Which Ankle and Foot Conditions Can Interventional Pain Management Treat?

Your body weight is concentrated on the relatively small bones, complicated tendons, and soft tissues of your ankles and feet. Therefore, any injury or ailment in those areas can cause a significant reduction in your quality of life.

Previously, treatment options merely provided support or masked the symptoms, and the more radical choice of surgery involved significant risk. Now, more options are available to treat the causes of ankle pain or foot pain and more adequately manage chronic conditions.

How Do You Diagnose Ankle and Foot Pain?

If you are experiencing pain or discomfort in your ankles or feet, it is a good idea to talk with a medical professional sooner rather than later. Many injuries and medical conditions can be treated more easily if caught early. The longer joint injuries go untreated, the more damage that can accumulate.

When you come to the Advanced Relief Institute, your doctor will perform a physical examination of your ankle and foot. Based on their observations, they may diagnose you or prescribe a series of tests. These may include X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and more.

Once your doctor has the necessary information, they will provide you with a diagnosis and explain your treatment options.

What Are My Ankle and Foot Pain Management Treatment Options?

Depending on where your ankle or foot pain is, one or more treatment options may be viable. Pain on the top of your foot, pain in the arch of your foot, and pain in the heel of your foot all require different treatments.

Treatments may include (but are not limited to):

  • Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (known as RICE)
  • Heating pads and warm foot baths to relax muscles
  • Modification of activities and behaviors to prevent further injury
  • Reduction of your weight to reduce physical strain and pressure
  • Over-the-counter pain relievers to treat symptoms
  • Prescription painkillers to treat more severe symptoms
  • Shoe inserts, prescribed shoes, leg braces, or mobility-limiting boots
  • Cortisone injections to reduce pain and inflammation
  • Surgical treatment

Is There a Recovery Period After Interventional Pain Management for Ankle and Foot Pain?

Some treatments for foot and ankle pain will require a recovery period. Other treatments rarely require significant downtime other than refraining from vigorous exercise for one to three days.
