    What is Capsulitis of the Second Toe? Ligaments surrounding the joint at the base of the second toe form a "capsule," which helps the joint to function properly. Capsulitis is a condition in which these ligaments have become inflamed.

    Although capsulitis can also occur in the joints of the third or fourth toes, it most commonly affects the second toe. This inflammation causes considerable discomfort and, if left untreated, can eventually lead to a weakening of syndrome -- is a common condition that can occur at any age.
  • Achilles Tendon Rupture

    A tendon is a band of tissue that connects a muscle to a bone. The Achilles tendon runs down the back of the lower leg and connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. Also called the "heel cord," the Achilles tendon facilitates walking by helping to raise the heel off the ground.

    An Achilles tendon rupture is a complete or partial tear that occurs when the tendon is stretched beyond its capacity. Forceful jumping or pivoting, or sudden accelerations of running, can overstretch the tendon and cause a tear. An injury to the tendon can also result from falling or tripping.

    The accessory navicular (os navicularum or os tibiale externum) is an extra bone or piece of cartilage located on the inner side of the foot just above the arch. It is incorporated within the posterior tibial tendon, which attaches in this area. An accessory navicular is congenital (present at birth). It is not part of normal bone structure and therefore is not present in most people.

    People who have an accessory navicular often are unaware of the condition if it causes no problems. However, some people with this extra bone develop a painful condition known as accessory navicular syndrome when the bone and/or posterior tibial tendon are aggravated. This can result from any of the following: Trauma, Chronic irritation from shoes or other footwear, excessive activity or overuse

    The most common cause of heel pain for children during periods of growth is Sever's Disease also called Calcaneal Apophysitis. Dr. Young has uploaded a new video that discusses this topic in detail and can be viewed below. Sever's disease or Apophysitis is a common condition that afflicts children usually between the ages of 8 to 14 years old.

    When children complain of heel pain it should not be ignored. This time of year is when we see many patients with this type of pain. Often the pain is most noticable after children are playing sports and most pronounced with any sport that requires the use of cleats.

    The video about Sever's Disease discusses the symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and more. For more information about this condition visit the website for information about Sever's Disease.

    While this type of heel pain is often common in children and can be something that they "out-grow", they do not have to live with the pain. If your child complains of heel pain contact us and we can help. To more images of the cause of this type of pain and a patient xray visit the link below. You will also find a comprehensive list of treatment options including some that can be performed at home.

    This video discusses in more detail one of the most common disorders of the Achilles Tendon. This disorder, or injury, is caused by overuse. Dr. Young discusses in detail the various treatment options for this condition.

    For patients experiencing a pain or tenderness behind or just above the heel this video will offer some insight about the condition and treatment options. The Achilles tendon can suffer from degeneration, inflammation, spurring and calcification. These can be seen with ultrasound imaging (included in the video).

    Dr. Young uses ultrasound imaging to view a patients Achilles tendon and discusses treatment options.

    The best course of action with any injury that due to overuse or misuse (possibly from an abnormal gait/stride) is to correct any issues that are causing this type of injury. Prevention is key.

    Proper stretching and footwear will help prevent injury/re-injury, custom orthotics may be necessary.
