Expert Treatment for Foot Injuries
With the wide range of foot and ankle conditions, treatment will depend on your specific problem and medical history. Simply adjusting your shoes can help many common conditions. In addition to the right fit, proper footwear should help your specific problem. Pads, inserts, and orthotics provide comfort and proper alignment.
Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) and anti-inflammatory medicine also offer foot and ankle pain relief. Corticosteroid shots or surgery are sometimes necessary if other treatments do not help your problem. Physical therapy can help your injury and prevent other foot and ankle conditions.
