Pain Management Treatment Options
At Kennedy Health, we offer comprehensive foot and ankle pain care and treatment options:
This includes rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE), along with the use of orthotics, braces, or splints to support and stabilize the foot and ankle.
Our experienced physical therapists can design personalized exercise programs to strengthen the muscles and improve flexibility, promoting healing and reducing pain.
Our medical professionals may recommend over-the-counter or prescription medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.
In some cases, corticosteroid injections may be administered to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation in specific areas of the foot or ankle.
For severe cases that do not respond to conservative treatments, surgical options may be considered. These can include arthroscopy, ligament repair, joint fusion, or bunionectomy, depending on the underlying condition.
Our medical professionals will conduct a thorough evaluation, including a detailed medical history and possibly imaging studies (X-rays, MRI, or CT scans), to determine the specific cause and severity of your foot and ankle pain. We prioritize personalized care and work closely with you to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and goals.
