Foot, Ankle, Podiatry

Ankle and foot pain have any number of causes that can literally slow you down. Whether you are experiencing sudden foot or ankle pain or a more chronic condition such as arthritis, the orthopedic foot and ankle specialists at Central Indiana Orthopedics will work to find the appropriate treatment to get you back on your feet.

Ankle Pain

Ankle pain and swelling is most commonly associated with trauma and sports-related injuries, such as an ankle fracture, or an injury to the ligaments of the ankle, such as an ankle sprain. However, agitation and discomfort may also occur due to overuse injuries, which can range from mild joint pain to Achilles tendonitis.

Foot Pain

While the shoes we wear are often blamed for foot pain, foot pain is most often associated with trauma (e.g. foot fracture), disease (e.g. osteoarthritis), deformities (e.g. bunions) or stress injuries.

Common foot and ankle injuries and conditions treated by our orthopedic foot and ankle specialists and surgeons include:

  • Achilles tendonitis or Achilles tear
  • Ankle fracture or ankle dislocation
  • Ankle sprain
  • Arthritis of the foot or ankle
  • Bunions
