What is the Lateral Plantar Nerve?

#AnchorageAK It’s amazing to study all of the nerves, muscles, tissues and bones of the feet. Each one has an important role, and if afflicted, can cause lots of pain.
I’m Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher, an orthopaedic specialist in Anchorage, and I would like to talk to you today about the lateral plantar nerve.
The lateral plantar nerve has both superficial and deep branches that stretch out across the foot. It is part of the tibial nerve, and affects the muscle called the flexor digiti minmi brevis, whose function is to flex the little toe. When the lateral plantar nerve combines with the medial plantar nerve, a painful condition develops called morton’s neuroma.
If you think you have morton’s neuroma, or are experiencing other issues with foot pain, visit me, Doctor Rindlisbacher, at my office here in Anchorage.

What is the Medial Plantar Nerve?

#AnchorageAK Most of us don’t give thought to the nerves in our feet, at least until those nerves are pinched or are affected by other disorders.
I’m Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher, a foot doctor in Anchorage, and I would like to teach you today about a very important nerve in the foot called the medial plantar nerve.
The main job of the medial plantar nerve is to support the longitudinal arch of the foot and also to flex the joint of the big toe. The name of the muscle that is directly affected by, or dependent on, the nerve is called the flexor hallucis bervis. When the medial plantar nerve connects to the lateral plantar nerve, a painful condition develops called morton’s neuroma.
If you are dealing with foot pain and suspect that it might be a nerve condition, come visit me, Doctor Rindlisbacher, at my podiatry office in Anchorage.

What Are the Functions of Foot Muscles?

#AnchorageAK Hello, this is Doctor Mark Rindlisbacher, your favorite podiatrist in Anchorage. Today I would like to talk to you about foot muscles. Everyone knows why muscles of the arm are important, but not many people know why foot muscles are necessary.
Muscles in the feet are of utmost importance to the body as they serve two functions: they allow your foot to bend and move, including your toes, and they provide support and structure for the arches, which help you to keep your proper balance.
Sometimes repeated stress can cause injury to the muscles of the foot. If you’ve been experiencing foot pain, I invite you to visit my office in Anchorage.
