  • Calcaneal and Heel Spur

    A Calcaneal Spur (Heel Spur) is a pointed bony outgrowth off the bone of the heel. These spurs are caused by damage to the bone over many years which causes chronic local inflammation at the insertion of soft tissue tendons or fascia in the area.

  • Achilles Tear & Tendinitis and Retrocalcaneal Bursitis

    Repetitive overuse of the Achilles Tendon causes microscopic tearing and inflammation within the tendon. This inflammation and tearing of the tendon is called Achilles Tendinitis/ Tear.

  • Plantar Fasciitis

    The Plantar Fascia originates at the calcaneus (heel bone) and fans out toward the toes helping to maintain the arch of the foot. Plantar Fasciitis is caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch.

  • Mortons Neuroma, Intertarsal Neuralgia & Metatarsalgia

    Mortons Neuroma is described as the compression of the nerve between the 3rd and 4th metatarsals as a result of scar tissue and excessive movement in the forefoot.

  • Hallux Injuries

    Hallux injuries are referred to as a group of injuries or deformities which affect the big toe. The most common causes are excessive foot pronation, poorly fitted shoes/high heel shoes or any trauma to the hallux.

  • Foot Pronation

    Foot Pronation (Flat Feet) is the rolling in of the feet due to the the collapse of the arches. The excessive degree of rolling in of the feet causes increased stress on the tendons and ligaments in the foot and ankle.

  • Severs Disease

    Severs Disease is an injury to the growth plate found at the back of the heel. This condition occurs in children because their growth plates haven’t completely fused to the bulk of the bone.

  • Inversion Sprain & Eversion Sprain

    The ankle may sustain an Inversion or Eversion Sprain as a result of rapidly changing directions, running or walking on an uneven surface, or treading on a ball or opponents foot.
