Treatment for your foot and ankle issues
Whether you’ve suffered a recent injury while exercising or have been struggling with increasing stiffness in your ankle over a number of years, it can be sensible to seek further medical assessment and advice. Our Consultants have vast experience managing and treating foot and ankle health and will help get you out of pain and back to better function once more.
They’ll carry out a clinical examination of your foot and ankle to help determine the degree of movement and flexibility you currently have. It also helps them to assess the degree of any pain and/or stiffness in the joints and to see how it is affecting your mobility.
Depending on your specific symptoms, further diagnostic tests may be needed to help diagnosis or to assess the extent of any injury or disease. Our on-site imaging facilities include X-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound, so we can easily arrange these for you if required.
Many foot and ankle conditions can be treated effectively without the need for surgery. Other conditions may need surgery to successfully relieve your symptoms and restore function.
Non-surgical treatments include rest, ice, pain relief medication, physiotherapy and bracing/splinting of the foot or ankle. Surgical options range from a type of keyhole surgery known as arthroscopy through to “open” surgery to repair a nasty or complicated fracture.
Your Consultant will always discuss the treatment plan they recommend, talking with you through any questions or concerns you may have. Any treatment will be tailored to your specific requirements to ensure you receive the best results possible.
By choosing to visit us for your foot and ankle treatment, you’ll benefit from:
Your Consultant will organise any diagnostic tests needed to fully investigate your symptoms and then outline all treatment options for you promptly. If surgery is needed, they will arrange that for you without delay.
