Some runners fail multiple treatments including stretching, home exercises, physical therapy, braces, PRP injections and many other treatments. You just have to figure what it will take to get the Achilles tendon to heal so you can get back to running.View Details »
The peroneal retinaculum is a thin band of tissue that helps hold the peroneal tendons behind the fibula at the outside of the ankle. There are actually two distinct peroneal retinaculums; the “superior peroneal retinaculum” and the “inferior peroneal retinaculum.” The one you actually care about if you’re having popping and clicking and pain at the outside of the ankle is the superior peroneal retinaculum.View Details
Ganglion Cysts – A Painful Bump On the Top of The Foot.
What is a ganglion cyst?
A ganglion cyst is fluid filled sack that appears a lump or bump under the skin. In the foot this most often occurs on the top of the foot or at the big toe joint. The fluid within a ganglion cyst is actually synovial fluid (the fluid that lubricates your joints). The ganglion itself is a little balloon of synovial tissue that has squeezed out of the joint capsule. Because of this, a ganglion cysts is always a little mass attached to or extending from a joint or tendon sheath.View Details
What is Achilles’ Tendonitis?
Achilles tendinitis is inflammation within the tendon itself. Achilles tendinitis can occur anywhere within the tendon, all the way from the heel bone up to the calf muscle. However, most often the Achilles tendinitis occurs in a specific area just above the heel bone. This area, where the tendon is easiest to feel with your hand, happens to have decreased blood flow as compared to the rest of the tendon. For this reason, an overused tendon may become weaker, inflamed and injured in this area.View Details »
What Is Retrocalcaneal Bursitis?
Retrocalcaneal bursitis is closely related to Haglund’s Deformity (or “pump bumps”). If you have a bony enlargement on the back of the heel that rubs the Achilles tendon, it can cause the formation of a bursa (small fluid filled sack). It usually happens in athletes as shoes rub against the heel. The bursa can aggravated by the stitching of a heel counter in the shoe as well. It can make wearing shoes and exercising difficult. Another term used for this condition is “pump bump” because it can frequently occur with wearing high heels as well.View Details »
