Your feet are the foundation of almost every movement you make. Each foot and ankle contains 29 bones that must work together to support your body weight. Structural problems of the foot and ankle can cause tremendous amounts of pain and discomfort in every step, and make everyday living difficult. While pain can be experienced virtually anywhere in the foot, the most common sites of foot pain are in the heel and ankle.

Common Conditions

Heel pain can be due to a multitude of conditions including plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, and heel spurs. Pain experienced in the ankle can be a sign of an ankle sprain, arthritis, gout, ankle instability, ankle fracture, or nerve compression. In more serious cases, pain in the foot can be a sign of improper alignment or an infection.

Foot pain can be accompanied by symptoms such as redness, swelling, stiffness, and warmth in the affected area. Whether the pain can be described as sharp or dull depends on the foot condition behind it. It is important to visit your local podiatrist if your foot pain and its accompanying symptoms persist and do not improve over time.

Foot & Ankle Treatment

Our goal is for the patient to be able to return to full function and activities. Our team of orthopaedic surgeons, specialists, and therapists specializing in foot and ankle problems use a multidisciplinary approach in caring for patients. This means working with you to diagnose your condition and develop a custom treatment plan. Management options can range from simple exercises to reconstructive surgery – but we prioritize non-invasive options before considering surgery.

If you are experiencing persistent foot pain, it is important to consult with your doctor to determine its cause and location. Make an appointment with a foot and ankle specialist at Fort HealthCare Orthopaedic Associates, or see your primary care provider.
