The foot is an incredibly complex part of the body, containing 28 bones (and sometimes more than that as your body adapts to its environment), so it’s only fitting that The Personal Injury Guru dedicates an entire episode to talking through common foot injuries and treatments with a local expert. Dr. Robert Abady is an accomplished foot surgeon who is based in St. Petersburg, and he sits down with David Papa to cover some of the most important and interesting information there is to know about foot injuries. Whether you have chronic foot pain or experienced a recent injury due to an accident, this episode will give you a rundown of what to expect from the injury itself and its treatment.

Foot injuries and ailment aren’t just caused by one-off accidents; they can often be the rest of chronic stress on specific parts of the foot. One of the most commonly used joints of the foot is the one located on the big toe. This joint is used very often, making it susceptible to a great deal of pressure. Over time, it’s not uncommon for everyday activities – like kicking a ball incorrectly or certain types of dancing – to cause chronic stress on that joint, leading to arthritis down the line. Accidents are, however, extremely common causes of foot injuries and, because they’re so sudden, it’s difficult to prepare. If you’ve sustained a foot injury in an accident, the first thing your doctor will do is to run a few tests: from x-rays for simple injuries to MRIs for more complex ons, there are a variety of ways for doctors to see exactly what’s going on and how best to proceed with treatment. Dr. Abady talks through the details of specific common injuries, like turf toe, with the help of a detailed diagram. To learn more about what to expect from a foot injury, make sure you take a listen to the full episode.

Whether you’ve experienced a foot injury or not, being involved in an accident can turn your whole life upside down, and you have options for getting justice. Schedule a free one-on-one consultation with David Papa to learn more.
