Let’s face it: Our feet take a beating. Sometimes, it seems like an endless march toward aches and pain. Seventy-five percent of Americans experience foot problems during their lifetimes.
Aside from general wear and tear, problems with the feet, ankles and lower leg can be caused by birth defects, heredity, trauma, arthritis, physical stress, muscle and joint imbalances or even ill-fitting shoes. And how do your feet feel after several hours standing, walking or running on an ultra-hard surface, day after day?
Our orthopedic surgeons perform procedures that get to the source of the problem, relieving pain and restoring normal function to your foot. Remember, the human foot has 26 bones, 33 joints and 100-plus tendons, muscles and ligaments. Only a specialist knows when this delicate balance can no longer withstand the daily grind without corrective action.
