Heel Problems - Heel Fissures
Heel fissures, or cracking of the skin of the heels, is an often painful condition that can cause bleeding. Open-backed sandals or shoes, which allow more slippage around the heel while walking, are often the culprits. The skin thickens as a result of the friction. Skin lotions can help with reducing the dryness associated with the condition.

What are the most prevalent foot and ankle injuries?

Ankle sprains. Sprained ankles are one of the most common injuries in sports. Because the inner ankle is more stable than the outer ankle, the foot is likely to turn inward (ankle inversion) from a fall, tackle, or jump. This stretches or tears ligaments; the result is an ankle sprain.
