Damage to the foot can occur either through injury or age-related wear and tear (degeneration). In young people, the main cause is usually trauma. Dislocations (distortions) can lead to fractures of the metatarsal bones or to torn ligaments. People who have to walk a lot in everyday life are particularly susceptible to foot damage. The risk of foot injury is increased for endurance athletes such as runners or people who sports that require sudden changes of direction, such as basketball or tennis.
In most cases, an imbalance in the foot results in an imbalance in the entire body. One of the reasons for this is that the sensors in the foot and ankle are directly linked to our sense of balance. It is all the more important to treat diseases and injuries of the foot quickly and in a targeted manner.
To this end, knowledge of the conservative, non-surgical treatment options is just as important as knowledge and skills of the surgical therapeutic options. Most problems in the foot and ankle area can also be treated conservatively or at least significantly improved.
