Foot / Ankle Pain

Foot and Ankle pain can be caused by trauma, injuries, sprains and degeneration of bone, ligaments, and articular surfaces. Specific tendon and ligament injuries as well as normal use and the wear-and-tear over time can cause acute and chronic repetitive stress injuries and ligament weakness. The history and description of symptoms are critical in arriving at the correct diagnosis. Early treatment of these conditions can often minimize the need for surgery and chronic pain. The foot and ankle are particularly prone to injury and painful conditions as they bear the full weight of the entire body and are continually used and stressed by both intermittent and constant forces. Plantar fasciitis is a common foot ailment that is specifically addressed under conditions treated on this website.

Regenerative medical techniques are a new, non-surgical and modern approach to the treatment of painful foot and ankle conditions. Much of the scientific basis for these treatments comes from stem cell research. Repairing damaged tissues and promoting the healing of tendon and ligament injuries specifically applies to the foot and ankle.

To not be able to move or get out of bed for about three years, it just took my heart and my soul – it took everything I loved… I’m doing Kung Fu …  getting ready for competition again… You can’t put a price on feeling good. You can’t put a price on your health.
