Ankle Instability
Ankle instability is a condition in which it feels as though the outer side of your ankle is going to give way. Read more...

An ankle sprain is a soft tissue injury that most frequently happens when the ligaments on the outside of the ankle are stretched or torn. Read more...
 
Arthritis is the painful inflammation and stiffness of the joints. Although we might most commonly associate arthritis with our hands, with 28 bones and more than 30 joints in the foot, arthritis can also plague those extremities, too. Read more...
 
A chronic, contagious infection caused by various types of fungi known as dermatophytes, athlete's foot, or tinea pedis, does not affect only athletes. Athlete's foot usually starts between the toes or on the arches, but it can spread to the bottoms and sides of your feet. Read more...
 
With all its running, twisting, turning, and jumping, basketball is one of the hardest games on the feet. Different movements put all the areas of the foot at risk. That is why proper conditioning, stretching, and well-fitting shoes are critical to a healthy enjoyment of the sport. Read more...
 
A blister is a small, fluid-filled bubble on the skin. Most blisters on the feet are caused by friction and do not require medical attention. New skin will form underneath the affected area, and the fluid built up in the blister is simply absorbed back into the tissue. Read more...
 
Bone spurs are very common foot problems. They develop most frequently in the heel, near the toes, or on top of the big toe joint. Read more...
 

Bunions
A bunion is a bone deformity caused by an enlargement of the joint at the base and side of the big toe (metatarsophalangeal joint). Bunions form when the toe moves out of place. Read more...

Chronic lateral ankle pain is recurring pain on the outside part of the ankle that often develops after an injury such as an ankle sprainRead Read more...

A corn is an area of thick, hardened, and dead skin usually found where your toes rub together. The inner core of a corn may be soft or hard. A soft corn often shows up between the toes, while a hard corn usually forms on the bony part of, most commonly, the little toe. Read more...
 
A crush injury is exactly (and is as painful) as it sounds: an injury to your foot that damages one or multiple parts of the foot or ankle. Read more...

Diabetes leads to many problems, including the development of sores and ulcers on your feet that, in worst case scenarios, can lead to amputations. Read more...
 
Your feet are two of the most overlooked body parts when it comes to exercise. As you exercise, pay attention to what your feet are telling you. Read more...
 
Foot drop (or drop foot) describes a condition in which you are unable to lift the front part of your foot, which causes the toes to drag on the ground. Read more...
 
Foot odor requires no definition, but it may require explanation. We at NOPA are happy to oblige. Read more... 
 
Nearly one fourth of all the bones in your body are in your feet. A broken or fractured bone in your forefoot or in one of your toes is often painful, but it is rarely disabling. Read more...
 
Toenail fungus is also known as onychomycosis. Fungi make up one of the kingdoms of the natural world and include organisms like yeasts and mushrooms. Fungi feed off of organic matter, and since you are organic, they can live off of you as well, including underneath your toenails. Read more...
 
A hammertoe is a deformity of the toe in which the toe is bent at the middle joint, causing it to resemble an inverted V or a hammer. Read more...

A neuroma is an enlarged, benign growth of nerves. It is a thickening of the tissue around the nerve and is sometimes referred to as a "pinched nerve." Morton's neuroma is a thickening of tissues around the nerve that leads to the toes. Read more...
 
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is sophisticated diagnostic equipment used to diagnose an array of health problems or conditions. Read more...
