What is hindfoot arthritis?
Hindfoot arthritis involves pain and stiffness in the joints at the rear of the foot. Arthritis in any -- or all three -- of the joints below the ankle can cause significant discomfort, pain and disability. Function in this area is important as it affects the ankle’s shock-absorbing abilities and may alter a person’s gait.
What could cause my toes to bump upward at the tips?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredToes that bump upward at the tips could indicate lung cancer. This is known as “digital clubbing.” If you notice an elevated bump between your toe’s knuckle and nail, it means oxygen isn’t getting delivered properly throughout your body and could indicate disease of the lung or the heart. Schedule an appointment with your doctor if you notice this.
