Foot & Ankle
SPORT treats Plantar Fasciitis, Bunions, Hammertoe and other conditions
Foot and ankle pain affects an estimated eight in every 10 Americans at some point in their life, usually occurring due to injury or overuse. Athletes are particularly prone to foot and ankle injuries, especially those who are involved in sports that involve a lot of running, jumping, and quick change of direction.
Just a few of the common causes of foot and ankle pain include:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Lisfranc (midfoot) fracture
- Metatarsal (forefoot) fracture
- Toe fractures
- Stress fractures
- Ankle arthritis
- Achilles tendonitis and tear
- Ankle sprains
- Ankle and heel fractures
Fractures can occur in different areas of the foot and ankle and require treatment, often in the form of immobilization with a cast, splint, or walking boot. Surgery may be required for severe fractures, high ankle sprains, or tendon tears, as well as foot deformities such as bunions and hammertoe.
Physical therapy without surgery or post-operative rehab is also a typical component of treatment for foot and ankle injuries. Therapy can to help you regain strength and mobility while you heal. You may also need to use crutches or a knee scooter until you can bear weight on your foot and ankle again.
