Foot and ankle injuries are common
You have an active lifestyle.
Whether you're a child, adult or active senior, the foot and ankle are constantly impacted during most activities of your life. Whether you're hiking, riding a bike or walking in high heels, your feet and ankles are involved.
The foot and ankle are among the most frequently injured areas of the body. The injury and pain can limit your participation in daily activities and recreational sports.
Thus finding an orthopaedic foot and ankle specialist, skilled in both non-surgical and surgical treatments, is of the utmost importance.
Treatments for foot and ankle injuries
The objective of treatment is to provide excellent comprehensive orthopaedic care in which the patient’s rehabilitation is the highest priority.
- Appropriate exercise
- Therapeutic shoes/appliances
These can substantially benefit many patients.
When injury or malformation of the foot or ankle is more severe and causes serious limitation in daily activities, surgery may be necessary.
Surgery can effectively re-establish the pre-injury functional and anatomic positioning of bones, ligaments, tendons, and nerves.
