Common toe problems, including bunions, tailor's bunion (or bunionette), hammertoes, and hallux limitus, can be caused by abnormal foot anatomy and function as well as too-small footwear.
The proximal phalanx is the phalanx (toe bone) closest to the leg. The image shows a diagram of where these bones lie in the foot—the midpoint of the proximal phalanges being where to the toes branch off from the main body of the foot.
First metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis/fusion: a systematic review of modern fixation techniques
First metatarsophalangeal joint arthrodesis is commonly performed for symptomatic end-stage hallux rigidus. It has been postulated to produce good results in the literature. Various fixation techniques offer differences in union rates, complications and functional outcomes, stirring debates about which produces the best outcomes for patients. Therefore, this review aims to synthesise and compare the outcomes of modern fixation techniques used for first metatarsophalangeal joint (FMPJ) arthrodesis.
The medial malleolus is the bony bump on the inner side of the ankle. Fractures of the medial malleolus are relatively uncommon and usually occur as part of a more complex pattern of ankle fractures.
Ankle sprains occur when the ligaments that connect bone to bone are stretched too far, causing inflammation and sometimes tears. These injuries most commonly affect the ligaments on the outside of the ankle when a person's foot rolls too far inward
Many patients who undergo surgery to correct a collapsing foot share the question: Will I be able to get back to doing the things I love?
"March Madness" is arguably one of the most anticipated athletic events of the year. Amid all the excitement and "madness" that will be part of this sporting extravaganza, injuries are bound to occur and can play a decisive factor in determining which team will win the coveted championship. In our desire to emulate our heroes on the basketball court, let's ensure we do not suffer similar injures.
Simple muscle-building cannot address total fitness and any exercise regimen is incomplete without a cardiovascular workout. Almost anyone can incorporate cardio into their routine.
