Musculoskeletal Foot Problems
The Musculoskeletal (MSK) system involves the muscles, bones, tendons, cartilage, and associated tissues.
Examples of MSK problems include Rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative joint diseases such as osteoarthritis, shin splints, Achilles tendonitis and soft tissue complaints such as plantar fasciitis.
Problems in the foot may be either primary, for example those arising directly from joint/soft tissue disease such as rheumatoid arthritis, or may be secondary to change in structure or function where musculoskeletal conditions lead indirectly to an increase in the prevalence or severity of associated conditions. Your Podiatrist has many treatment options that can alleviate these painful conditions.
