Ankle Pain Treatments By Lexington Podiatry

Ankle pain can come in many different forms. Think everything from throbbing and aching to shooting, sharp pains.

Unfortunatly, ankle pain is also one of the areas that you tend to try to explain away the pain the most.

Walk It Off 

If your wrist hurt as much as a hard sprain, you wouldn't think twice about going to the doctor to get that looked at. However, we will calmly try to walk off the pain of a nagging ankle injury for weeks. We're putting all our weight on this sore ankle and could be doing more damage.

If your ankles hurt, that affects just about everything you do from walking and exercising to sleeping and even sitting down comfortably.

What Causes Ankle Pain? 

Did You Know?

Oftentimes, severely rolling your ankle can have more long-term effects than a clean break.

Dr. Freels discusses ankle sprains and the severity of them in the video below.  She explains how to identify, avoid, and treat ankle sprains.

Staff was extremely friendly and professional. They took us back immediately and no waiting for doctor to come in. Dr Settles-Carter was amazing with my little girl. She took her time and explained every detail to my daughter. As we were leaving my little girl said Dr Settles-Carter was the best doctor ever. Coming from a 10yr old.

It took some work, and patience, but my feet are much better now. Dr. Freels worked with me to find exercises, and more importantly, the right shoe to wear. So nice not to dread going into work, for the pain of simply walking. Despite what another review here says, they've never tried to sell me any shoes there, have always left the choice up to me.

The staff was very courteous. However, the care provided by Dr. Carter and the staff in the back was exceptional! I finally had answers for my health concerns and issues and a course or plan of treatment including the costs of the services they provide. I especially liked the hours of operation...I can see a doctor for the treatment I need without having to use my personal and sick days! Love the flexibility. Lastly, the ambiance esthetics were relaxing and beautiful.

The entire staff at Lexington Podiatry was very welcoming and friendly. Jill went out of her way to make sure my daughter was taken care of. We appreciate being seen so quickly (it would have taken weeks to have seen an orthopedist for her foot injury). Now, she is on the road to recovery! Great office, thanks everyone!

Had a great experience! Everyone was very nice, it was clean, the doctor took time to listen to me. She showed me my x-rays and explained them to me. I would recommend them to family and friends.
