Feet and ankles suffer some of the most painful and debilitating injuries and problems. Whether you are highly athletic or just find yourself standing all day, you could be susceptible to one of these injuries.
While ankle sprains are all too common, they are still painful and can keep you off your feet for a while. An ankle sprain is caused by an unnatural twisting or force on the ankle bones of the foot. This often results in one or more ligaments on the outside of the ankle to stretch or tear. Too many people write off ankle sprains as minor injuries – or worse – try to walk through the pain. If not property treated, ankle sprains can develop into long term problems and worse injuries. Bunions are another one of those common yet annoying conditions. When misaligned big toe joints become swollen and tender. This causes the first joints to slant and angle oddly, causing bunions. Flat feet are another common condition that can be helped with foot care in Brighton Beach. Less common but still treatable is hammertoe – a deformity of the second, third, or fourth toes. If left untreated it can require surgery.
