What is the most common fracture of the foot and ankle?
The most common type of fracture is an ankle fracture. In this video, Christopher Hodgkins, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at Baptist Health South Florida, explains that with more than 20 bones in the foot, there is a wide scope of vulnerability.
What is a modified Brostrom procedure?
Ankle instability is a condition in which the ankle has lost its normal stability due to loose ligaments. If non-operative treatment is ineffective in relieving symptoms, typical surgery to repair the stretched-out ligaments (a modified Brostrom procedure) works well, with high patient satisfaction rates.
How can I exercise and still protect my feet as I get older?
James Ioli, Podiatry, answeredIt's wise to wear comfortable supportive shoes, shoe inserts, or both when you plan to increase your activity level (for example, in exercises such as walking, running, or tennis). It may also be time to consider alternative forms of exercise, such as swimming or bicycling, which put less pressure on the joints of the foot. Maintaining some form of exercise routine is vital to help offset problems later.
