Bunion (Hallux Valgus)

Clubfoot describes a range of foot abnormalities usually present at birth in which your baby’s foot is twisted out of shape or position. In clubfoot, the tissues connecting the muscles to the bone are shorter than usual.
An overlapping toe condition occurs when one of your toes, usually the big toe or pinky toe, extends over the adjacent toe. A similar condition, called an underlapping toe, develops when your toe extends under the adjacent toe.
Heel Pain (Plantar Fascitis)
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting.
Achilles Tendon Disorders
The Achilles tendon is a band of tissue that connects a muscle to a bone. It runs down the back of the lower leg and connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. Also called the heel cord, the Achilles tendon facilitates walking by helping to raise the heel.

A Jones fracture is a break between the base and shaft of the fifth metatarsal bone of your foot. This is the bone on the outside of the foot, which is connected to your smallest toe, sometimes called the pinkie toe. It’s the most common type of metatarsal fracture.
A Lisfranc fracture is an injury affecting the middle foot. It is made up of the bones and ligaments that connect the metatarsals to the midfoot. The bones in the complex give the foot its arch. The bones are held in place by ligaments that stretch both across and down the foot.
Tarsal coalition describes the complete or partial union between two or more bones in the midfoot and hindfoot. Tarsal coalition refers to developmental fusion rather than fusion that is acquired secondary to conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
