Podiatry (or podiatric medicine as it is currently known) is a specialty devoted to the study of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity including diagnosis, investigations, and medical and surgical treatment. The term podiatry came into use in the early twentieth century in the USA and is now widely used worldwide, including in countries such as the United Kingdom and Australia. This chapter primarily focuses on common conditions encountered in podiatric practice. It introduces injection intervention of the foot and ankle, describing techniques used, with and without imaging modality. The musculoskeletal conditions that afflict the foot and ankle are tabulated and some of the common conditions are described briefly.
