List of Conditions Treated:
The term flat feet or flatfeet refers to a condition that occurs when the arches of the feet are not curved, but instead are flat, allowing the entire foot to touch the floor when standing up. Many people with fallen arches have no symptoms, but some may experience pain in their feet and even their back.
Bunions are bony lumps that project from the base of the big toe, right where it joins with the foot. As the bunion grows, it pushes the big toe out of its normal position, creating a lump that rubs against shoes and causes pain, especially when walking. Calluses and Blisters can commonly form into Bunions.
Corns are hard or “horny” areas of dead skin that form as a result of continual friction, usually from shoes that are too tight or constricting or otherwise do not fit properly. As friction increases, the skin forms a hard barrier to protect the structures underneath.
Heels withstand a substantial amount of the pressure when we walk and stand, and pain in the heel region can occur for any number of reasons. Some of the most common include arthritis, heel bursitis, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis, a condition that occurs when the strong band of fibrous tissue that helps support the arch becomes inflamed and irritated.
Ankle Sprain or Foot Sprain
A sprain is an injury to a ligament, the strong bands of connective tissue that attach one bone to another. Sprains can occur when a ligament is overstretched, twisted or bruised. This can be very painful.
Foot and Ankle Fracture
Some fractures are clear such as landing on the ground from a great height or direct trauma to the foot or ankle. A fracture is a small crack in a bone, or severe bruising within a bone. Most stress fractures are caused by overuse and repetitive activity, and are common in runners and athletes who participate in running sports, such as soccer and basketball. Some fractures are clear such as landing on the ground from a great height or trauma to the foot.
