Foot and Ankle Conditions

The complex structure of the foot includes dozens of bones and joints with help from a network of muscles, ligaments, and tendons. The ankle is another hinge joint that connects the foot to the tibia and fibula. The foot and ankle collectively support the entire weight of the body and also allow you to perform movements like walking or running.

Injuries to the foot and ankle can occur from overuse, age or trauma and treatment methods often range from noninvasive options such as bracing or physical therapy to total ankle replacements when necessary.
