Osteoarthritis is considered a wear-and-tear disease because the cartilage in the joint wears down with repeated stress and use over time. As the cartilage deteriorates and gets thinner, the bones lose their protective covering and eventually may rub together, causing pain and inflammation of the joint.
In the foot, the disease most frequently occurs in the big toe, although it is also often found in the midfoot and ankle. Learn More: https://bit.ly/2DxpEJ8 #foot #feet #ankle #Arthritis #Osteoarthritis #podiatry #podsfixfeet #toe #vancity #cartilage #bones #footdr #podiatrist #swelling #health

Ligaments surrounding the joint at the base of the second toe form a capsule, which helps the joint to function properly. Capsulitis is a condition in which these ligaments have become inflamed. This inflammation causes considerable discomfort and, if left untreated, can eventually lead to a weakening of surrounding ligaments that can cause dislocation of the toe. Capsulitis—also referred to as predislocation syndrome—is a common condition that can occur at any age.

Study shows severity of ankle fractures increases as body mass index increases.
Obesity nearly doubles the odds of a patient having the most severe category of ankle fracture, according to research published in a recent issue of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons’ Journal of Foot & Ankle Surgery (JFAS).
Obesity (classified as BMI of 30 kg/m2 or greater) is becoming more prevalent in America and so are musculoskeletal issues associated with it. One more reason to maintain a healthy diet, exercise plan and body weight to possibly help decrease the likelihood of an ankle injury being more severe.

A black, purple or brownish discoloration under or involving a toenail is frequently due to trauma to the toenail, such as when something is dropped on the toe. The color results from a blood clot or bleeding under the nail . However there are rare causes such as malignant melanoma, fungal infections, chronic ingrown nails or health problems affecting the rest of the body. Early diagnosis and treatment of melanoma improves the chances for a good outcome, it is important that all black toenails be evaluated by a qualified podiatrist to rule out this cause and get immediate help for your black toe nail. #foot #feet #toe #toenails #blacktoenail #trauma #podsfixfeet #podiatrist #vancity #podiatry #foothealth #health #melanoma #fungalinfections #bloodclots Thank you @foothealthfacts for this info.

When a toenail is ingrown, it is curved and grows into the skin, usually at the nail borders (the sides of the nail). This digging in of the nail irritates the skin, often creating pain, redness, swelling and warmth in the toe.
Prevention:
Proper trimming. Cut toenails in a fairly straight line, and do not cut them too short. You should be able to get your fingernail under the sides and end of the nail.
Well-fitting shoes and socks. Do not wear shoes that are short or tight in the toe area. Avoid shoes that are loose because they too cause pressure on the toes, especially when running or walking briskly. #toenails #nails #toe #foot #feet #podiatry #podsfixfeet #vancity #podiatrist #ingrowntoenails #ingrownnails #nailcare #nailtrimming Thank you to @foothealthfacts for this info

According to a 2018 survey by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) 62% of US adults want their feet to be more comfortable in their shoes.
Three tips to finding a comfortable shoe:
1.) Look for a stiff heel. Press on both sides of the heel counter. It shouldn't collaspse.
2.) Check toe flexibility. The shoe should bend with your toes. It shouldn't be too stiff or bend too much in the toe box area.
3.) Select a shoes with a rigid middle. Does your shoe twist? Your shoe should never twist in the middle.

Squeezing feet into ill fitting high heels can cause toes to curl up to fit the footwear. Eventually the toes, but usually the second one, become so misshapen they cant be straightened.
Even when not wearing shoes.
There are many nonsurgical measures that can be undertaken:
Padding corns and calluses.
Changes in shoewear.
Orthotic devices.
Medications.
Splinting/strapping.
Visit your podiatrist today for a thorough examination.
