Theoretical Clinical Question # 5
What is the best performing, best functioning, least injury prone Foot Type? (Define the Ideal Foot)
"The capability to operate on a foot or fabricate an orthotic that could change a patients foot for the better is my personal theoretical goal as a practitioner.
Until I define that "Healthy and Fit Foot, and develop treatment tools that makes that foot healthier and more fit, I must wait for my patients to break down, deform, reduce activity or develop pain before I can offer them care and sadly, I am offering them band-aids and not a cure".
Dennis Shavelson, D.P.M.
It all starts with defining The Ideal Foot.
