Klumpfoot is also called PEVA, which is an abbreviation of the Latin name pes equino varus adductus. It is a congenital malformation which means that the heel is turned inwards and the forefoot is directed downwards towards the body's midline. The heel is also high up while the foot and toes point downwards, so-called tip foot.

Some children walk in or out with their feet. It is mostly due to changes in hip mobility and usually go away by itself over time. Sometimes the forefoot may be twisted so that the toes point inwards. Then stretching exercises are often enough, but sometimes the foot may need to be plastered.
Under the foot, in the hollow foot, sits a wide and thick tendon which is an important support. If you overload the tendon, you may get a pain in the tendon attachment under the heel. Occasionally, a build-up of the bone is formed on the underside of the heel. It looks like an X-ray spur, and is therefore called a heel spur.
It is common to get sore throats in connection with physical activity such as running or jumping. For example, the pain may come if you have exercised in a different way than you usually do, or when you have trained a little harder than before.
If you have a hammer toe, one or more toes next to the big toe are curved. The small joints in the toe are bent so that the toe is similar to a hammer. Because it can cause the shoe to rub against the top of the toe, a sore hardening is often formed there, a so-called corn.
Hallux valgus means that the big toe is oblique and points towards the other toes. Sometimes the toe joint is also pressed, which causes a lump on the side of the foot. It can make it difficult to find shoes that fit and do not pinch the foot.
In the foot are many small bones, joints and tendons that can cause trouble in the feet and lower legs of children. It can be anything from flat feet that do not need treatment, to deformities that require multiple surgeries and plaster adjustments. Pain in the heel is common and usually transient.
There are cartilages in the body's joints that give the stature and allow the bones of the skeleton to slide towards each other. Osteoarthritis causes an imbalance between the degradation and the structure of the cartilage.
Trigger finger, also called spring finger, is most common in older people but also occurs in infants. It usually turns out that the child can not stretch on the thumb. Occasionally the thumb will lock. This is because the bend tendon to the outer end of the thumb has thickened and hooks itself into the tendon.
Mouse arm is a collective name for various problems that you can get from your hand and arm if you often use a computer mouse. The problems can manifest in different ways, partly depending on which part of the arm or hand you are in pain, and whether it is muscles, ligaments, tendons or nerves that hurt.
The carpal tunnel is a channel that exists between several legs and a strong ligament in the palm of the hand. Through the canal, an important nerve, the median nerve, and tendons pass to the muscles of the fingers. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by nerve constriction when the space has decreased.
Fingers that are not separated belong to the most common deformities in the hand. Children born with finger syndactylia need surgery because it affects the function and growth of the fingers and hands.
There are cartilages in the body's joints that make the joint steady and allow the bones of the skeleton to slide towards each other. Osteoarthritis means that the cartilage breaks down faster than it builds up. Most people who get osteoarthritis are older than 50 years.
