Foot and Ankle Fracture Treatment
A fracture is a break in a bone. It may be a crack in the bone (a stress fracture) or a complete break; the bones may shift out of place or break the skin. Fractures in the bones of the foot and ankle cause a variety of symptoms and require different treatments depending on the location and severity of the break as well as the patient’s overall health.
Achilles Tendon Repair
An Achilles tendon rupture is a common injury that involves a tearing of the thick band of tissue that connects the calf muscle to the heel and helps with nearly any kind of foot movement. The Achilles tendon can be partially or completely torn and most commonly occurs as a result of repeated stress on the tendon.
Ankle Arthritis Treatment
Ankle arthritis is not as common as other forms of arthritis; however, it is still a painful condition for those affected. Arthritis is classified as an inflammation of a joint and can develop as a result of several factors, but most commonly occurs as a result of aging.
Ankle Ligament Reconstructions
An ankle sprain is a common injury that occurs when the ankle is twisted or turned, and results in torn ligaments within the joint. This injury often causes pain, swelling and bruising, and may lead to ankle instability as the condition is prone to recur.
Plantar Fasciitis Treatment /
Heel Pain Treatment
There is a ligament along the bottom of the foot called the plantar fascia that stretches from the heel to the base of the toes. If the ligament is forced to stretch beyond its limit, it may become inflamed and result in heel pain.
