General Procedures

  • Diabetic Foot Care : Diabetes can be dangerous to your feet-even a small cut could have serious consequences. Diabetes may cause nerve damage that takes away the feeling in your feet.
  • Bunion : Even though bunions are a common foot deformity, there are misconceptions about them.
  • Hammertoes : Hammertoe is a contracture- or bending-of one or both joints of the second, third, fourth, or fifth (little) toes.
  • Gout : Gout is a disorder that results from the build-up of uric acid in the tissues or a joint-most often the joint of the big toe.
  • Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction : Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) is an inflammation and/or overstretching of the posterior tibial tendon in the foot. An important function of the posterior tibial tendon is to help support the arch.
  • Tailor’s Bunion : Tailor’s bunion, also called a bunionette, is an enlargement of the fifth metatarsal bone at the base of the little toe.
  • Flexible Flatfoot : Flatfoot is often a complex disorder, with diverse symptoms and varying degrees of deformity and disability.
  • Fractures : The structure of your foot is complex, consisting of bones,muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues.
  • Heel Pain : Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis-a condition that is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present.
  • Morton’s Neuroma : A neuroma is a thickening of nerve tissue that may develop in various parts of the body.

Children

  • Pediatric Heel Pain : Heel pain is a common childhood complaint. That doesn’t mean, however, that it should be ignored, or that parents should wait to see if it will “go away.”
  • Pediatric Flatfoot : Flatfoot is common in both children and adults. When this deformity occurs in children, it is referred to as “pediatric flatfoot”.

Sports/Injuries

  • Ankle Sprains : An ankle sprain is an injury to one or more ligaments in the ankle, usually on the outside of the ankle.
  • Chronic Ankle Instability : Chronic ankle instability is a condition characterized by a recurring “giving way” of the outer (lateral) side of the ankle.

Skin Disorders

  • Ingrown Toenails : When a toenail is ingrown, the nail is curved downward and grows into the skin, usually at the nail borders (the sides of the nail).
  • Plantar Wart : A wart is a small growth on the skin that develops when the skin is infected by a virus. Warts can develop anywhere on the foot, but typically they appear on the bottom (plantar side) of the foot.
