Foot and ankle problems are very common. More than 11 million visits are made to physicians’ offices each year because of foot, toe, and ankle problems. Your feet are the bones, joints, and tendons that help you get around in your everyday life.
Walking and running puts up to 1.5 times your bodyweight on your foot. The human foot cushions up to one million pounds of pressure during one hour of strenuous exercise. Athletes commonly suffer from foot and ankle issues, but no one is immune from these injuries.
At Specialty Orthopaedics, we are proud to specialize in identifying and treating the following injuries and conditions in the foot, ankle, and lower extremities:
- Ankle sprains & strains
