Morton Short Toe
when the first metatarsal is shorter than the 2nd metatarsal. Causes shift from the ideal weight-bearing patterns by literally shifting the weight. This is particularly true in releve and pointe work.
Misalignment of the first toe. In this condition, the two phalanges of the first toe angle off to the lateral side of the foot. This can result from wearing shoes that are too narrow at the time when the bones of the foot are ossifying.
1 of 2 bones of the lower leg. This bone is the larger of the two bones and is the primary weight-bearing bone of the lower leg.
1 of 2 bones of the lower leg. This bone has no role in weight bearing and nothing to do with the knee.

small ligament on the inside of the knee
Osgood- Schlatter disease
inflammation and irritation of the tibial tuberosity
Medial condyle is taller than the lateral condyle. Dancers with this condition find it impossible to stand with feet touching in parallel without overlapping knees or hyperextending knee
Lateral condyle is taller than medial condyle
Chondromalacia of the Patella
The cartilage under your kneecap (patella) is a natural shock absorber. Overuse, injury or other factors may lead to it- a general term indicating damage to the cartilage under your kneecap.
