Foot and Ankle Pain

Overview

Foot and ankle pain can have many causes, ranging from an acute injury like an ankle sprain to a chronic condition like arthritis or gout. Other possible causes: plantar fasciitis, flat feet (fallen arch), hammertoe, diabetic nerve damage, tendinitis, bone spurs, bursitis, injury or infection.

How Our Doctors Diagnose

In addition to a physical examination and thorough discussion of the pain you’re experiencing and your medical history, we have an array of tests and imaging to help diagnose the source of your pain: x-ray, MRI, CT scans, and bone scan. We may run a blood test for gout or remove a small amount of fluid from the joint (arthrocentesis) to check for infection.

  • Epidural steroid injection (ESI)
