Common Foot And Ankle Injuries And Diseases
Achilles Tendonitis
  • Achilles Tendonitis is the inflammation of the
    tendon and may include small tears to the tendon.
  • If left untreated, the condition can degenerate
    the tendon and lead to rupture of the tendon

Arthritis of the Foot and Ankle
  • Arthritis is a condition in which the cartilage,
    which cushions and protects the ends of the
    bones, begins to deteriorate.
  • There are a variety of treatments that can
    relieve the pain and allow you to remain active.

  • Bunions often appear as bumps or an enlarged
    growth on the side of your big toe. Over time the
    growth can enlarge and cause additional pain and

Diabetic Foot

    your entire foot to lay flat when standing.

    pressure on the toes when wearing shoes, causing
    problems to develop.
  • Treatment options vary based on the severity of
    the hammertoes.

    conditions or injuries, how you commonly use your
    feet at work or in sports, your genetics, body

    fasciitis, tendonitis, arthritis, calluses,
