Foot & Ankle

Foot and ankle injuries happen every day. Coming down from a basketball shot onto another player's foot, turning awkwardly while playing tennis, or missing the last step on a flight of stairs can lead to painful foot and ankle sprains, dislocations, and fractures.

Repetitive stress on the foot and ankle can also result in injury. Chronic conditions such as tendonitis, plantar faciitis, and arthritis contribute to pain in the ankle and foot areas, especially if you have experienced an injury in the past.
