Secrets to Keep Moving: A Guide from a Podiatrist


This is a book from practicing podiatrist Richard L Blake, D.P.M. of San Francisco, California. This book is a mixture of the art and science of medicine that Dr Blake practices everyday. Dr Blake describes the basic and common protocols for injury treatment of the foot, ankle, and leg. His emphasis is conservative, but covers 95% of all non-surgical injuries that Dr Blake will treat every year. Dr Blake tries to empower his patients, and those reading this book, to understand their options of treatment and the subtleties that are out there to improve their health. With so many treatments available, Dr Blake tries to create a healing environment with his patients from the first visit. Dr Blake will co-treat with his patients, sports medicine physicians, primary care physicians, physical therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors, trainers, and coaches trying to create a well rounded approach where everyone has an equal say in the treatments. The book starts by exploring some basic rules, the general topics of rehabilitation, the treatment of pain, the bio-mechanical treatments of injury, the gait evaluation, and then specifics on tendinitis, nerve injuries, and fracture treatments. The book ends with very specific protocols on many injuries involving the front of your foot, mid part of the foot, heel of the foot, ankle, achilles area, and lower leg not involving the knee or above. Dr Richard Blake has practiced at the famed Center For Sports Medicine at St. Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco for now 35 years. He loves to teach and tries to give patients the time and energy they deserve. This book will help them, and all those reading this book, to know how to help themselves heal with the right steps, with a little help from the medical community.
