Sports and Exercise Medicine
Foot problems which family Doctors may frequently encounter for diagnosis and management encompasses an entire podiatric undergraduate program, and so this discussion will focus on the biomechanical and anatomic basis for better understanding the core clinical bedside concepts for intelligent physical diagnosis. The mechanics of the foot/ankle pulley systems and three Roman foot arches aggravating foot pain syndromes will be discussed. Photographic illustrations will take us to the bedside. Skin and nail pathology will not be discussed but rather mechanical and inflammatory pathology presenting largely with pain and deformity. The emphasis will be on local/regional pathology with some commentary on referred and neuropathic pain and the role of imaging. The goal will be multiple pearls in clinical podologic diagnosis.
