We Treat a Variety of Foot & Ankle Conditions


There may be a distinct possibility that your back and knee pain are due to your gait, or the way you walk. We perform a full assessment of your gait and your footwear to determine whether your foot structure and gait biomechanics are the cause of your discomfort.

Plantar Fasciitis

 

Plantar Fasciitis: Pain directly beneath or in front of the heel; chronic inflammation of the fascia as a result of excessive pronation.

Bunions

 

Bunions: a (sometimes painful) bump at the medial base of the great toe. Excessive pronation and hypermobility of first metatarsal ray causes toe-off to come off the medial (inside) side instead of the plantar surface of the great toe.

Hammertoes

 

Hammertoes are painful bone contractures of the toes, usually with an associated area of hyperkeratosis or callous. They may be individual, or there may be hammertoes present on all eight lesser toes. The great toe can also develop a hammertoe.

Calluses

 

Calluses are thickened, dead tissue involving the outer layer of the skin (epidermis). Calluses are located on the soles of the feet, particularly the ‘balls,’ while corns are located on the toes.

Achilles Tendonitis

 

Achilles Tendonitis is inflammation of the sheath surrounding the Achilles tendon; pain behind the heel, ankle and lower calf.

Knee Pain

 

Knee pain – as with all cases of tendonitis, patellar tendonitis is simply the inflammation, degeneration or rupture of the patellar ligament and the tissue that surround it, leading to pain and discomfort in the area just below the knee cap.

Shin Splints

 

Shin Splints is the inflammation of the tendons and muscles in the front or on the medial side of the lower leg.

Morton’s Neuroma

 

Morton’s Neuroma is the inter-metatarsal forefoot pain located at the ball of the foot and/or toe numbness. Generally located between the 3rd and 4th metatarsal bones (third inner space).

IT Band Pain

 

This outside or lateral knee pain is caused by the IT Band pulling up on it’s insertion on the outside of the knee. Underneath the IT Band near it’s insertion at the knee is a bursa. When that ITB is pulled tight it put too much pressure on the bursa and that bursa reacted by becoming inflamed and swollen, giving you pain.

Metatarsalgia

 

One or more of the metatarsal heads become painful and/or inflamed, usually due to excessive pressure over a long period of time. It is common to experience acute, recurrent, or chronic pain with metatarsalgia.

Toe Nail Conditions

 

Toenail fungal infections are usually caused by the same type of fungi that cause athlete’s foot. Toenail fungus can affect anyone but becomes more prevalent with aging.

Athletes Foot

 

Tinea pedis is the medical term for athlete’s foot, one of the most well-known fungal foot conditions. Tinea pedis got its nickname because of its tendency to infect athletes, who often wear hot, sweaty athletic shoes that provide a good breeding ground for the fungus that causes the condition. In reality, athlete’s foot can affect anyone, young or old, regardless of shoe style.

Varicose/Spider Veins

 

Varicose veins are simply enlarged veins and spider veins are a smaller version of the same condition, though their appearance is different.
