Anatomy Of The Foot Tendons And Ligaments
Are the medial/lateral tarsal, dorsal metatarsal, anterial tibial and arcuate, the only arteries on the front of the leg and foot?
VASCULATURE: Sounds like a question for school. Anyway, here goes: ant. tibial, dorsalis pedis, perforating peroneal, ant. lat. malleolar, ant. med. malleolar, lateral tarsal, arcuate, 1st prox. perforating, dorsal metatarsal, dorsal digital, medial tarsal. Hope that's all. Sincerely, Dr. Latva ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends on ligament: Ankle ligament rupture if chronic typically has instability and "giving way" as it's main symptom, this is the same for subtler instability. Midfoot ligament rupture is usually represented by pain an the medial side with a flat foot deformity. This represents either rupture of the ligament keeping the arch up or the junction of the hind foot and midfoot. It could also be represented by pain! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: The plantaris tendon and posterior tibialos tendon both arise from posterior muscles of the leg and connect to the foot. The Achilles' tendon is the largest of the posterior tendons. ...Read more
What is the main ligament on the medial aspect of ankle?, which muscles make up the Achilles tendon, what is a typical treatment for muscle and tendon
Minimal fluid around the tendon sheath of the peroneus bervis and peroneus longus muscles suggestive for tenosynovitis what is the treatment?
Rest: Tendonitis is treated by relative rest (cease from all activities that give pain), physical therapy, and anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen, alleve). Sometimes immobilization is neede in a cast or boot. A cortisone shot if often helpful, but cannot be done in some areas of tendonitis. ...Read more
Will i need foot surgery for focal longitudinal split tear of the peroneus longus tendon, tenosynovitis of the flexor tendons, or a non visualized atf?
MAYBE: For the flexor tenosynovitis, no; PT, rest w/ a boot, NSAID's may help. "Non-visualized ATF?" I would have to see you clinically. Do you have an unstable ankle? "Split PL tendon"-I would start w/ a boot or brace, maybe PT. If it does not get better and it hurts, may need repair. Good luck! Dr. Latva ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Would pain under the bony knob of the inside of the left ankle and pain in the bend of the left ankle/foot be from posterior tibial tendonitis?
Chronic pain? Mri, scarring of the deep layer of the deltoid subcortical bony oedema at the fib attach of the pos talo ligament, synovitis ankle joint
Can herniation of the fibularis brevis cause the posterior ankle/achilles to look wider than the other leg?
Can stretching the pirifomis cause si joint instability By stretching the piriformis are you putting stress on the ligaments that keep the joint secure?
What causes pain in the back of the knee when removing shoes by placing the heel of one foot against the other foot and pulling?
Gastrocnemius: Part of your calf muscle attaches above the knee. Forcing the heel backward will recruit this muscle and can cause pain if it is tight or inflamed. A gentle, progressive stretching program should help. ...Read more
I was diagnoses with acute complete tear of peroneal retinaculum and subluxation of the perneous longus and brevis tendons what's the treatment?
Surgery: The retinaculum is a band that holds the peroneus muscle tendons down against the outside aspect of the foot. It provides a tunnel through which the tendons maintain their position and fulcrum action. Surgery is the only way to correct this problem. Since the retinaculum is ligamentous and has no true blood supply it cannot heal itself and thus surgical repair is necessary. See you foot doctor!! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will compression socks help with sciatica and or calf and tibialis anterior pain between the base of leg and top of the foot?
Not likely all: Depending on cause of leg pain (varicose veins/muscle strain, for ex.) compression socks may help, but are not likely to help nerve pain or sciatica (which could have several causes).The pains may/may not be related.A good history & physical incl. osteopathic hands-on exam may find cause(s) & determine treatment which may incl. manipulation, prolotherapy, neuroprolotherapy, meds, etc. ...Read more
What does enthesopathy of the calcaneus at the insertion of the planter aponeurosis and achilles tendon mean?
Inflammation: Enthesopathies is typically associated with inflammation or a calcium deposit where a tendon inserts or connects to the a bone. Achilles enthesopathies can be seen as part of other arthritic conditions such as Ankylosing Spondylitis or psoriatic arthritis. It could also could be a localized issue such as plantar fasciitis which is inflammation of tissue and tendons of the bottom of the foot ...Read more
MRI on foot showed complete tear of central cord of plantar fascia with lateral and medial fascia intact with 2cm fibroma in arch. How to treat this?
Torn Plantar fascia: You should be immobilized for a short time to take pressure off the injury, but this is a ligament tear, and rest and possible anti-inflammatory therapy (including possible cortisone injections) would be of benefit. The ligament does not need to be repaired; in fact, a 'controlled tear' of the tendon is the preferred surgical method for treating plantar fasciitis. You will likely need orthotics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Joint and back pain and stiffness with numerous trigger points, most recent MRI of hand revealed a partial tear of the flexor pollicis longus tendon?
Arthritis: You have described an arthritis condition, of which there are many types. In addition to joint damage, many arthritides can cause tendon damage resulting in tears or ruptures. See a rheumatologist. (note "fibromyalgia" while causing tender points, does not result in tendon tears). ...Read more
