Foot & Ankle Conditions

Orange County Podiatrists & Foot Doctors

The foot and ankle are highly complex structures that work together when supporting our body and allowing it to stand, walk, run, and move in many different ways. In fact, the human foot and ankle contain over 100 ligaments, tendons, bones, and muscles combined, and consist of 33 joints. Over the course of a person’s life, these structures sustain a tremendous amount of pressure, and absorb a great deal of impact and stress when a person is active and highly mobile. As such, foot and ankle injuries caused by overuse, wear and tear, and sudden movements from sports or activities are common.

When the foot or ankle are injured, patients often require specialized medical attention and treatment in order to restore maximum function and movement.
