Foot & Ankle


What Causes Foot & Ankle Pain?

The foot and ankle form a complex structure containing more than 30 joints. They not only enable you to walk, but also facilitate basic movements like standing and flexing the foot, as well as more technical movements like running and jumping. When an injury or condition disturbs the normal function of any of these joints, it can result in pain, muscle weakness and limited mobility. Treatment options for foot and ankle conditions may include rest, activity modification, anti-inflammatories, orthotics, physical therapy and/or surgery.


Common injuries and conditions treated by Dr. Potts include:
