Broken bones can be caused from traumatic injuries like a car crash or from a simple misstep or fall.  Fractures can range from small cracks in your bones to serious breaks in the bone that can pierce your skin.  The treatment of a broken bone depends on the exact site and extent of the fracture.  A severely broken ankle or foot bone may require surgery to implant, screws or plates into the broken bone to maintain proper alignment and position during healing.  For lesser fractures, simple immobilization and casting techniques may be the course of treatment. “Click here for more information regarding fractured bones.


A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. A bunion forms when your big toe pushes against the second next toe.  This forces the joint of your big toe to get bigger and stick out. The skin over the bunion might be red and sore.   Wearing tight, narrow shoes can cause bunions or make them worse. Bunions also can develop as a result of genetics, structural defect, stress on your foot or a medical condition, such as arthritis.  Smaller bunions (bunionettes) can develop on the joint of your little toe.  Bunions can be treated conservatively with change in shoe gear, stretching modalities and anti-inflammatory medication, however the only way to change a bunion structure is to preform surgery. “Click here for more information regarding bunions.
