SOLUTIONS TO YOUR ANKLE & FOOT PROBLEMS

QUALITY CARE FROM DR. CHU

The foot and ankle are made up of many bones, ligaments, muscles, joints, tendons and nerves. The complex structures within the feet and ankles are designed to carry the body’s weight and perform a wide range of activities. Strengthening the leg muscles of the calf and shin will increase the stability of the ankle joint and help reduce ankle and foot pain. Foot and ankle pain is a common occurrence but it is important to determine the true cause of foot or ankle pain to initiate the appropriate treatment.

ANKLE SPRAIN TREATMENT

Ankle sprains are usually treated with ice, rest, compression, elevation and anti-inflammatory medication. After the initial injury heals, a physical therapy regimen can help to strengthen the ankle. If the injury is severe, arthroscopic ankle surgery can be performed to stabilize the joint.

ANKLE ARTHRITIS

Arthritis is inflammation and swelling around your joints and nearby soft tissue. It can cause pain and stiffness in any joint in the body and is common in the small joints of the ankle.

BUNIONS

A bunion is a painful bony bump that forms on the inside of the foot at the joint at the base of your big toe. In most cases, bunion pain is relieved by wearing wider shoes with adequate toe room and using other simple treatments to reduce pressure on the big toe. If nonsurgical measures do not relieve your symptoms, Dr. Anson Chu may recommend bunion surgery.

POSSIBLE CAUSES OF ANKLE & FOOT PAIN:

A deformity in the big toe that can be treated with anti-inflammatory medications, wider shoes as well as minimally invasive surgical treatments to correct the deformity.

Foot deformities caused by contracted tendons or muscle/ligament imbalance in the lesser toes causing them to bend and not lay completely straight. Hammer toes can be treated by changing footwear or wearing shoe inserts to help relieve pain and pressure. There are also surgical options to correct the deformity.

Having flat feet as an adult can be extremely painful, can limit your mobility and can cause ankle and achilles tendon problems. Certain measures can reduce the discomfort of flat feet such as proper shoe inserts. It is also possible to rebuild the arch of the foot with specialized surgical techniques.

Can lead to foot and ankle instability, which may cause pain and increase the risk of ankle problems such as repeated sprains. Most people with high arches can reduce foot and ankle stability by wearing ankle braces or specialized shoe inserts, or custom orthotics.
