Foot and ankle pain are common issues with various underlying causes. Some of the most prevalent foot and ankle problems include plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinopathy, ankle sprains, and flat feet.


Our foot specialists, serving Golden Grove, Fairview Park, and Glenelg, understand the complexity of foot and ankle pain, offering comprehensive solutions such as ankle sprain, rolled ankle, and Achilles tendinitis treatments. We provide specialized Achilles tendinitis therapies and physical therapy for sprained ankles and other pains to deliver effective results.


Plantar fasciitis is characterized by pain in the heel or arch of the foot due to inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue. Overuse, improper footwear, tight calf muscles, and obesity can contribute to this condition.


Achilles tendinopathy causes pain and stiffness in the Achilles tendon, which connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. It often occurs from overuse, sudden increase in physical activity, or poor footwear.


Ankle sprains, common among athletes, happen when the ligaments in the ankle are stretched or torn. Symptoms include pain, swelling, and difficulty walking.


Flat feet, also known as fallen arches, occur when the foot’s arch collapses. This can lead to pain, discomfort, and even knee and hip problems. Flat feet may be caused by genetics, injury, or certain medical conditions.


Other common foot and ankle problems include bunions, hammertoes, and neuromas. Bunions are bony bumps at the base of the big toe joint, while hammertoes involve toes curling downward. Neuromas result from compressed nerves in the feet, causing pain.


When experiencing foot or ankle pain, it is crucial to seek medical attention. A podiatrist can diagnose and treat these issues. Treatment options may involve rest, ice, physical therapy, custom orthotics, or, in severe cases, surgery.
