Some of the most common foot and ankle injuries are:

  • Plantar Fasciitis: This is one of the most common causes of heel pain, caused by an irritation and inflammation in the tissue comprising the foot arch. The heel pain aggravates with prolonged standing and walking.
  • Athlete’s foot: Athlete’s foot commonly arises due to a fungal infection of the feet, which is associated with itching, redness, scaling, cracking, and blistering.
  • Hammer toe: This foot condition involves deformity of the second, third, or fourth toes, leading to a hammer-like appearance of the toe. You might need to see an experienced foot and ankle surgeon in Frisco to see if surgery is required. This might be needed for the treatment of the condition in case conservative measures like changing your shoes or using orthotics fail.
  • Achilles tendinitis: Patients with this condition experience pain around the heel, due to damage to the Achilles tendon, which is the largest tendon in the body. Non surgical treatment includes rest, ice, NSAIDs, exercise, and physical therapy. If the condition does not improve after 6 months of conventional treatments, surgery might be required.
  • Turf toe: This is a condition involving a sprain of main joint of the toe as a result of hyperextension of the toe. In rare conditions, such as when athletic level is affected, surgery might be required.
  • Sprained ankle: This is a highly common ankle injury affecting approximately 25,000 people every day. The condition is associated with ankle pain and can be treated with various non-surgical treatments.
