Although comparatively small in size to the rest of us, our feet and ankles contain a little more than a quarter of all the bones in our body. And connected to those bones are networks of muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues. It’s an intricate machine, but it helps us achieve a great range of motion.
Unfortunately, even great structures can sometimes have flaws. Conditions such as bunions, hammertoes, and other foot deformities can interfere with standard motion and the way we bear weight across our feet. This, in turn, can lead to additional problems.
When a foot deformity is causing pain and discomfort, the primary goals of treatment are to relieve those symptoms and take measures to slow or stop the deformity from becoming worse.
While it may be understandable to think that surgery is always the best route in all situations, that is very frequently not the case. Many foot deformities can be effectively treated through use of non-surgical methods instead.
