Ankle Sprains
A sprained ankle is where one or more of the ligaments of the ankle is torn or partially torn. Sprained ankles can occur even during normal daily activities. Returning to activity before the ligaments have fully healed may cause them to heal in a stretched position, resulting in less stability at the ankle joint. If not properly treated, ankle sprains can develop into long-term problems.

A bunion is a deformity characterized by a misaligned big toe joint that can become swollen and tender and can shift the big toe toward the other toes. If untreated, bunion deformity can become severe enough that it develops into a mechanical-function problem of the forefoot. It is important to never ignore bunions as they are easier to treat if addressed early.

Diabetic Foot Care
People with diabetes are more vulnerable to foot problems because diabetes can damage nerves and reduce blood flow to the feet. One in five people with diabetes who seek hospital care do so for foot problems. By taking proper care of your feet, many serious health problems associated with diabetes can be prevented.

Hammertoe is a deformity of the second, third, fourth, or fifth toes. With this condition, the toe is bent at the middle joint, resembling a hammer. If treated early it is easy to correct, left untreated hammertoes can become inflexible and require surgery.

Heel Spurs
“Heel spurs” are caused when the ligament on the bottom of the foot becomes stressed and pulls on the heel causing the ligament to become inflamed(plantar fasciitis) which injures the heel bone. As the bone tries to mend itself, a bone spur can form on the bottom of the heel. Heel spurs are best treated early on without surgery.
