Pes Cavus Foot Treatment

Overview
All forms of pes cavus are characterised by a high arch in the sagittal plane of the foot. The corollary is a bulge on the dorsum of the foot. Weight is borne posteriorly on the calcaneal tuberosity and anteriorly on the heads of the metatarsal bones. Pes cavus is usually acquired, although a minority of cases are congenital.

Causes

Extra Bone In Foot Accessory Navicular

Overview
An accessory navicular bone is an accessory bone of the foot that occasionally develops abnormally in front of the ankle towards the inside of the foot. This bone may be present in approximately 2-14% of the general population and is usually asymptomatic. When it is symptomatic, surgery may be necessary. Surgery can be performed at any age because it does not alter any other bones.

Bursitis Of The Foot Therapy

Overview
Bursae are situated in various locations throughout the body where friction between tissues commonly occurs. These sacs are designed to help reduce friction and prevent pain. Repetitive movements or prolonged and excessive pressure are the most common causes of bursal inflammation, though traumatic injury may also cause this painful problem. In fact, the body sometimes creates bursal sacs in response to trauma or tissue damage.

Causes

What Are The Primary Causes Of Posterior Calcaneal Spur

Overview
Heel spurs occur in at least half the people who have plantar fasciitis, a painful condition involving the thick tissue that runs between your heel bone and your toes. In the past, doctors often performed surgery to remove heel spurs, believing them to be the cause of the pain associated with plantar fasciitis. In treating plantar fasciitis now, doctors rely more on ice, arch supports, physical therapy and pain medications, and surgery is rarely performed.
