The foot is a complex, highly evolved structure that bears the weight of the body and acts as a lever to propel the body forward while walking or running. It is designed to carry the body over varied terrain with little apparent difficulty. Although most injuries are minor and heal with time, undertreated and unrecognized injuries can result in significant long-term pain and disability. Radiographs are sometimes difficult to interpret, and seemingly minor abnormalities can be associated with a significant injury.
