The human foot is a highly complex structure consisting of dozens of bones and joints and more than a hundred muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The ankle is the joint that connects the foot to the tibia and fibula bones of the lower leg. Between the two, the foot and ankle bear your entire body weight, allow you to stand, walk or run, and can move and flex in a large variety of ways.
Throughout life, your feet and ankles must withstand a tremendous amount of stress and pressure. Foot and ankle pain can make you feel tired and irritable, often interfering with the ability to perform many daily tasks.
The physicians at Salina Ortho are experienced in identifying, correcting and/or preventing foot and ankle issues, whether from everyday activities, work-related activities, or sports.
