Common Foot and Ankle Injuries We Treat:

Ankle Sprains: Often occurring during physical activities, ankle sprains result from a sudden twist or turn that stretches or tears the ligaments.
Achilles Tendonitis: This overuse injury involves inflammation of the Achilles tendon, the band of tissue connecting calf muscles at the back of the lower leg to your heel bone.
Plantar Fasciitis: Characterized by a sharp, stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot, it results from inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.
Bunions: A bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe, causing the big toe to lean toward the second toe rather than pointing straight ahead.
Stress Fractures: These are tiny cracks in a bone, often caused by repetitive force, such as from overuse in sports or a sudden increase in activity.

How Would My Foot and Ankle Pain be Diagnosed?

Understanding the symptoms is key to early and effective treatment. Some common symptoms of foot and ankle injuries include pain, swelling, bruising, and difficulty walking or bearing weight on the affected foot or ankle.

At Orthopedic Health of Kansas City, we use a combination of advanced diagnostic tools to accurately identify the root cause of your foot or ankle pain. These may include:

Physical examinations
MRI scans
CT scans
Treatment Options

Our approach to treatment varies depending on the nature and severity of the injury. Treatment options include:

Rest and Ice: For minor injuries, rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) are often effective.
Physical Therapy: Customized exercises and rehabilitation programs help restore strength and mobility.
Medication: Pain relief and anti-inflammatory medications can help manage symptoms.
Orthotic Devices: Shoe inserts, braces, or splints support and align the foot and ankle.
Surgery: In cases where conservative treatments are not effective, surgical intervention may be necessary to repair damage and restore function.
