Foot and Ankle Pain Q & A

What causes foot and ankle pain?

You have dozens of bones and multiple joints and hundreds of connective tissues in your feet and ankles. Any of these delicate components can become damaged due to injury, overuse, or degenerative condition. Some of the most common causes of foot and ankle pain include:

  • Sports injuries
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Arthritis or bursitis
  • Bone fractures
  • Strains or sprains
  • Bunions or hammertoes
  • Flat feet or high arches

In some cases, you could have more than one ailment causing your foot and ankle pain. This is why it’s so important to have a thorough evaluation and get started on personalized treatment before your condition (or conditions) worsens.

When should I see a podiatrist for foot and ankle pain?

Since it’s so difficult to stay off your feet and ankles to let them heal, chances are your pain is just going to worsen until you get treatment. It’s time to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Hayman at Complete Foot & Ankle Care if you experience:

  • Limited range of motion
  • Tenderness or warmth
  • Redness, swelling, or inflammation
  • Inability to point or flex your foot
  • Difficulty bearing weight on the area

Because these signs and symptoms can certainly lower your quality of life and keep you from doing the things you enjoy, getting proper treatment is important.

How are foot and ankle pain treated?

Dr. Hayman designs your foot and ankle treatment plan after thoroughly evaluating you and looking at any essential imaging, like X-rays.
