Conference paper
Part of the Syllabus book series (SYLLABUS)


Generalized diseases, such as metabolic diseases and arthritis, manifest themselves everywhere in the body, but not least in the feet. The weight-bearing situation often makes such manifestations more disabling and painful in the feet than in non-weight-bearing limbs. Trauma and fractures in the feet are common, and sequelae after foot trauma may be painful and disabling.
