Foot & Ankle Injuries

Our doctor at Shady Grove Orthopaedics is a recognized leader in the diagnosis and treatment of foot and ankle injuries and conditions. As the foundation for your lower body’s movement, the foot and its numerous bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles can be a source of significant joint pain. Ankle pain is most commonly associated with trauma and sports-related injuries, such as a fracture, or an injury to the ligaments of the ankle, such as a sprain.

When Should You See an Ankle Doctor?

If you think you may be suffering from an ankle injury or condition and are experiencing any of the symptoms listed below, it may be time to visit a foot and ankle specialist.

  • Sudden intense pain
  • Pain when you’re NOT bearing weight
  • Pain that persists for more than two weeks
  • Swelling that persists or worsens after 2-3 days
  • Limited range of motion due to stiffness, weakness, or swelling

You should also seek treatment with an ankle specialist if you begin to feel feverish or if the area reddens, becomes warmer, and feels even more sensitive, as these are signs of an infection.

 

Conditions include, but are not limited to:

  • Foot & ankle injuries
  • Achilles tendon rupture
  • Common toe deformities
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Total ankle replacements
  • Trauma
  • Fracture or sprain
