Are you dealing with pain in your foot or your ankle and the discomfort is starting to become difficult to take? Whenever you have foot issues, it is not something that you should ever ignore. Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic is available to offer you help with whatever common foot injury treatment and surgery in Seattle you may be looking for.
Stress fractures of the foot and/or the ankle can be a small crack in the bone, or even severe bruising that occurs in the bone. A lot of stress fractures will stem from repetitive activity and/or overuse, and can be very common in people who are on their feet all day at work or take part in regular sports activities.
There can be a number of causes of a stress fracture, including poor conditioning, bone insufficiency, changes in surface area or even improper equipment or technique. When you meet with us at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic, we will be happy to go over what happened, as well as give you a physical examination as well as imaging tests to get a better look of the damage.
The goal of treatment is to always relieve your pain and help the fracture so that it can heal properly, allowing you to get back to your regular activities. There can be a number of non-surgical treatments that we will try in the beginning, including casting, protective footwear, physical therapy, and more. If it does not seem like the traditionally non-invasive measures are working, we will then go over your options in surgical intervention.
