    Hi all,

    So, I'm a "podologue" the term we use in France to describe your profession...we're not doctor, we do not pratice surgery and others...only limitate to the plantar orthesis and care about feet.
    In France, the patient are not concerned by bomecanical problem, pathology, shoes...they don't know how the feet are so important...that's why i'm searching articles, new research to write a book in my country and increase my knowledge in clinical practice.
    The podiatry is so developped in the anglo-saxons country...and i want to know everything, to be better for me and my patient...ahhhhh if i could study in the United States....:bash:

    Otherwise, if you could advise me about some books...i'll take...;). And sorry for my scolar english, ...i'm 32...

    Bye

    Bonjour feetpro,

    :welcome:

    (I'm ashamed to say that is the limit of my French) :eek:

    There are other French members on this site & it is good to increase their numbers.

    The Google translation facility is amazing should you have any difficulty with posts in English (although your English is much better than my French) ;)

    Might be worthwhile asking the lovely Admin crew about including a French section in the 'Country Specific Issues' section.

    Your question RE: books & articles may be better asked in the main forum.

    Many regards,

    Hello Feetpro,

    I'm french too and try to improve my podiatry and my english (more specially the technical words) with "podiatry arena" since a few years!
    I was first of all interested in biomechanics because we could put into practice in France.
    The problem is that this important field of podiatry is not thaught enough to the students in France.
    If there was book to write in french, I think that it would be first about biomechanics and orthotics!

    I'm 32 years old too and live and work in Angers (near Nantes).

    A+
    Fred
