Foot and Ankle Pain

At Injury Doctors NYC, we specialize in providing comprehensive care for individuals suffering from foot and ankle pain. Our team of experienced medical professionals is dedicated to diagnosing the root cause of your discomfort and implementing personalized treatment plans to effectively alleviate your symptoms. Below, we outline the common causes, diagnosis, and treatment options for foot and ankle pain:

Common Causes of Foot and Ankle Pain:

Plantar Fasciitis: Inflammation of the plantar fascia, a band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes, often resulting from overuse, poor footwear, or biomechanical issues, leading to heel pain and stiffness, especially upon waking or after prolonged periods of rest.

Ankle Sprains: Stretching or tearing of the ligaments surrounding the ankle joint, typically caused by sudden twisting or rolling of the ankle, resulting in pain, swelling, and instability.

Achilles Tendonitis: Inflammation of the Achilles tendon, the large tendon connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone, commonly due to overuse, sudden increases in activity, or tight calf muscles, resulting in pain and stiffness at the back of the heel.

Bunions: A bony bump that forms at the base of the big toe, often resulting from improper footwear, structural abnormalities, or genetic predisposition, causing pain, swelling, and deformity of the toe joint.

Stress Fractures: Small cracks or breaks in the bones of the foot or ankle, typically caused by repetitive stress or overuse, resulting in localized pain, swelling, and tenderness.


When you visit Injury Doctors NYC for foot and ankle pain evaluation, our skilled physicians will conduct a thorough assessment, which may include:

Medical History Review: Gathering information about your symptoms, medical history, previous injuries, and footwear.

Physical Examination: Assessing the range of motion, stability, strength, and tenderness of the shoulder joint, as well as identifying any signs of swelling or deformity.

Imaging Studies: Utilizing X-rays, MRIs, or ultrasound to visualize the bones, joints, and soft tissues of the foot and ankle, helping to identify fractures, structural abnormalities, or signs of arthritis.

Treatment Options:

Based on the diagnosis, our team will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and preferences. Treatment options may include:

Rest and Activity Modification: Temporarily avoiding activities that exacerbate foot and ankle pain and modifying footwear or movement patterns to reduce strain on the affected areas.

Physical Therapy: Engaging in targeted exercises and stretches to strengthen the muscles surrounding the foot and ankle, improve flexibility, and enhance stability and mobility.

Orthotic Devices: Using custom orthotic inserts, braces, or splints to support the foot and ankle, correct biomechanical issues, and alleviate pressure on affected areas.

Medications: Prescribing pain relievers, anti-inflammatory drugs, or corticosteroid injections to alleviate discomfort, reduce inflammation, and promote healing.

Minimally Invasive Procedures: Performing procedures such as corticosteroid injections, extracorporeal shockwave therapy (ESWT), or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to target inflammation, alleviate pain, and facilitate tissue healing.

Surgery: In severe cases or when conservative treatments fail to provide relief, surgical intervention may be necessary to repair damaged tissues, realign bones or joints, remove bony growths, or address underlying structural abnormalities.

At Injury Doctors NYC, our primary goal is to alleviate your foot and ankle pain and restore function, allowing you to return to your daily activities with confidence. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step toward a pain-free future.
