Dog arthritis is a serious condition that if left untreated can eventually lead to a severe reduction in the quality of life of your pet. If your dog is recumbent, your aim is of course to get your dog back on its feet and weight bearing as soon as possible, but his is not always easy.

The deadlift and the squat should be moved into this area yet they work many muscles in the upper body as well and are probably the two best weight-bearing exercises for targeting the entire body. There are several flavors of lunges to strengthen the legs, forward and backward leg curls with common equipment, standing and seated calf raises and even reverse calf raises to target the muscles that lift the toes upward.

Custom Orthotics - Podiatrist in Jacksonville, FL Orthotics What are Orthotics? Orthotics are shoe inserts that are intended to correct an abnormal, or irregular, walking pattern. Orthotics are not truly or solely arch supports, although some people use those words to describe them, and they perhaps can best be understood with those words in mind. They perform functions that make standing, walking, and running more comfortable and efficient by altering slightly the angles at which the foot strikes a walking or running surface. Doctors of podiatric medicine prescribe orthotics as a conservative approach to many foot problems or as a method of control after certain types of foot surgery; their use is a highly successful, practical treatment form. Orthotics take various forms and are constructed of various materials. All are concerned with improving foot function and minimizing stress forces that could ultimately cause foot deformity and pain. Foot orthotics fall into three broad categories: those that primarily attempt to change foot function, those that are primarily protective in nature, and those that combine functional control and protection. Rigid Orthotics The so-called rigid orthotic device, designed to control function, may be made of a firm material such as plastic or carbon fiber and is used primarily for walking or dress shoes. It is generally fabricated from a plaster of paris mold of the individual foot. The finished device normally extends along the sole of the heel to the ball or toes of the foot. It is worn mostly in closed shoes with a heel height under two inches. Because of the nature of the materials involved, very little alteration in shoe size is necessary. Rigid orthotics are chiefly designed to control motion in two major foot joints, which lie directly below the ankle joint. These devices are long lasting, do not change shape, and are usually difficult to break. Strains, aches, and pains in the legs, thighs, and lower back may be due to abnormal function of the foot, or a slight difference in the length of the legs. In such cases, orthotics may improve or eliminate these symptoms, which may seem only remotely connected to foot function. Soft Orthotics The second, or soft, orthotic device helps to absorb shock, increase balance, and take pressure off uncomfortable or sore spots. It is usually constructed of soft, compressible materials, and may be molded by the action of the foot in walking or fashioned over a plaster impression of the foot. Also worn against the sole of the foot, it usually extends from the heel past the ball of the foot to include the toes. The advantage of any soft orthotic device is that it may be easily adjusted to changing weight-bearing forces. The disadvantage is that it must be periodically replaced or refurbished. It is particularly effective for arthritic and grossly deformed feet where there is a loss of protective fatty tissue on the side of the foot. It is also widely used in the care of the diabetic foot. Because it is compressible, the soft orthotic is usually bulkier and may well require extra room in shoes or prescription footwear. Semirigid Orthotics The third type of orthotic device (semirigid) provides for dynamic balance of the foot while walking or participating in sports. This orthotic is not a crutch, but an aid to the athlete. Each sport has its own demands and each sport orthotic needs to be constructed appropriately with the sport and the athlete taken into consideration. This functional dynamic orthotic helps guide the foot through proper functions, allowing the muscles and tendons to perform more efficiently. The classic, semirigid orthotic is constructed of layers of soft material, reinforced with more rigid materials. Other Types of Orthotics Various other orthotics may be used for multidirectional sports or edge-control sports by casting the foot within the ski boot, ice skate boot, or inline skate boot. Combinations of semiflexible material and soft material to accommodate painful areas are utilized for specific problems. Research has shown that back problems frequently can be traced to a foot imbalance. It's important for your podiatric physician to evaluate the lower extremity as a whole to provide for appropriate orthotic control for foot problems.

Podiatrist Troy OH - Foot and Ankle Surgery Surgery on the foot, ankle, or lower leg is usually performed by podiatric surgeons and orthopedic surgeons specializing in the foot and ankle. Foot and ankle surgeries address a wide variety of foot problems, including: Sprains and fractures. Arthritis and joint disease. Benign and malignant tumors. Birth deformities. Bunions. Calluses and warts. Corns and hammertoes. Flatfeet. Heel or toe spurs. Neuromas (nerve tumors). Many foot and ankle surgeries today can be performed in the doctor's office or a surgical center on an outpatient basis. They frequently can be performed using local anesthesia, in some cases combined with sedation. Most foot surgeries require a period of immobilization after the procedures with protective devices, such as a bandages, splints, surgical shoes, casts, or open sandals. Limited weight bearing, elevating and icing the foot, and keeping the area dry are commonly required for the first two weeks following surgery until sutures are removed. Most surgeons will encourage post-operative exercise of the foot and legs to speed recovery. In addition, many patients need additional therapy or treatments after surgery in order to aid in the healing and recovery process. These may include physiotherapy, orthotic devices, and special footwear. After sufficient healing time, which varies from procedure to procedure, most patients can resume wearing their usual footwear. Visit our website: *******www.footandanklecare****

When a dog suffers carpal hyperextension they have a breakdown of the ligaments that support the back of the wrist. This results in its collapse from the normal upright position. Non-weight bearing lameness can result, which can progress to dog arthritis associated pain and lameness.

Plantar warts are benign growths that develop on the bottom of your feet caused by direct contact with the human papilloma virus (HPV) -- the same virus that causes warts on other areas of the body. Some people are more susceptible than others to HPV, and not everyone will develop plantar warts if they come into contact with the virus. Individuals with weak immune systems or damaged skin on the feet are at a higher risk for plantar warts. Plantar warts most often develop on the weight-bearing areas of the foot -- the heel or the ball of the foot -- causing sharp, burning pain. They can appear as a single wart (solitary) or a cluster of warts (mosaic). Common symptoms may include: •Pain or discomfort when walking or standing •Thick, scaly skin that often resembles a callus •Hard, flat growths with well-defined boundaries •Tiny black specks (clotted blood vessels) that often appear on the surface of the wart Most warts disappear with home care and do not require medical treatment. You can take steps to prevent and treat plantar warts, which include: •Changing your shoes and socks daily •Keeping your feet clean and dry •Avoid picking at warts as the virus may spread •Avoid direct contact with an individual who has plantar warts •Checking your child's feet periodically •Refrain from walking barefoot, especially in public areas like showers, swimming pools and locker rooms •Never ignore skin growths or changes in your skin Visit our website: *******www***lumbusfoot****
