Ankle, which is termed as talocrural joint is the part where the foot and leg meets. The foot forms the major part as all the muscles from the lower limb is attached to foot. In nature, the human foot is designed with two longitudinal arched, which is supported by a transverse arch that forms the shape of the bone and the ligaments. The various forces on these arches enables us in walking and running and other activities in more economical ways with respect to the energy spent. Foot, as it performs various activities and due to its functions it is prone to various kinds of infections and injuries like athletes foot and other various fungal and bacterial infections. This region is also prone to fractures easily.

Bone Health in Foot

During the growing years, body needs calcium to build strong bones. The feet are flexible structures of bones, joints, muscles, and soft tissues that let us stand upright and perform activities like walking, running, and jumping. Stress fracture is a small crack in bone. Stress fracture usually occurs in the people who change their regular activities. The main cause of stress fractures is sudden increase in physical activity. Many other factors which cause stress fracture are bone insufficiency, improper technique, improper equipment.

Intoeing

Mostly all the people’s feet points straight ahead but in some people the feet point inwards. This is called intoeing or pigeon toes. Intoeing is most common in young children. In majority of the children always correct itself without any surgery, braces or any special treatment. There are three main causes curved foot, twisted shin, twisted thigh bone. Prevention is not possible because they occur either from genetic problems or development which cannot be controlled. Treatment depends on the type of cause for intoeing. Mostly intoeing do not cause any serious problem, even if it does not go away by itself.

Knee Arthroplasty

Knee Arthroplasty is also known as Knee replacement surgery. The knee is the largest joint in the body and having healthy knees is required to perform most everyday activities. Arthroplasty is a field of medicine which deals with the surgical reconstruction and total replacement of degenerated joints. Arthroplasty uses artificial body parts (prosthetics). Arthroplasty literally means "the surgical repair of a joint". The knee is made up of the lower end of the femur (thighbone), the upper end of the tibia (shinbone), and the patella (kneecap). The ends of these three bones where they touch are covered with articular cartilage, a smooth substance that protects the bones and enables them to move easily.

Major Disease Statistics

 
*Unofficial 2015 Journal Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2013 and 2014 with the number of times they are cited in 2015 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If 'X' is the total number of articles published in 2013 and 2014, and 'Y' is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2015 then, impact factor = Y/X
