At Ozark Foot & Ankle, PLC, we provide all of our patients with comprehensive pediatric medical and surgical services. Our Springdale AK foot care doctor can treat many sports related foot and ankle injuries as well as other foot conditions.
Depending on the type of sport, many of our patients suffer from these sports related injuries: ankle sprain, Achilles tendon injuries, shin splints, blisters, breaks, ankle sprains and plantar fasciitis. Heel pain is also common in sports athletes and people who play sports. Treatment for these conditions include therapy, surgery, pain management and medication. Your Springdale AK foot care regimen may include physical therapy as well. Our main goal is to restore proper function to the foot and to create mobility again as quickly as possible. We recommend surgery only if it is the best method to correct the condition. Some can be performed at our offices, while some may be performed at the local hospital. Some surgeries for sports related foot injuries include bunion surgery, joint replacements, surgery for heel pain, and correction of spurs and toe misalignment.
Many athletic foot injuries can be difficult to properly diagnose at first. The foot is constantly under enormous stress and can be subject to injury at any given time. The foot absorbs large impacts in sports. Our Springdale AK foot care doctor is knowledgeable in foot anatomy and sports injuries and can properly treat your sports related problem. If you have acute swelling, soreness or have dislocated or broken any part of your foot or ankle, you should call our offices immediately for an emergency appointment. We can then provide you with immediate pain relief and treatment options depending on the severity of your condition. Many times, the quicker the injury is caught the better chances of complete recovery and the need of surgery diminished.
