Sports Injuries are a common cause of foot and ankle injuries due to the inherent risks involved with high performance activities.
Peripheral Arterial Disease is another way of describing poor circulation whereby blood containing ample amounts of oxygen cannot reach the feet.
Soft tissue masses on the feet and ankles can be routine or dangerous. Generally, the removal of them stops the problem before it starts.
Reconstructive foot surgery may sound serious, but it also provides lasting pain relief and quality of life from injuries, defects, infections, or improper footwear.
Calluses form because people spend hours on their feet on a daily basis. They appear as little bumps on your feet due to discarded dead skin cells that are formed by friction.
Bunions are bumps located on the side of the big toe that actually alter the structure of the front part of the foot with regards to how the bones are set.
Fungal Toenails or “toenail fungus” is often a very nasty surprise. Toes are made brittle, have an odor and more often develop infections due to this condition.
Neuromas sound foreign, but they can hit close to home as they can produce serious problems in feet. They happen because the outside part of a nerve in your foot eventually numbs.
Proper support for your feet can make a lasting difference. Without it, it can be very easy to sustain sports related injuries. Fortunately, foot orthotics can help prevent severe conditions and correct unequal weight distribution spread across the feet!
