In Ask The Foot Doctor readers discover 210 of the most commonly asked questions and most importantly the essential answers that may just change your life:
Feet perform an extraordinarily crucial job every day. With 26 bones, 33 joints, 19 muscles and 107 ligaments in each foot, lots can go wrong.
Ask the Foot Doctor offers solutions for whatever foot challenge someone may face. With a question-and-answer format, easy-to-understand explanations, real-life patient stories, and a sense of humor, podiatrist Dr. Doug Tumen helps readers take the first steps to resolving their foot issue.
Dr. Tumen’s book “Ask The Foot Doctor” is an excellent resource which should be mandatory reading for anyone wishing to gain knowledge of the beauty and wonder of the foot and ankle. It is full of useful information for any nurse, parent, coach, athlete, aging adult, and anyone wishing to stay active or become more active. It’s also currently the best available reference for physicians that don’t necessarily specialize in the foot and ankle. This book will save people from the many sources of misinformation about the foot and ankle currently given in social media. It’s not only a great reference to keep on the bookshelf, but it’s an entertaining read as well.
