While the main question that may be on your mind right after a major foot injury will be how soon can you get back on your feet, it is important that you are able to go through with the right level of care and involved physical therapy. Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic will happily go over all of your options when it comes to common foot injury treatment and surgery in Arlington.
Our orthopedic ankle and foot surgeons have all of the skills necessary to not only identify and treat your foot fractures and other conditions, but you will also have the ability to get the best surgical intervention possible. Even if it will be weeks or even months before you can get back to your regular daily activities, we will do all that we can to make the time pass quickly.
Once you go through with surgery, your surgeon will outfit you with a cast, boot, splint, or some sort of post-operative shoe that will give you the support that you need. It is also important to keep your foot fully elevated as much as you can. This will help you to reduce both the pain and any swelling that may be present.
A couple of weeks after surgery, we will see you back in our offices so that we can check out the wound and to make sure that everything is healing properly. We may also be able to discuss all of your options for physical therapy at that time so that you can start to formulate an outlook at what your healing will be like moving forward.
