The Most Common Painful Foot Conditions
Custom Foot Orthotics are used to treat Painful Foot Conditions.
The Most Common Painful Foot Conditions Are As Follows:
Also known as patellofemoral pain syndrome, chondomalacia patella is a painful, degenerative cartilage condition that rubs against the medial femoral condyle.
Plantar Fasciitis is a condition wherein the plantar fascia is pulling on the periosteum at the calcaneus therefore causing inflammation and pain. Commonly an incorrect catch-all diagnosis.
Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction
Failure of the Posterior Tibial Tendon due to trauma or poor blood supply, causing elongation of the tendon and subsequent collapse of the medial arch of the foot. Often misdiagnosed as Plantar Fasciitis.
Achilles tendonitis is a condition wherein the Achilles tendon, at or near its insertion to the posterior aspect of the calcaneus, becomes inflamed and causes pain.
A bunion is a medial deviation and inflammation of the metatarsophalangeal (MTP) joint of the big toe. Due to faulty foot mechanics and genetics. Early intervention encouraged.
Hammer toe is a condition wherein there is contracture of the proximal interphalangeal joint (usually in the second toe, but sometimes the third toe).
A shin splint is a condition wherein the periosteum of the tibia is damaged when it is pulled away by an overstressed tibialis posterior muscle.
A corn is an area of thickened skin tissue on the top of the toes or in between the toes due to irritation and friction from a bony prominence. Foot care nursing removes these.
A callus is an area of thickened skin tissue on the bottom of the foot due to irritation. Foot care nursing removes these.
Morton’s neuroma is characterized by pain located in the third –fourth nterspace of the metatarsal heads. A very common condition causing pain on mobility
Ilio Tibial Band Syndrome
lio tibial band “friction syndrome” is a condition wherein the ilio tibial band is stretched and torqued and the distal end rubs across the lateral condyle of the femur.
Dropped Metatarsal Head
A dropped metatarsal head is a condition where one of the metatarsal bones is lower than the others at the distal end.
Simply put, it’s generalized pain underneath the metatarsals or “balls” of the foot.
