Foot Treatments

Pain or injury in one or both of your feet can make it impossible for you to stand or walk. Common foot conditions include bone spurs, plantar fasciitis, sprains, strains or fractures.

Our Orthopaedic team offer a wide variety of options to treat foot injuries and conditions so you can get back to being mobile again. 

Non-surgical treatment for foot conditions

Your doctor may recommend lifestyle modifications and medical treatment options before considering surgery for your foot condition. These may include: 

  • Assistive devices, such as a cane for walking or custom-made brace to minimize discomfort. 
  • Medications to reduce swelling and decrease pain.
  • Physical therapy to increase range of motion and improve strength and flexibility.
  • Low impact activities (such as swimming) to replace high impact activities (such as jogging or tennis). 
  • Weight loss to reduce stress on the bones in your feet.

Surgical treatment for foot injuries

St. Elizabeth Healthcare offers all types of foot surgery procedures, including:

  • Bone spur removal to relieve the pressure on surrounding tissues and nerves. 
  • Bone fracture repair using pins, screws and plates to hold the bones of your foot in place while they heal. It is recommended that you see an orthopaedic surgeons for any foot and ankle fractures.
