Our specialty-trained, board-certified ankle doctors at our Foot & Ankle Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of ankle injuries and conditions.
Most commonly associated with trauma, such as a fracture, or a sports-related injury, such as a sprain, ankle pain may also occur as a result of overuse and range in pain from mild to severe. Treatments for ankle pain also vary from conservative nonsurgical treatments to minimally invasive surgery.
Patients who suffer from ankle pain may visit a primary care physician or podiatrist, though an orthopedist, who is medically trained to treat injuries and conditions of the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments of the entire body, can also undergo additional specialized training through a fellowship to become a foot and ankle specialist.
If you're suffering from an ankle injury or condition, it may be time to visit a foot and ankle doctor at Tri-County Orthopedics.
