As the foundation for your lower body’s movement, the foot and its numerous bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles can be a source of significant joint pain.
Often associated with inappropriate footwear or poor alignment, pain in the foot is most commonly associated with trauma, deformities, or stress injuries.
Our orthopedic foot surgeon specializes in treating the following conditions:
- Plantar fasciitis
Other common foot conditions, such as ingrown toenails, corns/calluses, nail fungus, warts, flatfoot, and diabetic wounds are not treated by orthopedic surgeons at Anchorage Fracture & Orthopedic Clinic. Podiatrists, however, are trained in caring for these issues and also provide treatment for foot problems related to diabetes and other systemic illnesses.
If you are experiencing any of the following foot pain symptoms, it may be time to visit with a foot specialist.
- Pain in the heel, ball, or arch of the foot
- Inability to perform daily activities without foot pain
- Swelling or tenderness
- If the afflicted area looks deformed or if you have lost function
