Charcot

Charcot foot is a progressive degenerative condition that affects the joints in the feet.

It is associated with nerve damage (neuropathy) that decreases the ability to sense stimuli, including pain, and decreases muscular reflexes that control movement. As a result, the joints in the feet are subjected to repeated trauma and injury, causing progressive damage to the ligaments, cartilage, and bones.

More details are available from Podiatry Channel.
