Podiatry is the specific branch of medicine that deals with diagnosis and treatment of conditions of the foot and ankle.This specialty is generally practiced by Doctors of Podiatric Medicine, or podiatrists along with general orthopedics surgeon. A podiatrist may treat a myriad of issues from the relatively minor, such as corns, to major conditions and injuries, like fractures.
Podiatry practices may be solo, with only one doctor, or they may function within a medical group. Some podiatrists work in combination with groups of doctors in related specialty areas. For example, a podiatrist may work in conjunction with an orthopedic surgeon or in a multi-specialty practice for the treatment of the specific podiatry needs of diabetic patients.
Commonly, minor conditions that may require a podiatric consultation include corns and calluses. These are both characterized by thick, hard skin that may be dry and flaky. A podiatrist may remove such excessive tissue, especially if an infection or persistent ulceration is present. Patient education is generally provided to assist in prevention of further tissue injury.

Patients may seek a podiatrist’s advice for dealing with athlete’s foot or fungal nail infections. Both of these conditions are caused by similar strains of fungi. Treatments may be topical or oral antifungal drugs, and may take several months to completely eradicate the infecBunions, or bony protrusions at the base of the big toe, may be more difficult to treat. A bunion often causes the big toe to angle inward towards the second toe, a condition referred to as hallux valgus, or hammer toe. These conditions, if excessively painful, may require intervention by a podiatrist. Treatments can include changes in footwear, exercises, corticosteroid injections, or surgery.
Another condition that may be treated in a podiatry practice is plantar facilities. Plantar facilities are the inflammation and irritation of the thick tissue that extends around the heel. Frequently accompanied by severe heel pain, this condition may be treated with anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, orthotics shoe inserts, or surgery. A podiatrist may perform several tests to confirm the diagnosis and try multiple treatments to assist the patient with relief of symptoms.
Any injury to the foot or ankle may also be evaluated by a podiatry provider. Diagnostic imaging may be used to determine the extent of the injury and treatment. Casting, splinting, or other treatment may be provided in such cases.
Common foot conditions that need special & specific attention are heel pain tarsal tunnel syndrome, claw toe, hammer toe, mallet toe, hallux valgues, Bunion flat – foot, arch problem, hagleend – deformity, Tendo-achilles tendonitis, plantar spur, congenital deformity of foot, post injury stiffness or deformity.
