Common Foot & Ankle Conditions and Problems
Heel pain and tenderness are key symptoms.
Ankle disorders can result from damage to the bone, muscle, or soft tissue.
Ankle Post-Traumatic Disorders
After sustaining a trauma/injury involving a fracture or ligament injury causing wearing out of a joint.
Complex foot deformity is a multiplanar deformity with or without foot shortening. It also includes deformed feet with poor soft-tissue coverage, relapsed or neglected cases, and those with accompanying problems such as leg-length discrepancy, lower leg deformity, osteomyelitis, and nonunions.
A condition characterized by the breakdown and eventual loss of cartilage in one or more joints.
One or more of the bones that make up the ankle joint are broken.
A common musculoskeletal injury in which the ligaments of the ankle partially or completely tear due to sudden stretching. This typically occurs when the ankle is suddenly “twisted” in a sports activity or by stepping off an uneven surface.
Ankle Sprain and Achilles Tendon Sprain or Rupture
Is a complete or partial tear that occurs when the tendon is stretched beyond its capacity. Forceful jumping or pivoting, or sudden accelerations of running, can overstretch the tendon and cause a tear. An injury to the tendon can also result from falling or tripping.
Is a fungal infection that usually begins between the toes. It occurs most commonly in people whose feet have become very sweaty while confined within tight-fitting shoes.
A bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. A bunion forms when your big toe pushes against your next toe, forcing the joint of your big toe to get bigger and stick out. The skin over the bunion might be red and sore.
Is a condition caused as a result of inflammation of the fifth metatarsal bone at the base of the little toe.
Club foot or clubfoot, also called congenital talipes equinovarus (CTEV), is a congenital deformity involving one foot or both. The affected foot appears to have been rotated internally at the ankle
Diabetic (Charcot) Foot
Is a condition causing weakening of the bones in the foot that can occur in people who have significant nerve damage (neuropathy). The bones are weakened enough to fracture, and with continued walking the foot eventually changes shape.
Flatfoot (Pediatric + Adult)
Is a postural deformity in which the arches of the foot collapse, with the entire sole of the foot coming into complete or near-complete contact with the ground.
Is a break in any of the bones in the foot
A common and serious problem in persons with diabetes. Diabetic foot infections (DFIs) typically begin in a wound, most often a neuropathic ulceration. While all wounds are colonized with. microorganisms, the presence of infection is defined by ≥2 classic findings of inflammation or purulence.
A tear of ligaments, the tough bands of fibrous tissue that connect bones to one another inside a joint.
A toe that is bent permanently downward, typically as a result of pressure from footwear.
Is a common condition in which weight bearing on the heel causes extreme discomfort.
Is a small osteophyte (bone spur) located on the calcaneus (heel bone). Calcaneal spurs are typically detected by a radiological examination (X-ray). When a foot bone is exposed to constant stress, calcium deposits build up on the bottom of the heel bone.
A common condition in which the corner or side of a toenail grows into the soft flesh. The result is pain, redness, swelling and, sometimes, an infection.
Can be discomfort, pain or inflammation arising from any part of a joint — including cartilage, bone, ligaments, tendons or muscles. Most commonly, however, joint pain refers to arthritis or arthralgia, which is inflammation or pain from within the joint itself.
Pediatric Foot Disease
Is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves pain and inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.
Ulcer of Foot
Can be a shallow red crater that involves only the surface skin. A foot ulcer also can be very deep. A deep foot ulcer may be a crater that extends through the full thickness of the skin. It may involve tendons, bones and other deep structures.
