Common Foot And Ankle Problems
Here are some common foot and ankle conditions that can be treated at The Physio Studio:
Bunion is a condition that causes a bony bump at the side of your big toe. With bunions, your big toe is tilted toward the second toe. This is a bone abnormality and may progress with time. People with an abnormal bone structure, flat feet, and excessively flexible ligaments are at risk of bunions. Bunions are initially painless, but with time they may become worse and you may feel pain and discomfort.
2. Ankle Sprain
A sprained ankle is a condition in which ligaments in the ankle (that hold your ankle together) are stretched beyond their capacity. It can happen when you roll, turn, or twist your ankle awkwardly likely from a fall or impact.
3. Foot And Ankle Arthritis
Arthritis is a condition in which joints swell and become tender. In foot and ankle arthritis, the cartilage in the ankle joint that works as a shock absorber degenerates and damages. You may feel pain in your ankle while walking or with weight bearing activities. Joint stiffness is a also a common symptom usually felt after a long rest.
4. Foot And Ankle Fracture
The term "fracture" refers to when a bone is broken due to trauma. Foot and ankle fractures occur when the fracture is in any foot or ankle bone. It can be a minor hairline fracture or an open fracture.
5. Foot And Ankle Deformities
Foot and ankle deformity is the abnormal alignment of your foot and ankle's bones and muscles. The condition can be congenital (inherited at birth) or acquired (due to an accident or trauma). Ankle and foot deformities can cause pain and discomfort when walking.
6. Ankle Cartilage Injury
Ankle cartilage acts as a lubricant and shock absorber for the moving ankle joint. The condition occurs when the underlying bone is affected due to trauma or a fall. If you feel a never-ending pain after a significant ankle sprain, you may be suffering from an ankle cartilage injury.
7. Achilles Tendon Injury
The Achilles tendon is a strong muscle and fibrous cord at the back of your lower leg. It connects your calf to the heel and helps in walking, running, and jumping. Any damage to the Achilles tendon is referred to as an Achilles tendon injury.
8. Hammer Toe, Mallet Toe, Claw Toe
Hammer toe, mallet toe, and claw toe are foot or toe deformities. It can occur due to an imbalance in muscles, tendons, or ligaments. You can develop toe deformities because of an injury, infection, arthritis, or the type of shoes you wear.
