Achilles tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis can be described as the inflammation of Achilles tendon. This tendon is a band of connective tissue that joins muscles of the calf to your heel bone. It is a frequent running injury or similar sports related injury resulting from intense exercise, overuse, jumping, or other activities that can irritate the tendon and calf muscles. more...

Corns

Foot corns are very similar to calluses, because they form as the skin has thickened in response to excessive pressure. The main difference between foot calluses and foot corns is that calluses are wider and flatter patches of thick skin, and corns are thick, smaller, usually circular or dome-shaped areas. Foot corns can become painful when left untreated.more...

Heel spur

Heel spurs are often associated with plantar fasciitis. A heel spur is a bony protrusion that may develop on heel bone (calcaneus). This is also a point of attachment for plantar fascia. Without proper attention heel spur can potentially become very debilitating and painful. The key for the effective treatment of the heel spur is finding the cause of excessive stretching of the plantar fascia.more...

Mortons neuroma

Thickening of tissue around one of the nerves that leads to the toes is what usually causes Morton's neuroma. The area between your third and fourth toes is the one typically affected. Things like irritation, pressure or injury can lead to development of Morton's neuroma. This condition affects the ball of the foot and can be accompanied by sharp pain or a sensation similar to standing on a foreign object like a twig or a rock.more...

Ankle fracture

Fractures in the ankle can range from severe breaks of the fibula, tibia, or both to the less serious avulsion injuries. Since no two ankle fractures are the same, each and every ankle fracture must be diagnosed and treated individually. more...

Ulcers and diabetes

Diabetic patients are prone to foot ulcerations because of both vascular and neurologic complications. Peripheral arterial occlusive disease, structural foot deformity, and diabetic neuropathy are typical risk factors for formation of foot ulcers. It is also important to note that diabetic ulcers are the most common foot injury which can lead to amputation.more...

Hammer toe

This is a deformity of the toe, in which the tip of the toe is bent in the downward direction. This condition can affect 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th (small) toe, but most often affects the 2nd toe. Hammertoe can have several causes. Hammer toe may be inherited, result from an earlier trauma to the toe, or be caused by muscle/tendon imbalance.Hammertoes are progressive, and will usually get worse with time. more...

Claw foot or toes

When a patient has claw foot, toes curve up at the joints closest to the foot and sometimes at the middle joints the toes will bend in the downward direction. Claw foot can develop because of other disorders or can be congenital. Higher risk individuals include those with health problems such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or psoriasis. more...
