WHAT IS HAMMERTOE?
A toe that does not bend normally at the middle joint and points down in the shape of an upside down ‘V’ is called a hammertoe. It is usually seen in the second toe. At first, the toe will keep some of its flexibility and lie flat when barefoot, only appearing as a hammertoe when wearing shoes.
WHAT ARE ANKLE SPRAINS?
An ankle sprain happens when the ligaments in the ankle are stretched or torn. This usually affects the ligaments on the outside of the ankle. The ankle will be sore and possibly a little swollen because of the ligament damage. For serious sprains, the ankle will be very swollen, bruised, and too painful to walk on.
