    Meniscus Tears

    Meniscus Tears

    Plantar Fasciitis

    Plantar Fasciitis

    The plantar fascia is the most bottom superficial level of your foot. It’s a ligament that originates at the heel bone and goes all the way up to the ball of your foot. Plantar fasciitis occurs when that ligament becomes irritated and inflamed, resulting in pain and swelling in the bottom of the heel. Learn more about diagnosing and treating plantar fasciitis, and what to expect if you need treatment.

    Osteoporosis

    Osteoporosis

    Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder, characterized by low bone mass, that causes a structural deterioration of the bone. The resulting low bone mass and low bone quality increases the risk of a fracture–even in cases where patients report no or minimal traumatic events leading up to the break. Osteoporosis is often left undiagnosed, until patients present with a fracture, because it is an asymptomatic disease. Learn more about who is at risk, other ways to diagnose it, and what can be done to manage and maintain bone mass.
