                         Lateral (Inversion) Ankle Sprain

Definition:

The most common type of ankle sprain and occurs when the foot is inverted too much

Symptoms:

Inflammation, swelling, warmth, and redness in the area of injury

Causes:

Activities that involve side-to-side motion, such as tennis or basketball. Walking on uneven ground or lack of warm-up and stretching before a physical activity will increase the risk of a sprain.


                          Pain of the First MTP Joint (The Big Toe)

Definition:

Within the first MTP joint, or the big toe, there are articular cartilages that act as cushions and helps lubricate the joint surfaces. Over time, the articular cartilage begins to thin or form cracks. While, the bones begin to rub together, causing pain.

Symptoms:

Arthritis of the first MTP joint usually starts slowly and results in pain, stiffness and/or swelling of the joint. Bumps or nodes may appear around the MTP joint. When moved, a crackling sound may be heard.

Causes:

Exact causes are unknown, but risk factors include: previous first MTP joint injury or fracture, family history of first MTP , being overweight, damage from another type of arthritis, and increasing age.

                         Metatarsal Neuroma (Morton’s Neuroma)

Definition: 

A benign neuroma of an intermetatarsal planter nerve

Symptoms:

Pain on weight bearing, frequently after only a short time; the pain is felt as as shooting pain affecting the contiguous halves of two toes. Burning and numbness may also be experienced.
