Foot and Ankle Q & A

What is the difference between acute and chronic foot and ankle pain? 

Acute pain is usually brought on by a sudden injury. It comes on swiftly and is difficult to ignore. The cause of acute pain is often easy to determine; it might be a sprain or strain that follows a twisted ankle or pain from a broken bone after dropping something on your foot. Sports injuries are a common cause of acute pain. 

Chronic pain usually develops over time. It can wax and wane in severity and might only flare up when you are placing weight on your foot or ankle. Degenerative conditions like arthritis can cause chronic pain. 

When should I see a medical professional for ankle or foot pain?

Some minor injuries will improve with a couple of days of rest and icing. If your foot or ankle pain lingers beyond a few days or is so severe you cannot place weight on the foot, it’s time to get a professional evaluation. 

Left untreated, foot and ankle pain can worsen over time. Small broken bones can heal improperly, and inflamed connective tissues can weaken and tear. It’s important to understand the extent of your injury and take steps to repair damage. 

What are some treatment options for foot and ankle conditions?

There are numerous ways to address foot and ankle issues, and the Tazewell team begins with a thorough diagnostic evaluation to determine the source of your pain and the best treatment approach. Splinting, casting, and boot immobilization are all excellent ways to support your foot and ankle as your natural healing abilities move forward. 

If more invasive treatments are necessary, the Tazewell team offers top-quality surgical solutions. Some options use state-of-the-art plates and screws to rebuild your damaged foot or ankle, and fusion surgeries are also an area of expertise. Rest assured no matter how complex your orthopaedic needs may be, the specialists at Tazewell Orthopaedic & Arthritis Clinic care can help.
