Commonly Treated Foot and Ankle Disorders in Lincoln County, WV
Kanawha Valley Foot & Ankle Associates, PLLC, treats a variety of foot and ankle disorders, including:
Hammertoe: Toe(s) bends in a claw-like position due to muscle imbalance Bunions: Misaligned big toe joints that can become swollen and tender, causing the first joint of the big toe to slant outward, and the second joint to angle toward the other toes Heel Spurs: Growths of bone on the underside, forepart of the heel bone
Ingrown Toenails: Occurs when sides or corners of toenails dig painfully into the skin
Neuromas: Enlarged, benign growths of nerves, most commonly between the third and fourth toes. Tissue rubbing against and irritating the nerves, pressure from poorly fitted shoes or abnormal bone structure can lead to neuromas. Treatments include shoe inserts and/or cortisone injections, but may require surgery
Sesamoiditis: Inflammation or fracture of the two small bones, called sesamoids, under the first metatarsal bones. Wearing proper shoes or orthotics may help
Shin Splints: Pain to either side of the leg bone, caused by muscle or tendon inflammation. It is commonly related to excessive foot pronation or a collapsing arch but shin splints may be related to a muscle imbalance between opposing muscle groups in the leg. Proper stretching and wearing shoe inserts to support the arch can help prevent shin splints
Stress Fractures: Incomplete cracks in bone caused by overuse. Without proper rest, stress fractures may become complete fractures, which require more intensive care
