As of June 2014 this site contains over 1900 pages of information devoted strictly to problems involving the foot, ankle and lower leg. Approximately 1700 of these pages are answers to questions that readers have previously asked.
Because so many pages have been devoted to actually answering questions, there is a good chance your question has been asked before. So rather than searching around this site or any other site, for that matter, you might just find it easier to ask your question in the search box provided and see if an answer comes up.
This particular search box only searches this site making it a search engine for this site. So, if any part of your question or description has been mentioned before on this site, you will receive that information.
So....go ahead, type in your question. If you have a diagnosis from your doctor, type that in. If you have no idea what your problem is but are having symptoms (pain in ankle, redness on top of foot, tingling in big toe, for example) type in your symptoms. Have problems with a previous surgery or trauma, type that in.
You will be amazed at the results you receive.
This search box is here solely for your convenience.
I've been doing some aggressive research lately (it's how I found your incredible website) and realize now that my symptoms are not consistant with the diagnosis.

Thanks for a most interesting website, which has helped a lot.
I usually do my research on the Mayo clinic website. I think your website is the most informative site I have found when researching foot pain.
I thank you for putting together this incredible website.
....I have been told that it is not hard enough to be cut off. Please help, I am not sure what to do now! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL AND VERY HELPFUL SITE!
You have an unusually clear, informative and well-written website for laypersons. Thank you for that.

First, I'd like to thank you for all the information that you provide on your website and the opportunity to write to you.
First, I want to let you know that you have the best web site I've found related to foot issues. (The only thing I had difficulty finding was the "ask a question" page.)
I received the orthotics Monday afternoon and began wearing them Tuesday. After two days I would say that I have noticed a huge improvement in the discomfort I have been experiencing. My foot feels better than it has in months.
I greatly admire someone like you who would donate and dedicate so much time and effort to helping strangers with no compensation. Truly, it is uncommonly kind. And your site is so intelligently arranged.

I used to work for a podiatrist (front desk) back during summers in
college years ago, so I know the benefits of good care. Again, I want
to thank you for an EXCELLENT website. It was so great to get to your
site (top of google search) and actually find all the answers I needed
EASILY and QUICKLY! Clearly you put a ton of work into it and I really
All the best,
By the way, millions of websites could use yours as a guideline on how to organize information and make the site user-friendly. Kudos to you!
Thank you for your very interesting and informative site!
