If your injuries hurt or keep you from giving 100% during activity, then avoid taking any chances. Our expert team will provide you with an accurate and quick diagnosis and create an effective treatment plan curated to meet your unique condition, your activity level, and your sport.

Treatment Options For Common Foot And Ankle Injuries

Mild sports injuries are often treated through the R.I.C.E method (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation). When combined with anti-inflammatory medication, it can reduce pain and relieve swelling. 

But remember, everything you do plan should be closely monitored by our expert doctors to ensure your ankle and foot respond to the treatment effectively. The proper protocols for treating your injury are largely dependent upon the thorough examination of your ankle and foot.
