Foot & Ankle Services at CNOS
Our feet and ankles are the foundation of all of our daily activities. By simply going on with our daily routines, we subconsciously apply 3-4 times of body weight to the feet and ankles over many thousands of steps per day. This leads to frequent injuries that are often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Foot & ankle injuries and ailments can occur at any age. Whether you’re an active athlete or on your feet all day at work, foot & ankle conditions can take on many forms: fractures, sprains, arthritis, and more. When any of these occur, you want the best possible care from trained experts. It is crucial that each patient is thoroughly evaluated for an accurate diagnosis so a timely and effective treatment can be provided.
At CNOS, our specialists take a comprehensive look at your condition and treat it with personalized foot & ankle care—whether it’s a minimally invasive treatment or a complex reconstructive surgery. Our team includes specialty nurses, rehabilitation therapists, and athletic trainers who work together to get you back on your feet as quickly as possible.
Types of Foot & Ankle Conditions
Injuries & Ailments
Our foot & ankle specialists are prepared for any extreme, always working to help you heal as quickly and efficiently as possible. Visit CNOS for any of these conditions:
- Ankle sprain
- Ankle instabilities
- Broken foot
- Arthritis of the foot
- Flat feet can occur if the arches of the feet don’t develop after an injury or as a result of aging. This condition often leads to foot pain.
- Tailor’s Bunions
- Heel pain
- Sports or running related overuse injuries
- Fractures or stress fractures
- Ganglion Cysts
- Soft tissue masses
- Acute & chronic injuries
- High arch causes more weight to be placed on the heel and ball of the foot, which can lead to pain and instability
- Achilles tendon injury and pain
- Tendon pain
- Plantar fasciitis
- Work-related injuries
- Chronic pain or deformities
Discomfort from these conditions might start out as minimal, but often won’t be relieved without medical attention. If you’re experiencing any of them, we can help.
Fractures & Sprains
Overuse of feet or ankles can cause microscopic damage to the bone, known as stress fractures. While these might not be serious, they can lead to partial or complete fractures (broken bones) if left untreated.
We care for all types of metatarsal fractures and sprains: any injury that occurs in your ankle, feet, or toes. Highly trained specialists have the right expertise and procedures you need to feel better and keep moving.
When you’re always on the go, even a seemingly small toe injury can impact your overall well-being. Treating these ailments can be as simple as wearing a better pair of shoes. However, common problems like bunions, hammer toe, Morton’s neuroma, and ingrown toenails can require surgery if left unattended.
