ANKLE & FOOT

The ankle joint is important during ambulation because it adapts to the surface on which one walks. The movements that occur at the ankle joint are plantarflexion, dorsiflexion, inversion, and eversion. The muscles of the leg divide into anterior, posterior, and lateral compartments.

 

Most foot problems result from anatomic disorders or abnormal function of articular or extra-articular structures. Less commonly, foot problems reflect a systemic disorder.

It is particularly important to seek timely care in order to prevent the worsening of the condition. Our foot and ankle specialist can examine and diagnose an assortment of foot injuries and diseases to plan a course of treatment for a patient.
