Diseases, disorders, and disabilities of the foot or ankle affect the quality of life and mobility of millions of Americans.

Foot ailments can be a first sign of more serious medical problems. Such conditions as arthritis, diabetes, nerve and circulatory disorders can show their initial symptoms in the feet.
