Symptoms

Symptoms of foot and ankle conditions include:

  • Persistent or intermittent pain
  • Swelling, numbness, or tingling
  • Redness or swelling of joints or tendons
  • Noticeable bump or deformity on foot
  • Restricted movement of toes
  • Rashes or growths

If the pain becomes debilitating or affects your mobility, you should schedule an appointment with one of our experts as soon as possible.

Diagnosis

Our orthopaedic specialists can often diagnose a foot disease or condition based on a physical history or examination.

Sometimes X-rays or an MRI will be ordered to make sure there are no breaks or fractures or to see where tissue is wearing thin.

Treatments

Our team of physical therapists, pedorthists, and orthopaedic surgeons works together to create a comprehensive treatment plan that is individualized for your needs.

We offer patients conservative approaches, including physical therapy, prescription orthotics, platelet-rich plasma injections, and ultrasound-guided cortisone injections.

If conservative measures fail to control foot and ankle pain, you may need surgery. Our foot surgeons offer the latest in reconstructive techniques, including minimally invasive or arthroscopic surgery, open surgery, and realignment surgery of foot deformities.
