Foot & Ankle
Achilles tendinitis is a common condition that occurs when the Achilles tendon, the largest tendon in the body which runs down the back of the lower leg, becomes irritated and inflamed. It connects the calf muscles to the heel bone and is used when you walk, run, climb stairs, jump, and stand on your tip toes. Although the Achilles tendon can withstand great stresses from running and jumping, it is also prone to tendinitis, a condition associated with overuse.
Morton's neuroma is a thickening of the tissue that surrounds the digital nerve leading to the toes. This thickening can lead to various levels of pain or discomfort in the forefoot that may limit your ability to perform certain activities.
Lisfranc injuries occur when any of the bones or ligaments in the Lisfranc joint break or tear. A Lisfranc or midfoot injury typically results from a sudden trauma and treatment depends on the type and severity of the damage. Lisfranc surgery is common for fractures, breaks, or dislocations.
