Podiatrists diagnose and treat conditions of the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg, such as tumors, ulcers, fractures, skin or nail diseases, and congenital or acquired deformity such as weak feet and foot imbalance. They also treat conditions such as corns, calluses, bunions, heel spurs, ingrown toenails, arch problems, shortened tendons, cysts, bone disorders, and abscesses. They design corrective orthotics, plaster casts, and strappings to correct deformities as well as flexible casting for immobilization of foot and ankle fractures, sprains, or other injuries. They can correct walking patterns and balance, and promote the overall ability to move about more efficiently and comfortably.
