Some Conditions

Bunions or hallux valgus are an extremely common condition. Typically, the big toe will deviate towards the lesser toes and a prominence over the inner side of the big toe develops. As the deformity progresses, the forefoot (front part of the foot) gets broader. This broadening combined with the protruding bunion makes shoewear painful and causes pain and redness over the bunion. Over time, as the big toe starts to encroach into the territory of the 2nd and 3rd toes, these toes can start developing hammer toe and claw toe deformities. This can result in pain over the top of the 2nd and 3rd toe, or in some cases overload and a painful callosity over the sole underneath the 2nd or 3rd toes. See media…

Arthritis in the foot joints can occur at the hindfoot (subtalar, talonavicular, calcaneocuboid, Chopart joints) or at the midfoot (tarsometatarsal joint). The arthritis can be primary (develops on its own without an obvious cause) or secondary. Secondary causes are more frequent and can be due to prior trauma/fracture, rheumatoid arthritis, posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD), gout, inflammatory arthritis to name a few. When arthritis sets in, it results in a painful stiff foot and walking can be difficult, particularly on uneven surfaces or for prolonged periods of time. Different braces and orthotics can be used to alleviate symptoms though when arthritis is advanced it would be useful to discuss your reconstructive options with a foot and ankle orthopaedic surgeon.

An ankle sprain is a very common injury in any sport or in daily life. Most of the time, a sprain would involve a minor injury to the lateral ligaments. This would involve the anterior talofibular ligament (ATFL) and/or the calcaneofibular ligaments (CFL). Treatment for minor and major ankle injuries In minor sprains, return to activity can be quick and recovery uncomplicated. RICE treatment (Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation) can be useful to reduce swelling and pain during recovery. More serious injuries can involve either a partial or full lateral ligament tear. In these situations, recovery may be prolonged and complications can develop. It is useful to consult a foot and ankle or orthopaedic/sports doctor as well as a physiotherapist during rehabilitation and recovery. Read…
