Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and indexes.
Summary The text is intended for the advanced student and the clinician who uses orthoses to treat mechanically induced pathology. The author and publisher have endeavored to make Recent Advances in Orthotic Therapy a step beyond what is currently being taught in the classroom, and create a compilation of documented and anecdotal evidence regarding orthotic decision-making. The text is a must for any practitioner who wishes to update their knowledge of the recent literature concerning orthotic therapy. The text is constructed in a manner to provide a logical approach to orthotic therapy, and therein establish the concept of pathology-specific orthotic therapy in the professions that prescribe orthoses for adults and children. It is believed that this text and its philosophy of pathology specific orthoses will improve clinical outcomes, lromote more consistent research, and faciltate the acceptance of orthotic therapy as a valued therapeutic modality.
