Most people who have had major foot surgery are able to return to the activities they enjoy, but it may take a long time, new research suggests.
A plantar fibroma is a small growth on the arch of your foot. It grows from the plantar fascia, which is the ligament that runs along the bottom of your foot, between your heels and toes.
Muscle cramps are sustained, painful, involuntary contractions of muscles. While muscle spasms and cramps can occur in various parts of the body, they are most common in the muscles of the legs and feet.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects many joints throughout the body, including the feet. RA is an autoimmune disease; it develops when your immune system mistakenly attacks its own tissues.
A ruptured Achilles tendon can reduce a weekend warrior to a limping one. And there's no single right way to treat it. People who've suffered this common injury may fare just as well with physical therapy as with surgery, a new clinical trial shows.
The arch of the foot is an area along the bottom of the foot between the ball and the heel. Pain in the arch of the foot is a common problem, especially among athletes.
First metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis/fusion: a systematic review of modern fixation techniques
First metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis is commonly performed for symptomatic end-stage hallux rigidus. It has been postulated to produce good results in the literature. Various fixation techniques offer differences in union rates, complications and functional outcomes, stirring debates about which produces the best outcomes for patients. Therefore, this review aims to synthesise and compare the outcomes of modern fixation techniques used for first metatarsophalangeal joint (FMPJ) arthrodesis.
Here's a brief overview of the structures of the foot and how they work together, plus a look at some common podiatric problems that sometimes result from normal wear and tear, overuse, or injury to the foot.
Psoriatic arthritis is an inflammatory disease that causes pain and swelling in the joints. Most people with the disease also have psoriasis, a skin condition that causes red, scaly, inflamed rashes. People dealing with psoriatic arthritis may experience lots of problems below the ankles — including foot pain, heel pain, swelling and toenail changes.
Comparison of Outcomes Between Suture Button Technique and Screw Fixation Technique in Patients With Acute Syndesmotic Diastasis: A Meta-analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
Our aim was to compare the outcome between suture button (SB) stabilization and syndesmotic screw fixation (SF) in patients with acute syndesmotic diastasis.
