Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a disorder that results in pain in the heel and bottom of the foot.The pain is usually most severe with the first steps of the day or following a period of rest. The condition typically comes on slowly. In about a third of people both sides are affected.

The causes of plantar fasciitis are not entirely clear. Risk factors include overuse such as from long periods of standing, an increase in exercise, and obesity. It is also associated with inward rolling of the foot (pronation). While heel spurs are frequently found it is unclear if they have a role in causing the disease. Plantar fasciitis is aa disorder of the insertion site of the ligament on the bone characterized by micro tears, breakdown of collagen, and scarring.

Most cases of plantar fasciitis resolve with time and conservative methods of treatment. Usually for the first few weeks people are advised to rest, change their activities, take pain medications, and stretch.

Bunions

A hallux abducto valgus deformity, commonly called a bunion, is a deformity characterized by medial deviation of the first metatarsal and lateral deviation of the hallux (big toe), often erroneously described as an enlargement of bone or tissue around the joint at the head of the big toe.

There is disagreement among medical professionals about the cause of bunions; some see them as primarily caused by the long-term use of shoes, particularly tight-fitting shoes with pointed toes,while others believe that the problem stems from genetic factors that are exacerbated by shoe use

Bunions occur when there is a improper gait cycle (pronation). Metatarsal migration occurs and a bunion is formed

Custom foot orthotics can align the foot into a neutral position allowing the excess weight and pressure to be equalized. This keeps excess forces delivered to the great toe. 714-669-9600

Hammertoe

A hammer toe or contracted toe is a deformity of the proximal interphalangeal joint of the second, third, or fourth toe causing it to be permanently bent, resembling a hammer. Mallet toe is a similar condition affecting the distal interphalangeal joint.

Claw toe is another similar condition, with dorsiflexion of the proximal phalanx on the lesser metatarsophalangeal joint, combined with flexion of both the proximal and distal interphalangeal joints. Claw toe can affect the second, third, fourth, or fifth toes.

Hammer toe most frequently results from wearing poorly fitting shoes that can force the toe into a bent position, such as excessively high heels or shoes that are too short or narrow for the foot. Having the toes bent for long periods of time can cause the muscles in them to shorten, resulting in the hammer toe deformity. This is often found in conjunction with bunions or other foot problems (e.g., a bunion can force the big toe to turn inward and push the other toes).

Custom foot orthotic mechanically hold the foot in neutral position stopping pronation , the main cause of hammertoes.

Heel Spurs | Heel Pain

A calcaneal spur (or heel spur) is a small osteophyte (bone spur) located on the calcaneus (heel bone). Calcaneal spurs are typically detected by a radiological examination

When a foot bone is exposed to constant stress, calcium deposits build up on the bottom of the heel bone. Generally, this has no effect on a person’s daily life. However, repeated damage can cause these deposits to pile up on each other, causing a spur-shaped deformity, called a calcaneal (or heel) spur. Obese people, flatfooted people, and women who constantly wear high-heeled shoes are most susceptible to heel spurs.

Heel spurs are cause by falling arches. The arch tendon, which attaches to the heel bone, will build up bone to reattach the arch tendon to the bone. Orthotics support the arch tendon keep it from pulling away from the bone. Orthotics can have heel spur accommodations.
