Foot & Ankle Pain
When something goes wrong with our feet and ankles, it can make life difficult. Many times, this is because our feet and ankles bear the weight of our entire body every single day.
Many of our patients, who have had no success with steroid injections, trigger point injections, acupuncture, and chiropractic care, find relief for the first time after receiving our treatments which sometimes include minimally invasive surgery.
Some of the more common foot and ankle conditions we’ve successfully treated include:
- Achilles tendonitis: The Achilles tendon connects the muscles of your calf to your heel bone. It’s the largest tendon in the body and may become inflamed through overuse, arthritis, or ill-fitting shoes.
- Plantar fasciitis: Heel pain, often, worse in the morning when you get out of bed and your feet first hit the floor. It occurs when the plantar fascia, the thick band of tissue that runs from the heel bone to the toes, becomes inflamed.
- Morton’s neuroma: Pain in the ball of the foot.
- Hallux limitus and hallux rigidus: Restriction of movement, pain, and inflammation in the big toe.
How they treat it
The go-to remedies for conventional doctors include drugs, both OTC and Rx. Taking these drugs to mask the pain carries plenty of risks even with well-known over-the-counter drugs such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen. The risks include harm to the liver and stomach, bleeding, kidney, and more.
How we treat it
At NEXGEN Orthopedics, we treat shoulder pain using an integrative approach which in some cases may include ultra-minimally invasive surgery. Using physical therapy and other therapies, we aim to accelerate and enhance the recovery process for our patients.
