Podiatry Care at Raleigh Orthopaedic
Foot and ankle pain can reduce or negate your quality of life. Raleigh Orthopaedic takes a multidisciplinary approach to treat all types of foot and ankle pain. Your podiatrist will work in tandem with our foot and ankle surgeons, pedorthists, and other team members to ensure the best outcome possible.
The foot and ankle are crucial to proper support, body alignment, and performance. It’s one of the most frequently injured parts of the body for athletes, for both new injuries and old. When managing sports injuries, our podiatry team will consider the type of injury, severity, healing time, along with your activity level and habits, when composing the right treatment plan. Also considered are foot type, biomechanics, footwear, and any external supports such as bracing or taping.
Trauma to the Ankle and Foot:
Our foot and ankle team can treat injuries common to accidents, falls, and work incidents. Less invasive treatment plans are the preferred method of approach for patients, however, sometimes surgery is needed to improve everyday function or athletic performance. Raleigh Orthopaedic can provide immediate trauma care at our orthopedic urgent care centers.
Orthotics and Pedorthics:
Our podiatrist will work with a pedorthist and certified fitter to create an orthotic for your foot tailored specifically to your support needs. Orthotics are a prescribed medical device created through casts, impressions, or scans that perfectly fit your foot. The benefits can be wide-ranging, as they help improve structural and functional characteristics of much of the musculoskeletal system.
Ankle and Foot Care for Diabetic & Rheumatology Patients
In addition to sports and trauma treatment for the foot and ankle, conditions such as diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis are common causes for chronic foot conditions. Our team will explore nonsurgical and surgical treatment options with you to ensure that issues such as alignment issues, weakened ligaments, foot deformation, and nerve damage are addressed with a treatment plan that ensures the highest outcome.
Foot and Ankle Surgery
During your appointment with your podiatrist, surgery may be recommended to improve your everyday daily activities.
