Skin and Nail Disorders

Athlete’s Foot and Fungal Nails are a commonly diagnosed condition. Although often persistent, fungal infections can be treated with a high rate of success. Other common skin and nail conditions include plantar warts, corns, and blisters.

Musculoskeletal Disorders
Musculoskeletal disorders may be a result of an accident, overuse, or may be structural in nature. Common problems include tendonitis, sprained ankles, fractures, flatfoot, and even arthritis.

Neurovascular Disorders
Neurovascular disorders involve either nerves or blood vessels in the foot. One commonly diagnosed condition is Morton’s Neuroma (often just referred to as a neuroma) in which a nerve passing between two toes gets “squeezed” and causes numbness or a sensation of tingling or pain in the toes. Ulcers on the feet caused by poor circulation may be of particular concern in diabetic patients. ·

Congenital and Acquired Deformities
The most well-known of these deformities are bunions and hammertoes. Other conditions include tailor’s bunions or bunionettes, flat foot, club foot, intoeing or pigeon-toes, and webbed feet. Even the most benign-looking conditions should be evaluated to detect any underlying problems. Early intervention and treatment is often key to successful recovery. ·

Trauma and Injuries
Injuries come in many shapes and sizes, and may be classified in one or more of the above categories. Physical Therapy, isolation, or surgical intervention may be needed to prevent injuries from becoming recurring or chronic conditions.
