Regardless of which problem causes your foot and ankle pain, ROC wants you to know you don’t need to suffer. They can diagnose the reason for your foot and ankle pain and help with a tailored recovery plan.

How do you determine the cause of foot and ankle pain?
Your ROC doctor reviews your medical history and discusses your symptoms as they examine your foot and ankle. You’ll typically need imaging such as an X-ray, MRI, or ultrasound after the exam to verify your diagnosis.

X-ray reveals changes in your bone, while an ultrasound shows the soft tissue around your bones, including your tendons and ligaments. MRI shows even more detail, including damage both inside and outside your joints, for example, inner-joint cartilage damage from arthritis.

How is foot and ankle pain treated?

At ROC, treatment plans vary with the injury.
Non-surgical approaches
Non-surgical approaches can include bracing or splinting, anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, and activity modification, as well as other conservative treatments.

If you still have serious foot or ankle pain after these treatments, your doctor may recommend options such as corticosteroid injections or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy in some situations.
Surgical approaches
There are many surgical solutions for foot and ankle pain. One common foot and ankle surgery is arthroscopy. Your surgeon can repair tissue damage, extract necrotic tissue, and make other changes to restore your foot and ankle.

For ankle joint replacement, ROC uses the state-of-the-art Scandinavian Total Ankle Replacement (STAR™) system.
