What We Specialize In

Ankle Sprains and Strains - A sprain affects the ligaments that connect bones, while a strain affects the tendons that connect muscle to bone. Both generally respond well to conservative treatments, including rest, icing, compression, and physical therapy. 

Ankle Fractures - An ankle fracture is a break in any of the bones in the ankle. It can usually be treated with conservative measures such as casting and physical therapy, but in more severe cases, a surgical procedure may be necessary. 

Ankle Arthritis - Arthritis can affect a number of joints in the foot, leaving them swollen and painful. A proactive treatment plan can effectively eliminate the symptoms and help patients stay on their feet.
