Foot & Ankle Pain

Foot & Ankle Pain in Tavares, FL

We don’t often think about how much our feet and ankles do for us day in and day out until pain and other issues impact our ability to get around. If foot or ankle pain is impacting you, we know that nothing is more important than getting answers and an effective treatment plan from a qualified medical professional. Let Dr. Breanna Ferguson and the team at Mid Lake Foot and Ankle provide you with the care you deserve.

Causes of Foot Pain

There are many injuries, conditions, and disorders that can lead to everything from acute to chronic foot pain. It’s important to be able to pinpoint the cause, but often this requires a podiatrist’s evaluation to make an accurate diagnosis. Some causes of foot pain include:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Heel spurs
  • Arthritis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Fractures
  • Flat feet
  • Bursitis
  • Bunions and hammertoes
  • Morton’s neuroma

Causes of Ankle Pain

The ankle is delicate, making it prone to injury. Since ankle weakness and instability can occur if certain ankle problems aren’t properly addressed, it’s important to see a podiatrist if you are dealing with ankle pain and swelling. Common causes of ankle pain include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Stress fractures
  • Bursitis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Chronic lateral ankle pain

When to See a Podiatrist

Any new or worsening foot or ankle pain should be evaluated by a podiatrist to prevent further complications. Unfortunately, many people just assume that sore or painful feet or ankles are normal; however, everything from repeated stress to genetics can predispose you to certain foot and ankle problems. It’s important that we correct these issues through custom orthotics, physical therapy, and proper footwear to prevent injury.

Dr. Ferguson and the team at Mid Lake Foot and Ankle can help you not only figure out the cause of your pain but also craft a custom treatment plan that will help provide a fast, effective recovery. From sports-related injuries to chronic conditions such as arthritis, our team treats a wide range of injuries, medical conditions, and diseases that impact the health and function of the feet and ankles.

Treating Foot and Ankle Pain

How we treat your foot and ankle pain will depend on the cause of your pain and the severity of your symptoms. Minor injuries will benefit from rest, pain relievers, icing, and elevation, while more severe injuries may require bracing, custom orthotics, physical therapy, and even surgery (in rare cases). When you come into our practice for an evaluation, Dr. Ferguson will discuss your treatment options with you so you know you are getting the most effective treatments and care you need to treat the issues you’re dealing with.

If you’re experiencing foot and ankle pain, you must contact your podiatrist as soon as possible to begin treatments so that you can recover and feel comfortable in your daily life again.
