Did You Know?

The human foot has 28 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles and numerous tendons that work together to keep you balanced and active. When there’s an injury or pain with any of them, it affects more than just your foot. Foot disorders can prevent you from performing your regular daily activities or enjoying the things you love.

75% of all Americans will experience foot problems at some point in their lifetime. This blog provides helpful information and resources regarding the most common foot problems. If you’d like more information about any of the topics, or to schedule an appointment with a foot and ankle specialist, contact us today.
