Over time, stress from poor foot function can stretch or tear the ligaments or tendons in your heel. Treatment goals for these problems include reducing abnormal pull on the ligaments and tendons.

Our philosophy is to help educate people to have the necessary information to make good decisions regarding their foot and ankle health. The main topics will include heel pain, athletes foot, and nail fungus, while any other questions you may have will be addressed.
