An accurate diagnosis
While causes of some foot and ankle injuries may be obvious, such as injuries caused during sports, other foot and ankle issues can be harder to diagnose. Your foot pain may be due to overuse, weight gain, chronic conditions like diabetes or even poorly fitting shoes.
Some of the most common conditions we treat include:
- Joint dysfunction
- Plantar fasciitis
- Torn ligaments
In addition to these common conditions, our foot and ankle specialists are also experts at diagnosing and treating congenital conditions, such as clubfoot and flat feet.
The first step in diagnosing your condition is through a physical examination. Your doctor will evaluate your medical history and discuss your symptoms. If further evaluation is necessary to make an accurate diagnosis, your doctor may request imaging, such as an X-ray, CT scan or MRI. Learn more about imaging.
A treatment plan tailored for you
Once we determine what’s causing your foot or ankle pain, our specialists will create a customized treatment plan that’s based on your needs. This plan will consider important factors such as your age, overall health and activity level. Our doctors offer a wide variety of treatments ranging from noninvasive techniques such as physical therapy, medications and bracing, to advanced surgical techniques including minimally invasive options.
