We know it can be incredibly frustrating when you are hurt during a sporting event or while working out. Given the fact feet and ankles play such an integral role in most physical activities, they have a particularly high injury risk.
When this happens, you may be worried about needing surgery, but we have some good news – most foot and ankle injuries are effectively resolved with conservative (nonsurgical) care.
Depending on the nature and severity of your injury, we may be able to create a conservative treatment plan that consists of options like physical therapy, hot/cold therapy, medication, custom orthotics, or bracing.
Of course, that being said, there are some instances wherein surgical intervention might be recommended. Fortunately, these tend to be rare in comparison to the injuries we are able to teat without foot or ankle surgery.
