Ankle sprain

Annually, roughly one million individuals in the United States visit a medical professional about ankle-related injury, according to the American Academy of Family Practice. And ankle sprains are the most common reason. The most typical location of sprains is the ankle joint. Ankles are often sprained when you force the joint out of its regular position, when you fall, when you suddenly twist your ankle too far, or when you walk or run on an uneven surface.more...

Ingrown toenail

To a podiatric physician an ingrown toenail is a familiar problem. It happens when the tip of the nail extends down and under/into the skin at the tip of the toe. You should see a specialist right away if you have poor blood circulation to your foot, an infection around the nail, diabetes, or nerve damage in the leg or foot. Don't try to treat this problem at home.more...

Corns

Foot corns are a common problem seen by foot doctors. Pathologically foot corns and calluses are similar, because they develop when the skin has thickened in response to pressure and irritation. Foot corns are a natural way for the body to protect itself against continuous pressure on the skin. Foot corns can become very painful if left untreated.more...

Claw foot or toes

This is a condition affecting the toes in which the toe joint closest to the foot is curved up and the other toe joints are curved downward. This causes the toe to look like a claw. Claw toes can be congenital or can develop because of other disorders. Higher risk patients include those with illnesses such as diabetes, psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis. more...

Gout

Gout results from the build-up of uric acid in the tissues or joint. Higher than normal levels of uric acid in the body can exist for several reasons. One possibility is that the body is creating too much of this substance. Inefficient removal of uric acid by your body may be an alternative cause. Foot gout is often accompanied by a tender, swollen, and red joint and frequently involves the large toe. more...

Hammer toe

This is a toe deformity, in which the end of the toe is curved in the downward direction. Although 2nd, 3rd, 4th, or 5th (small) toe can be affected by this condition, the second toe is usually the one that's affected. Hammertoe may have several causes. Hammer toe may be inherited, can be caused by an earlier trauma to the toe, or be caused by muscle/tendon imbalance.Hammer toes usually get worse with time and can be progressive. more...

Achilles tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis (also known as Achilles tendonitis or Achilles tendinopathy) is tendinitis of the Achilles tendon. Generally caused by overuse of the effected limb, this common foot problem is more common among non-professional athletes training under less than ideal conditions. more...

Mallet toe

There is a lot of similarity between a mallet toe and hammer toe. In hammer toe it is the middle joint that is bend, in mallet toe the affected joint is the upper joint. Shoes that are poorly fitted can also lead to development of both problems. Mallet toe and hammertoe can also be caused by high heels. Your ability to walk and to have free motion of your foot can be negatively affected if mallet toe or hammertoe are ignored.more...

Mortons neuroma

Thickening of tissue around the nerve that leads to the toes is what usually causes Morton's neuroma. This generally happens in the area between third and fourth toes. Morton's neuroma can develop as a result of injury, irritation or pressure. This condition affects the ball of the foot. It can be accompanied by severe pain or a sensation similar to standing on a foreign object like a twig or a rock.more...

Heel spur

Heel spurs are often associated with plantar fasciitis. A heel spur is a hook of bone that can form on the heel bone. This is also a point of attachment for plantar fascia. Without treatment heel spur can become very painful and impact ones ability to stay mobile. Finding what is causing the excessive stretching of the plantar fascia is the first key step for the effective treatment of the heel spur.more...

Diabetic ulcers

Diabetics are prone to foot ulcerations because of vascular and neurologic complications. Diabetic neuropathy, peripheral arterial occlusive disease and structural foot deformity are typical risk factors for ulcer formation. Diabetic ulcers are the most common foot problem that can lead to amputation.more...

Foot Ganglions

A foot ganglion is a fluid filled swelling often found on top of the foot or ankle. Foot ganglions caused by weakening and irritation of the joint lining can get bigger in size with time but are generally slow growing. Ganglion on the foot can be treated with a few approaches.more...

Foot ulcer

Foot ulcers are wounds that do not easily heal or keep coming back. Ulcers can be categorized as venous statis, arterial or neurotrophic. Diabetic ulcers are the most common foot problem which can lead to amputation. Individuals suffering from diabetes should pay special attention to foot ulcers and seek immediate medical assistance.more...

Nerve entrapment

Nerve entrapment can indirectly be caused by repeated microtrauma or acute trauma. Repetitive microtrauma can result from foot deformities, sports, or poorly fitted shoes. Injury to the nerve develops as a result of either compression from scar tissue or tissue growths extending pressure on the nerve. more...

Arthritis

Your foot can be affected by three types of arthritis. These include post-traumatic arthritis, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. However there are many treatment options available. It is important to seek help early so that treatment can begin sooner rather than later. more...

Diabetes

Callus

Calluses are hardened, thick patches of skin which develop when the skin attempts to protect itself against pressure or friction. If you are diabetic or have a condition that causes inadequate circulation to your feet, you have higher risk of complications arising from calluses.more...
