Reasons to Visit a Foot Injury Specialist

If your foot is bothering you, call our clinic to speak with a foot injury specialist. Even if you have a primary care physician, it is still best to see someone who works with the feet on a daily basis. Think of your family doctor as the person who can help to treat common illnesses and will then refer to someone for specific complaints.

This is necessary oftentimes because a generalist does not have the depth of experience that someone like a podiatrist would when it comes to issues concerning the feet. As such, we are best equipped for treating your condition and improving it.


It is important to note that early treatment is critical with any injury. It is far too easy to delay visiting the doctor hoping that the injury will simply heal itself. Typically, injuries will only become worse if they are left unattended. Even if they do begin to heal, the chance of them healing correctly is slim and this can lead to additional trauma later on. For this reason, it is best to visit a specialist right away.

Our office is conveniently located and we provide excellent service to new and existing patients. We understand that visiting a specialist can seem intimidating and we do our best to help patients relax so they can focus on healing and recovery.


Some patients are concerned that visiting a specialist will ultimately result in needing to have surgery. Very often, this is not the case. In fact, we offer many treatment solutions and only discuss surgery as a last resort. We believe that it is best to exhaust all non-invasive treatment options first and routinely do so.

Examples of our treatment options include:


After a foot injury, it can be necessary to slowly and purposefully stretch. This will help to loosen the muscles and to prevent the foot from becoming re-injured, especially since the adjoining muscles are likely to become tense to compensate for the injured area. Stretching should be done under our supervision to ensure that it does not exasperate the problem.


As a foot injury specialist, we know which foot, ankle and leg exercises can work to strengthen the area without causing additional damage. This is an important part of injury prevention.


Something simple like arch supports can often provide the assistance the foot needs during the recovery process. We often recommend that patients use non-invasive support measures during and after recovery.


When necessary, muscle relaxers and even shots can be used to help relax the area to reduce or eliminate pain and tension.


Sometimes surgery is required to repair the damage done to the foot. While always used as a last resort, it is important to have surgery as an option when necessary. A foot injury specialist can provide surgical intervention, something a family doctor cannot do. This makes it wise to visit our clinic after an injury.


We would be happy to assist you.
