The human foot and ankle complex is a strong and complex mechanical structure, containing 26 bones, 33 joints and over a hundred muscles, tendons and ligaments.

It provides the base of support for most activities, and therefore is one of the most frequent orthopedic injuries (ankle sprain).  When injured,  there is obvious local trauma, but frequently it can cause injuries further up the kinetic chain if not properly treated.

Common nonsurgical injuries include:

  • Achilles tendinopathy

  • Joint pain

  • Tibialis Posterior tendinopathy

  • Peroneal tendinopathy

  • Plantar fasciopathy

  • Lateral Ankle sprain (ligament injury)

  • Turf Toe

  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
