An ankle sprain is one of the most common injuries in the lower extremity where one or more ligaments are injured. Typically, this occurs when you step down wrong and accidentally roll your ankle to the outside or inside. Severity of the ankle sprain depends on whether the affected ligaments are only stretched (Grade I), partially torn (Grade II), or ruptured (Grade III).
First line of treatment for an ankle sprain is:
Any ankle sprain requires prompt medical attention and diagnosis to prevent further injury and complication. If you or anyone you know suffers an ankle injury contact Right Step Foot Care at (614)-964-9550.
A wart is a virus that invades your skin causing thickening in that area. It may or may not be painful, but usually will be painful when you squeeze the lesion from side to side. You may be able to see small black dots throughout the thickened skin. It will usually bleed easily once shaved down in the office. Sometimes they resolve on their own, but often need to be treated with a strong topical medication. Warts can be contagious and spread to other areas of the foot or to other family members.
A callus forms due to an area of pressure. There may be a prominent bone, or area of rubbing or friction, that the thickened skin is trying to protect. If a large amount of callus builds up in one area, it can become very painful and feel like you are walking on a rock. These are usually treated by shaving them down and using padding or inserts in your shoes to decrease pressure and friction on the area.
Either of these conditions can be easily treated in the office. If you aren’t sure if you have a wart or callus, or are having foot pain of any kind, please call our office for an appointment: (937) 972-0072.
We have all bumped or dropped something on our toe in our lifetime. How could such a little toe hurt so much, we often ask ourselves. Regardless of the injury, if you hurt your toe don’t ignore it. First line of treatment is RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to the affected toe/foot. Taping the injured toe to the adjacent toe to prevent motion can help with pain.
Ultimately though a podiatrist should look at your toe and get X-rays. If the toe is broken it must be treated correctly to prevent further problems with healing, walking and shoe gear. Although a toe is small, serious long lasting complications can arise if left untreated. Please call us at (614) 964-9550.
