Orthopedic Care: Foot & Ankle


Where would we be without our feet and ankles? These complex structures help us stand, balance and get from place to place, and every piece of their maze-like systems needs to be in perfect working order to avoid issues with related areas.

How can you determine whether your pain is foot or ankle related? Only an orthopedic expert can tell you for sure, but you might experience frequent sprains or twists, minor foot deformities or general aches in the ankles, toes or heels. Your pain might also radiate to – or concentrate on – the hips and lower back.

Some foot and ankle pain comes from an everyday necessity: wearing shoes. Even the world's most comfortable sneakers reduce your natural range of motion, and years of wear can send your joints, muscles and tendons into a fit. This is especially problematic for women; stilettos tend to warp the weight distribution and cause uneven pressure on the foot.

When Should I Visit a Phoenix Foot and Ankle Specialist?

We generally recommend consulting an expert sooner rather than later, especially when it comes to foot and ankle pain. Even the most minor conditions can cause major issues down the line, and untreated disorders can even lead to other musculoskeletal complaints in the hips, thighs and knees. If your pain hasn't responded to self-care techniques in a matter of days, schedule an appointment with a TOCA specialist as soon as possible.
