FOOT & ANKLE PAIN

Foot / Ankle Pain

Although often overlooked, your feet and ankles are very important and are subject to considerable strain or trauma due to the strong forces affecting them daily. Additionally, foot or ankle pain can have many causes. It can occur from injury, overuse, sprain/strain, abnormal gait, arthritis, gout, shoe issues, neuropathy, tendonitis, infections and nerve compressions. Because of the large variety of causes, a careful examination is essential in successfully finding the cause of the pain to correctly institute an effective treatment. In addition to a thorough examination, often x-rays, MRI studies and ultrasound are required to confirm the cause and diagnosis.

There are many types of treatments advertised to the public including expensive devices and months of therapy, but good medical treatment is most often the only successful way to treat and fix the condition. Regenerative injections have been shown to be very effective, inexpensive and a rapid means to restore the foot and ankle to a normal function while additionally relieving pain. Only in rare cases is surgery necessary.

Procrastinating medical treatment can worsen the condition, as inflammation can cause further damage. If you have not found the answer to your questions, please feel free to Contact Us.

To not be able to move or get out of bed for about 3 years... it took everything I love. The staff at Palm Beach Spine & Diagnostic Institute gave me a lot of hope. It took a few weeks and I started to feel better. It was miraculous. I danced... hiked ... doing kung-fu again ... it's definitely worth it. You can't put a price on feeling good. You cannot put a price on your health.
