How is foot pain diagnosed?

To find out what’s causing foot or ankle problems, Dr. Jones reviews your medical history and discusses your symptoms. He examines your feet and ankles while you’re sitting, standing, and walking or running, in some cases.

Endurance Foot and Ankle offers state-of-the-art running and gait analyses. Dr. Jones might recommend you complete blood tests, X-rays, ultrasounds, or other imaging procedures to detect or rule out specific problems.

What are the treatments for foot pain?

Some of the many treatments available for foot pain include:

Home care

Things you can do at home to reduce foot pain include icing the affected area, compression, elevation, and resting your feet. You might also wear a brace or cast.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy exercises and stretches can strengthen tissues in your feet to speed up healing and reduce the risk of future problems. Endurance Foot and Ankle offers cryotherapy, deep tissue release, and other conservative treatments along with physical therapy.

Medications

Taking medicines can reduce inflammation and foot pain or treat the underlying cause.

Injections

Cortisone and other types of injections help reduce inflammation and foot pain, as well as speed up healing.

Custom orthotics

Custom-fitted orthotics can make your feet feel more comfortable, improve athletic performance, improve your gait, and reduce pain and the risk of complications.

Wound care

If you have non-healing open wounds on your feet, Dr. Jones offers medications, bandages, ointments, tissue grafts, dead tissue removal, and surgeries to help the wounds heal.

Wart removal

Wart removal at Endurance Foot and Ankle can reduce discomfort caused by warts on your feet.
