This deformity affects mostly women. The foot is very wide, even webbed. The condition is characterized by protruding of the first and fourth metatarsal bone to the medial and lateral side of the foot.
Rheumatic disease often leads to destructions of the foot joints. Frequently, very big deformities form in a very short period of time. Specific character of this condition does not allow to describe the deformities precisely.
Arthroscopy base on introducing a small, microscope camera into a pond to watch its inside. It is used in today’s traumatology and orthopedics as a diagnosis method as well as minimally invasive treatment.
Halluxes are diseases of the big toe: hallux rigidus, which means degenerative changes formed in metatarsophalangeal joint, and hallux valgus, which refers to a deformed angulation of the big toe.
Hammer and mallet toes are deformities that often coexist with flat foot or hallux rigidus. They result in, among others, calluses on the dorsal side of toes.
One of the most common diseases of the heel is overgrowth of the heel tumor – sliding heel back. It occurs mostly in young women, looks unsightly and causes problems in chosing proper shoes.
Feet deformations can be inborn or aquired. Static pes planus transversus, rheumatic foot, flattened foot, hollow foot – these are the most commonly occurring foot diseases.
