, and the potential for influencing its structure and function in the long-term. This is a potential that must not be taken lightly. This unique book is an excellent learning resource suitable for students and health care providers in the fields of pediatrics, orthopedics, neurology, podiatry, physiotherapy, orthotics, nursing and other foot care professionals.
