What causes ankle and foot pain?
Injury to any of the ankle bones, ligaments or tendons and arthritis can cause ankle pain. Foot and ankle injuries are common among elite athletes and the general population.
The first course of treatment involves following a RICE regimen, which includes resting your foot or ankle, using ice and compression to reduce swelling, and elevating the ankle/foot. Your doctor may suggest physical therapy and wearing a brace.
When to see APMI doctor
If you have an injury or a degenerative condition, such as arthritis, your doctor may opt for platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. This innovative procedure uses your body’s own blood platelets and growth factors to enhance your body’s innate ability to heal, improving function and mobility while reducing pain.
