Foot & Ankle

Our Foot & Ankle Specialists at Orthopaedic Center of South Florida are recognized experts in the diagnosis and treatment of foot & ankle injuries and conditions.

Foot

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. Often associated with inappropriate footwear or poor alignment, pain in the foot is most commonly associated with trauma, such as a fracture; disease, such as osteoarthritis; deformities, such as bunions; or stress injuries.

 

If you are experiencing any of the following foot pain symptoms, it may be time to visit with a foot specialist.

  • Numbness in the foot

  • Pain in the heel, ball, or arch of the foot

  • Inability to perform daily activities without foot pain

  • Change in sensation or color of skin or toenail

  • Swelling or tenderness

  • If the afflicted area looks deformed or if you have lost function

A consultation with a foot doctor is the best way to differentiate between a severe foot condition and a minor foot injury.

At Orthopaedic Center of South Florida, we understand that foot pain can have a significant impact on your daily life, and we will work with you to develop a treatment plan specific to your needs. Our foot experts know that proper diagnosis is paramount in determining the most effective treatment plan for your individual condition.

Ankle

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.

However, agitation and discomfort may also occur due to overuse injuries, which can range from mild joint pain to Achilles tendonitis (medically referred to as tendinitis).

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. Due to the constant stress and frequency of use, ankle pain generally does not subside without treatment.

 

At Orthopaedic Center of South Florida, our ankle doctors understand that proper diagnosis is paramount in determining the most effective treatment plan for your individual condition.
