Patient Education
 

 

Did you know the foot has 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles, and numerous tendons? These parts all work together to allow the foot to move in a variety of ways while balancing your weight and propelling you forward or backward on even or uneven surfaces.

Our staff believes that informed patients are better equipped to make decisions regarding their health and well being. For your personal use, we have created a patient library covering an array of educational topics. Browse through these conditions to learn more about topics of interest to you.

Foot pain can result from a multitude of causes including disease, injury, and poorly fitting shoes. In this section, you will find information on some of the more common foot and ankle conditions, as well as possible treatment options. If symptoms persist, contact us and schedule an appointment with one of our podiatrists today.
