Foot Injuries

Foot injuries are all too common. If you have suffered a foot injury, you may find that the issues go beyond pain. If you’re left with limited mobility, it could hamper your career and quality of life. The good news is that by working with a podiatrist, or foot doctor, you may be able to resolve your injuries and get back to living life on your own terms again. If you’re looking for assistance with a foot injury in Boca Raton, FL, get in touch with Dr. Stephan Silva.

Common Causes of Foot Injuries

Unfortunately, foot injuries are quite common. If you haven’t suffered one yet, you probably will at some point in the future. The good news is that these injuries are often treatable, and in many cases, the treatment is relatively straightforward. That said, you may have to spend some time off of your feet or may need to curtail certain activities, like playing sports, while you heal up.

Foot injuries often occur while you’re engaged in intense physical activity. If you spend a lot of time on your feet at work or play sports, you may be more prone to foot and ankle injuries. Injuries can be especially common if you spend a lot of time walking over uneven ground, like trails deep in the forest or construction sites.

Poor shoes are a common cause or contributor to foot and ankle injuries. If your shoes don’t provide good traction and enough support, you may be prone to slip and falls, rolled ankles, and other problems. A podiatrist can help guide you toward the right shoes if you need assistance. Other things, like customized orthotics, may provide even more support. If you need help with selecting shoes or addressing a foot injury in Boca Raton, FL, come see Dr. Silva.

How Podiatrists Address Foot Injuries

In some cases, a foot injury may be treatable with ice and rest. Anti-inflammatory medicine, painkillers, and other medications could speed up healing. You may also want to use a brace to reduce the risk of aggravating your injury.

With some injuries, it may be necessary to undergo surgery. Ultimately, it’s best to work with a foot doctor to determine the best treatment methods. If you need assistance with a foot injury in Boca Raton, FL, call 561 241 9447 to reach Dr. Silva.
