  • Ankle Arthritis is a progressive disease caused by an acute trauma, something degenerative, overuse or genetics, like Rheumatoid arthritis. This leads to a decreased range of motion and more cartilage breakdown.

  • Ankle Sprains are the most common foot and ankle injury, usually caused by the twisting of the ankle. If under-treated it often leads to further injury or chronic ankle instability.

  • The bursa sac can become irritated and inflamed due to excessive repetitive joint motion, injury, a bone deformity, or an underlying medical condition.

  • Also known as Sever’s disease, this occurs during puberty when the heel bone grows a lot faster than the leg muscles and tendons.

  • Cuboid syndrome does not often heal on its own without intervention and, if left untreated, can lead to chronic pain and long-term issues with foot function.

  • Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain) is when the plantar fascia (the thick band of tissue on the bottom of your foot) is swollen or inflamed and can be very painful.

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

  • Sesamoids are two bones on the ball of the foot behind the big toe joint. Sesamoiditis is when they become injured, then pain, inflammation, and bone damage occurs.

  • Turf toe is a sprain or hyperextension of the toe. The toes, especially the big toe, are bending firmly against the ground while the foot falls forward.
