in this video Dr. Baravarian discusses plantar plate injuries, their causes, the symptoms and the treatment options at University Foot and Ankle Institute
The plantar plate is a strong ligament on the bottom of the foot that attaches your toes to the long bones at the base your toes. This ligament keeps the toes in place and stops them from over-extending or drifting.
Successful treatment of plantar plate injuries starts with an accurate diagnosis as they often present like other injuries. At UFAI we've successfully treated thousands of misdiagnosed patients who needlessly suffered for years.
