A Podiatrist is a specialist of the foot, ankle and lower limb. Musculoskeletal Podiatrists examine how the foot interacts with the ground and then try to consider how these forces combine and impact on the lower limb during day-to-day activities or during high impact sporting activities.

A thorough musculoskeletal assessment of a patient’s complaint is required to allow the podiatrist to accurately identify the cause of a patient’s pain and allow a suitable course of treatment to be selected. The assessment will consist of dynamic and static testing in a weight and non-weight bearing situations.

The following factors will need to be assessed:
•Standing and foot posture
•Gait (walking)
•Alignment and position of lower limb
•Joint motion
•Muscle function

Localised foot and ankle problems may come from areas located elsewhere away from the site of injury (e.g. the lower back, hip or knee), or have secondary untoward effects on other structures.
