The foot and ankle are two of the most versatile and complex areas of your body. They include an intricate network of muscles, tendons and ligaments and are literally your foundation for movement. When everything is functioning properly we hardly give them a thought. But when we experience foot or ankle pain, it’s often impossible to ignore.
The first step toward lasting relief is seeing an orthopedic specialist who can diagnose and evaluate your pain and recommend treatment options. You can first expect a thorough physical examination, which may include imaging scans. From there, your doctor will recommend either a non-operative form of foot care or, for serious issues, surgery.
