More than 3 million Americans suffer from this injury each year. Ankle sprains happen when ligaments in the ankle are overly stretched or torn. Medical attention is necessary to rule out a fracture and assess the full extent of the injury.
A bunion is a bone deformity usually at the base of the big toe. It’s a progressive condition made worse by pressure from tight or ill fitting shoes. Bunions can be very painful and, in some instances, may require surgical repair.
Flat feet is a condition where the entire, or nearly entire, bottoms of your feet meet the ground when standing. Symptoms can range from severe pain to no pain at all depending on the severity of the condition.
Diabetic Foot Care
Diabetes is a systemic illness that can affect many parts of the body especially your feet. Proper foot screening is essential for any diabetic patient. Any cut or sore on a diabetic foot must be taken seriously.
Corns and Calluses
Corns and calluses are hard, built up layers of skin usually caused by friction. They generally appear on areas of the foot that bear weight or rub against your shoe. “Soft corns” are typically found between the toes.
A hammertoe is when your second, third, and/or fourth toe stays bent or curled at the middle joint. They can occur due to weakened muscles and tendons from wearing poorly fitted shoes or can be genetically inherited.
Heel spurs are bony protrusions on the heel bone. They can be confused with plantar fasciitis which is inflammation of the band of ligaments that run along your sole. Both conditions can make walking painful and difficult especially first thing in the morning.
Athlete’s foot causes red, scaly, itchy skin particularly between the toes. Fortunately, this worldwide condition can be treated and cured. Keeping your feet clean and dry is the best way to avoid catching this very common fungal infection.
