ANKLE & FOOT Pain

Whether your ankle and foot pain is caused by a misstep or from diabetes, it’s important to get an accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment plan.

WHAT IS ANKLE AND FOOT PAIN AND HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE IT?

The ankle functions as a “hinge” where three bones and several ligaments join together and the foot forms the foundation that supports the entire body. Because the lower leg and foot bear so much of the body’s weight, ankle and foot injuries can happen in an instant.

Wearing shoes without good support and frequent walking or running on hard or uneven ground can aggravate the ankles and feet—one misstep can lead to injury.

Foot pain can also be caused by diabetes. Therefore, it’s important to treat foot and ankle pain quickly and correctly to prevent any future complications.

Each case of ankle or foot pain is unique, so it’s important to treat the ankle and/or foot within the context of how it interacts with the leg and knee. After an accurate diagnosis has been made, we can provide personalized treatment recommendations. Those treatments may be non-surgical or surgical.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING

[Since my bulging disc correction] I haven't had pain in my leg at all and had only a little pain in my back from my surgery, but zero pain in my legs, the sciatica is gone.

Edward, age 55, bulging disc injury

Today my back and hip feel tremendous. My legs are still a bit weak, possibly from nerve damage that occurred prior to surgery. I’m going to physical therapy 3 times per week. I was back at work on November 15th, 3 weeks after surgery.

Robert, age 58,
history of disc herniation and previous surgeries

Nobody likes to be injured and neck surgery is a delicate procedure, but Dr. Massoud explained what needed to be done, which made me feel more comfortable. [Post-surgery] I felt great, and today the pain is completely gone.

Francisco, Age 48, Cervical Injury
