What are common foot and ankle injuries?
The Achilles tendon is a strong fibrous cord that connects the muscles in the back of your calf to your heel bone. When your Achilles tendon is overstretched, it can tear partially or completely. In this instance, you might hear a pop, followed by an immediate sharp pain in the back of your ankle that affects your ability to walk properly.
The weight-bearing bones of the foot and ankle are especially vulnerable to stress fractures because of the repetitive forces they must absorb every single day. Fractures can range from a simple break in one bone, which may not stop you from walking, to several fractures that can force your ankle, heel or toe out of place and restrict you from placing weight on it.
Foot & Ankle Arthroscopy
When surgery is recommended, OKC Orthopedics, Sports & Pain Medicine utilizes arthroscopic surgery, a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage of the interior of the ankle or foot is performed using an arthroscope.
How are foot and ankle injuries treated?
Because foot and ankle injuries are so vast, treatment depends on the cause and includes surgical and non-surgical options. The experienced team at OKC Orthopedics uses advanced diagnostic technology onsite to pinpoint the cause of pain and assess the extent of the damage.
