Ankle sprain

Approximately one million individuals see a physician about injury to the ankle. The most typical site of sprains is the ankle.

Mallet toes

Mallet toe and hammer toe are very similar. Middle joint is the one that's affected in a hammertoe. In mallet toe the bent joint is the upper joint. Foot wear that is too tight can also produce both problems. Mallet toe and hammertoe can also develop from wearing high heels. When not properly treated hammertoe or mallet toe can potentially cause you to develop persistent discomfort which affects your ability to walk and can limit motion of the foot.more...

Ankle fracture

A fractured ankle can be a simple break in one bone, which may not prevent you from walking, or it can be caused by several fractures, which can force your ankle out of place and can require for you to avoid pressure on the ankle for several months. Since no two ankle fractures are the same, every ankle fracture should be treated individually. more...

Morton's neuroma

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

Heel spur

Often associated with plantar fasciitis, a heel spur is a bony protrusion that may develop on the calcaneus (heel bone). This is also an attachment point for plantar fascia. Without treatment heel spur can potentially become very painful and affect ones ability to walk.

Corns

Foot corns are a common problem seen by podiatrists. Pathologically foot corns and calluses are similar, because both form when the skin becomes thicker in response to pressure.

Claw toes

Claw foot is a deformity of toes. When this problem occurs the toe resembles a claw, because the toe joint closest to the foot is curved up while the other toe joints are curved downward.

Higher risk patients include those with health problems like psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes. more...
