Diagnostic Foot Ultrasound

Science and technology has now afforded new and better ways to diagnose medical problems. One of the most important diagnostic procedures used today is through ultrasound imaging or sonography. It was developed around the 1960s and continues to evolve into a highly developed and beneficial tool in the medical industry.

Ingrown Toe Nails or Toe Nail Deformities

An ingrown toenail is a common foot problem faced by many people. It is the condition wherein the side or corner of the nail grows into the flesh of the toe. While some people are more prone to ingrown toenails due to the thickness and size of their toenails, many are affected with it due to wrong practices or habits.

Hammer Toe

A hammer toe is a deformity of the toe which is typically identified by the curl in the middle joint of the toe.

Heel Spurs

A heel spur refers to heel pain caused by a fragment of bone that protrudes from the heel bone or Calcaneus either at the back of the heel or under. Although the abnormal protrusion in itself is not painful, it does inflame the plantar fascia tissues making the area tender and painful especially when stepping on the heel.

Plantar Fasciitis

The plantar fascia ligament is a broad, thick and fibrous band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot from the heel to the toes.
