Foot & Ankle Conditions

Foot and ankle conditions are common—unfortunately. We take thousands of steps each day and we can thank the hundreds of bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles in our feet and ankles for working together to get us where we need to go. When an injury or condition disturbs the normal functioning of any of these joints, it can result in pain, muscle weakness and limited mobility. Foot and ankle conditions can affect people of all ages.
