Specialized Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Clinic

The foot and ankle section of your body is a complex structure of bones and joints held together by over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. With 26 bones and 33 small joints, it takes the entire load of the body and is most vulnerable to wear & tear; especially in people who are physically very active.

Unless caused by a traumatic injury, most cases of foot or ankle pain gradually heal with the help of simple self-care measures. Though some could take a few months to fully recover. However, some pain can have no obvious cause or may not improve significantly with self-care. Pain that seems to be getting worse, does not improve or lasts longer than a few months could be due to the damage to the structural components in the foot or ankle, or could be an underlying infection. Below are some of the common symptoms of foot and ankle conditions that can significantly stand in the way of day-to-day activities.

Foot & Ankle

Your foot and ankle are made up of 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 tendons. The heel is the largest bone in your foot.

Heel Pain

If you have been working very hard and overusing or get your heel injured, you may experience terrible pain in your heel. This may range anywhere from mild to severe, and make you immobile.


A neuroma is a painful condition, also referred to as a “pinched nerve” or a nerve tumor. It is a benign growth of nerve tissue frequently found between the third and fourth toes. It brings on pain, a burning sensation, tingling, or numbness between the toes and in the ball of the foot.

Hallux Valgus

Hallux Valgus, commonly referred to as a bunion, is a complex valgus deformity of the first ray that can cause medial big toe pain and difficulty with shoe wear.
