• joints
  • 5 The posterior tibial tendon also stabilizes the hindfoot in conjunction with the gastrocnemius-soleus complex by inverting the heel during gait, which locks the transverse tarsal joints, converting the foot into a rigid lever for push-off. (podiatrytoday.com)
  • When the first and second joints of your toes experience the prolonged stress that develops when the muscles that control them fail to work together properly, the pressure on the tendons that support them can lead to the curling or contraction known as hammertoe. (rakuten.co.jp)
  • The type of surgery performed will depend on the problem with your toes and may involve releasing or lengthening tendons, putting joints back into place, straightening a toe and changing the shape of a bone.Your surgeon may fix the toes in place with wires or tiny screws. (rakuten.co.jp)
  • The location of pain, shape of the foot, flexibility of the hindfoot joints and gait all may help your physician make the diagnosis and also assess how advanced the problem is. (soup.io)
  • arthrodesis
  • Our hypothesis is that a dynamically locked hindfoot arthrodesis nail and immediate weight-bearing does not compromise union rates or time to union. (ispub.com)
  • We believe that the use of a dynamically locked hindfoot arthrodesis nail allows immediate and simple mobilization post-operatively in a patient population who is unable to sustain non-weightbearing. (ispub.com)
  • bones
  • Procedures may include ligament and muscle lengthening, removal of the inflamed tendon lining, tendon transfers, cutting and realigning bones , placement of implants to realign the foot and joint fusions. (hatenablog.com)
  • The bones in your hindfoot include the calcaneus, known as the heel, and the talus, which is located on top of it. (ihealthspot.com)
  • Surgery is necessary for most hindfoot fractures if the bones have moved out of place. (ihealthspot.com)
  • In select cases, hindfoot fractures with bones that have not moved out of place may be treated without surgery. (ihealthspot.com)
  • calcaneus
  • After appropriate joint reduction, drive the guide wire from the posterior-inferior calcaneus across the subtler joint into the talar body and/or talar neck region. (podiatrytoday.com)
  • pain
  • The most effective way to relieve pain on the tendon is to use a boot or brace, and once tenderness and pain has resolved, an orthotic device. (soup.io)
  • symptoms
  • Once these symptoms have resolved, patients are often transitioned into an orthotic that supports the inside aspect of the hindfoot. (wordpress.com)
  • osteotomies
  • In general, early stage disease may be treated with tendon and ligament (soft-tissue) procedures with the addition of osteotomies to realign the foot. (hatenablog.com)
  • foot
  • Just as the tendon degenerates and loses its function, other soft tissue on the same inner side of the foot - namely the ligaments - degenerate and fail. (soup.io)
  • At this stage, the foot?s still going to be flexible, although it will likely have flattened somewhat due to the lack of support from the posterior tibial tendon. (wordpress.com)
  • In some cases, a cast or boot is worn to stabilize the foot and to give the tendon time to heal. (soup.io)
  • Your podiatrist is very familiar with tendons that have just about had enough, and will likely be able to diagnose this condition by performing a physical exam of your foot. (weebly.com)
  • foot (the one without the complaining tendon) off the ground, standing only on your problem foot. (weebly.com)
  • As the person ages, the tendons and ligaments that support the foot begin to lose their strength and elasticity. (soup.io)
  • Tendon transfer, which is a procedure to re-attach a tendon to another area of bone, may also be used to reduce pronation and improve foot function. (hatenablog.com)
  • The hindfoot is the back of the foot. (adam.com)
  • The hindfoot bears and distributes your body weight across your foot when you stand or walk. (ihealthspot.com)
  • tear
  • More commonly, the tendon becomes injured from cumulative wear and tear. (soup.io)
  • soft tissue
  • Once the tendon and soft tissue around it elongates, there is no strengthening exercises or mechanism to shorten the tendon back to a normal position. (soup.io)
  • treatment
  • This treatment is especially attractive for patients who are elderly, who place low demands on the tendon, and who may have underlying medical problems that preclude operative intervention. (hatenablog.com)
