Foot deformities are a group of congenital and acquired conditions involving structural abnormalities that may affect the bones, tendons, and muscles of your foot. The deformities are classified according to clinical appearance.
Achilles Tendon Injuries – Haglund’s Deformity (Pump Bump)
Haglund’s deformity is a bony enlargement on the back of your heel.
These are common injuries most often caused by your ankle rolling inward or outward.
Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
This is nerve damage caused by diabetes that affects the arms, hands, legs, and feet.
This is a condition caused by changes in the tendon, impairing its ability to support the arch.
These are noncancerous lumps that most commonly develop along the tendons or joints of your ankles and feet.
Lateral Column (Outside of Midfoot) Overload
Lateral column overload, also known as lateral column pain, is a descriptive term for a myriad of symptoms involving the joints and bones of the lateral column.
The Lisfranc joint is the point at which your metatarsal bones (long bones that lead up to the toes) and the tarsal bones (bones in the arch) connect.
Peroneal Tendon Injuries
A tendon is a band of tissue that connects a muscle to a bone. The two peroneal tendons in the foot run side by side behind the outer ankle bone.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition that happens when your immune system attacks your joint lining tissue, causing painful inflammation and stiffness.
