Olympia’s Foot & Ankle Specialists
Foot and ankle injuries and conditions can be especially problematic because pain typically becomes worse when standing or when walking. This can decrease the quality of life and be extremely frustrating.
The specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates evaluate, diagnosis, and treat all injuries and conditions of the foot and ankle, including but not limited to the following:
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Ankle Replacements
- Bone spurs
- Complex Fractures
- Deformity Correction
- Heel pain
- 1st MTP Resurfacing
- Minimally Invasive Bunion Correction
- Plantar fasciitis
- Stress fractures
Customized treatment plans are used to provide patients with the symptom relief they need to return to their normal lives. In most cases, a combination of treatment options is used to provide maximum results. The most common nonsurgical treatment options include the following:
- Immobilization (a cast, splint, walking boot, or walking shoe)
- Physical therapy
- Activity modification
Injections may be used to help resolve pain that does not get better after nonsurgical treatment.
Surgical intervention may be recommended to treat some injuries and conditions that have not responded to the treatments above. The Fellowship Trained and Board Certified Foot and Ankle Specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates utilize the latest in both arthroscopic and traditional foot and ankle surgical procedures.
