Adler Footcare offers many foot and ankle pain management options
If you’re experiencing chronic foot pain it’s important to seek treatment as soon as possible so the problem doesn’t lead to something more severe. Treatment depends on the type of foot problem and severity of the condition causing the pain. Before deciding how to treat your foot pain, a qualified podiatrist at Adler Footcare will want to get to know you and will work together with you to provide a full assessment of the issues causing you pain. It’s important to us to see the whole picture. That’s why you can expect us to ask a lot of questions so that we can determine when the pain started, how often it occurs, what you’re doing when you experience the foot pain, and your medical history.
There are many foot pain management and ankle pain management options available; some are conservative treatments that are used to treat a variety of conditions causing foot pain, and some are surgical procedures used to treat specific conditions. We’ll give an overview of some of the pain management options available. You can read in more detail about options for specific conditions in our Patient Education Library, where we’re continuously adding new information for you.
