Learn about some of the most common foot and ankle conditions we treat.


Arthritis is a condition that involves inflammation and stiffness in the joints. Symptoms can range from nearly unnoticeable to incredibly painful. Some people lose functionality in their feet or ankles, depending on the severity of their condition.

Broken bones and dislocations

Broken or dislocated bones can happen from falls, sports or vehicle accidents, heavy items landing on the foot or ankle, and a variety of other reasons. However these injuries happen, they can be incredibly painful and lead to long-term complications if they aren’t properly treated.


A bunion is painful swelling that affects your big toe. Bunions can make it painful to walk and wear shoes, but treatments are available.


Calluses are hardened patches of dead skin cells that typically develop on the ball or heel of the foot. Calluses can develop from wearing poorly fitting shoes and walking on hard surfaces. Treatment for calluses involves relieving pressure on the skin, usually by modifying your shoes.

Flat feet

Flat feet (also known as pes planus) is a common condition in which the foot has no arch. Some people are born with flat feet while others acquire it over time because of muscle or nerve conditions. Treatment is available for this sometimes painful condition.

Foot conditions

Foot conditions can be congenital (something you are born with) or as a result of injury or improper foot care. Treatments are available for many types of foot deformities.

Heel conditions

We can help alleviate painful heel conditions with personalized treatment options.

Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a bane to runners and other athletes, but it can affect anyone. This painful condition involves tightening of the plantar fascia, a ligament that connects your heel bone with your toe bones. It can be incredibly painful, but treatment is available.

Toe conditions

The toes provide stability and help with balance. When a toe condition strikes, walking, running, and standing becomes more difficult. There are many types of toe conditions, and treatment options are available to alleviate pain.
