For mild to moderate foot and ankle pain, you may want to try home remedies such as rest, ice, compression, elevation (RICE), and over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen.

How are foot and ankle pain diagnosed?

First, the Elite Sports Medicine + Orthopedics team asks about your foot and ankle pain, including how it began and what other symptoms you have. They carefully examine your foot, ankle, and lower leg.

On-site imaging tests like an X-ray or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan help the Elite Sports Medicine + Orthopedics team pinpoint the cause of your condition while also recommending the best course of treatment.

What treatments do our foot and ankle doctors offer?

The Elite Sports Medicine + Orthopedics team takes a conservative approach to treatment. Depending on the cause of your foot and ankle pain, non-surgical treatment may include:

  • Physical therapy and stretching exercises
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Steroid injections
  • Custom orthotics
  • Changes in footwear
  • Wearing a walking boot or brace
  • Using assistive devices like crutches
  • Casting or splinting
  • Activity modification
  • Padding or strapping the foot

If your pain is severe or conservative treatment doesn’t work, our foot specialists may recommend surgery.
