  • Foot and ankle trauma refers to injuries that most commonly occur during sports, exercise or any other physical activity.

  • The Achilles tendon is a strong fibrous cord present behind the ankle that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. It is used when you walk, run and jump.

  • Trauma and repeated stress can cause fractures in the foot. Extreme force is required to fracture the bones in the hindfoot.

  • It is a surgical procedure performed to relieve pain and immobility due to severe end-stage arthritis that has not responded to non-surgical treatments.

  • A stiff big toe, also called hallux rigidus, is a form of degenerative arthritis affecting the joint where the big toe (hallux) attaches to the foot.

  • Ligaments are made up of elastic tissues that interconnect bones to one another. They bind the joint together, providing stability and support to the joint.

  • Ankle instability surgery is performed to treat an unstable ankle and involves the repair or replacement of a torn or stretched ligament.

  • A sprain is the stretching or tearing of a ligament. Ligaments connect adjacent bones in a joint and provide stability to the joint.
