Our specialty-trained, board-certified foot doctors at our Foot & Ankle Center of Excellence at Tri-County Orthopedics are recognized and respected experts in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of foot injuries and conditions.
Foot pain can result from injury, overuse, or inflammatory conditions involving any of the many bones, ligaments, or tendons in the foot. Arthritis is also a common cause of foot pain, and if an injury to the nerves of the feet occurs, this may result in intense burning pain, numbness, or tingling—otherwise known as peripheral neuropathy. Treatments for foot pain also vary, from conservative nonsurgical treatments to minimally invasive surgery.
Patients who suffer from ankle pain may visit their primary care physician's office or a podiatrist, though an orthopedist, who is a medical doctor 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 a foot injury or condition, it may be time to visit a foot doctor at Tri-County Orthopedics.
