Addressing Foot Problems to Reduce Pain
Have you been to your doctor complaining of foot pain, only to have been given a prescription and sent away? There are a number of reasons why people experience foot and ankle pain, from constant stress to congenital disease. Whatever the case may be, it is vital that you do not simply take pain medication which covers up your symptoms.

Pain Management for Foot Conditions
The type of treatment we can offer you to treat and manage your pain depends on your unique situation. When you come into our office to see us, the first step is to undergo a physical examination and diagnostic procedures to diagnose your condition. We may then recommend a conservative treatment like physical therapy. If your condition is severe or recurring, you may require a more extensive, invasive form of treatment like surgery.
A few of the other types of pain management treatment we offer for foot problems include:
- Anti-inflammatory medication
- Steroid medications
- Ankle braces or other devices
- Orthotic devices
