Merriman's Assessment of the Lower Limb has established itself through two editions as the benchmark text book of lower limb examination and assessment. The third edition preserves the lucidity, logical approach and comprehensive coverage of its predecessors but adds many exciting features, including online resources (videos and images), many new contributors, thorough updating of all chapters - many of which have been completely rewritten - and an entirely new chapter on functional assessment. The online resources (access via [external URL] provide extensive videos of assessment techniques and illustrations: practitioners with patients and models show how to assess all parts of the lower limb, and evaluate various conditions.

Together with its companion volume Clinical Skills in Treating the Foot, the new third edition of Merriman's Assessment of the Lower Limb is a truly indispensable guide for podiatry students and practitioners, as well as trainee general practitioners, medical students working in rheumatology, diabetology and orthopaedics, sports therapists and sports medicine trainees.
