Bunions are caused by misalignment and rotation of the great toe's metatarsal bone. In the past, bunions were often shaven down, helping return a more natural shape to this area of the foot. More recently, techniques were developed to properly bring these bones back into alignment, restoring not only the shape, but also the structural integrity and strength of the foot.

Ingrown Toenail

An ingrown toenail happens when the edge or corner of a toenail grows into the surrounding skin, eventually causing aggravation. Many people will suffer from one at least once in their lifetime, and many of these cases are relatively mild. There are certain situations, however, when an ingrown toenail should absolutely be seen by a professional.

Morton's Neuroma

Morton's neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of your foot, most commonly the area between your third and fourth toes. Morton's neuroma involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes. This can cause a sharp, burning pain in the ball of your foot. You may have stinging, burning or numbness in the affected toes.

High-heeled or tight shoes have been linked to the development of Morton's neuroma. Many people experience relief by switching to lower heeled shoes with wider toe boxes. Sometimes corticosteroid injections or surgery may be necessary.


Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammation in the plantar fascia, muscles running along the bottom of the foot. It is one of the main causes of heel pain and can be treated in a variety of methods from stretches, to orthotics, to laser therapy, and many more. There also are several other causes of heel, so be sure to consult one of our specialists to help determine the best route to your recovery.

Achilles Tendinitis

Achilles tendinitis is an overuse injury of the Achilles tendon, the band of tissue that connects calf muscles at the back of the lower leg to your heel bone. Achilles tendinitis most commonly occurs in runners who have suddenly increased the intensity or duration of their runs.


Metatarsalgia is a condition in which the ball of your foot becomes painful and inflamed. You might develop it if you participate in activities that involve running and jumping. There are other causes as well, including foot deformities and shoes that are too tight or too loose. Treatments range from simple ice and rest, to new footwear or orthotics, and in some cases, surgical realignment of the metatarsal bones.
