Foot Pain & Injuries Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists in Illinois
Pain on Heal and Back of Foot Pain
Ankle and foot injury is likely the most under-treated problem that many people face and many times an injured person will attempt their own treatment – potentially making the problem worse. A misdiagnosed, under-treated ankle or foot injury can eventually become long-term or chronic problem. We can help.
A Board-Certified physician from Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists will diagnose what the pain on your heal or back of your foot actually is: an ankle sprain, or something more complicated like a partial tear, torn ligament or fracture. A board-certified podiatrist will determine exactly what you need and what the treatment protocol should be.
Only a podiatrist experienced in complex foot disease and reconstructive surgery can accurately diagnose the true nature of “pain in foot” problems. We interact and involve our patients with their treatment options. An expert doctor from Advanced Foot and Ankle Specialists is experienced in determining the true nature of all foot and ankle problems.
