Foot and Ankle Surgery in Crown Point, IN
Did you know that there are 28 bones in your foot, three in your ankle, and more than 30 joints between the two? In addition to bones and joints, your feet are made up of a complex network of cartilage, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. This assortment allows for an extensive range of motion, enabling you to stand, walk, and run. Your feet and ankles also provide support, balance, and shock absorption – all of which are key functions necessary for comfortable movement.
It goes without saying that the strength and flexibility of your feet and ankles are extremely important to your mobility. However, because of the considerable stress we place on our feet and ankles every day, they are prone to conditions and injuries caused by a wide range of factors, such as aging, the effects of diabetes, nerve damage, and poor blood circulation. Likewise, foot infections can lead to ulcers, sores, trauma, or deformities.
