Foot & Ankle Injuries Q & A

What causes foot and ankle injuries?

You may develop a foot or ankle injury from any number of causes. Sports injuries are a common cause of traumatic foot and ankle injuries, like fractures and sprains. A slip and fall may also cause a sprained ankle or a broken toe.

Foot and ankle injuries may also develop from overuse or the general wear-and-tear that occurs over time. You may also injure your feet or ankles if you wear poor-fitting shoes or spend a lot of time walking or standing on hard surfaces. 

No matter the cause of your injury, Orthopaedic Associates, Inc, can provide the care you need. The practice also provides workers’ compensation care, managing foot or ankle injuries that happen at work.
