A diverse set of conditions affect the lower extremities in athletes. Good history taking and knowledge of the anatomy of the affected areas can aid in accurate diagnosis. Most conditions can be treated conservatively with great success. Familiarity with rehabilitation strategies can assist physicians in working with physical therapists. New advances, especially in the therapy of plantar fasciitis, may aid physicians in more rapid treatment of conditions of overuse. Surgery can provide definitive relief from symptoms for athletes with whom conservative measures have failed.
