Foot and Ankle

Foot and ankle pain may be caused by many different factors ranging from sports injuries including sprains and strains, to stress fractures and other trauma, as well as tendonitis, or other inflammatory conditions related to aging and arthritis. When you experience pain in your foot or ankle and it limits your ability to do the things you want to do, it is time to see your orthopedic specialist at Westlake Orthopaedics, who have extensive training in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of foot and ankle disorders.

Common conditions include:

  • Achilles Tendonitis or Tear
  • Foot or Ankle Fracture
  • Ankle Sprain/Instability
  • Arthritis
  • Bunion
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Lisfranc Dislocation
  • Morton’s Neuroma
  • Ganglion Cysts
  • Stress Fractures
  • Toe Fractures
  • Hammer Toe
  • Mallet Toe
  • Hallux Rigidus

Symptoms of foot and ankle pathology include:
Any recent injury resulting in swelling or deformity, inability to bear weight, or limited range of motion.

Where the pain is:
Pain may be present in the toes, across the arch of the foot, forefoot, in the ankle, or up the calf and shin.

How we diagnose:
We first perform a physical exam and look for any signs of musculoskeletal pathology. We perform x-rays in the office to evaluate the bones to see if there is evidence of arthritis, fracture, or other issues which could contribute to the presenting symptoms. If there are signs of foot or ankle pathology, we may perform additional diagnostics, such as Ultrasound, an MRI or CT.

Treatments:
Based on the history of the symptoms and physical exam findings including diagnostic testing, treatments may include oral medications and/or physical therapeutic modalities, injections, minimally invasive arthroscopy, or more advanced surgical treatment.
