  • The Achilles tendon is used in almost every activity that involves moving your foot. When the Achilles is injured, it can be very painfu and end you mobility,

  • The posterior tibal tendon takes a beating supporting the foot and arch while walking. It can sometimes be too much, resulting in this tendon's dysfunction.

  • Two Peroneal Tendons are behind the outside ankle and stabilize the joint outward. These weaker muscles and tendons are prone to injury from ankle turns and rolls.

    Dr. Franson has seen my entire family for foot/ankle problems, and treated and solved all of them. The office staff is incredible. I highly recommend this doctor.
