At Ozark Foot & Ankle, PLC, we provide all of our patients with comprehensive pediatric medical and surgical services. Our Springdale AK foot care doctor can treat many sports related foot and ankle injuries as well as other foot conditions.

Depending on the type of sport, many of our patients suffer from these sports related injuries: ankle sprain, Achilles tendon injuries, shin splints, blisters, breaks, ankle sprains and plantar fasciitis. Heel pain is also common in sports athletes and people who play sports. Treatment for these conditions include therapy, surgery, pain management and medication. Your Springdale AK foot care regimen may include physical therapy as well. Our main goal is to restore proper function to the foot and to create mobility again as quickly as possible. We recommend surgery only if it is the best method to correct the condition. Some can be performed at our offices, while some may be performed at the local hospital. Some surgeries for sports related foot injuries include bunion surgery, joint replacements, surgery for heel pain, and correction of spurs and toe misalignment.

Many athletic foot injuries can be difficult to properly diagnose at first. The foot is constantly under enormous stress and can be subject to injury at any given time. The foot absorbs large impacts in sports. Our Springdale AK foot care doctor is knowledgeable in foot anatomy and sports injuries and can properly treat your sports related problem. If you have acute swelling, soreness or have dislocated or broken any part of your foot or ankle, you should call our offices immediately for an emergency appointment. We can then provide you with immediate pain relief and treatment options depending on the severity of your condition. Many times, the quicker the injury is caught the better chances of complete recovery and the need of surgery diminished.

Bunion Doctor

Bunion Surgery in Fayetteville

Many of us use our feet every day, and then there are those of us that rely on our feet to do our jobs, to run our errands and to do everything that we do in life. No matter what, foot ailments are a big issue and can be quite painful. Among some of the more common foot ailments are bunions, and while some bunions can be treated acutely and are relatively mild, this condition can also worsen and may even require surgery. Here at Ozark Foot & Ankle, PLC we can help when it comes to diagnosing foot problems and can even offer bunion surgery in Fayetteville if needed.

While bunions are fairly common, they can vary in severity and it is usually this factor that will determine what kind of treatment will be needed in order to solve the issue. A bunion forms when the joint of the big toe begins to drift away from the other joints of the foot. This causes the foot to widen, and the big toe itself will begin to lean inward and it may overlap with the second toe instead of laying parallel to it. Both of these structural changes can make wearing any kind of footwear increasingly uncomfortable and difficult. If the condition is not that bad, then one of our podiatrists, Dr. Peck or Dr. Brantley, may simply prescribe a change of footwear or the application of specifically designed insoles that will help cushion your foot properly. But sometimes, severe bunions can only be treated with bunion surgery in Fayetteville. This procedure is known as a bunionectomy and is a procedure that requires general anesthesia. The surgery mainly involves realigning the bone of the big toe and cutting the ligaments at the joint. For even worse bunions, then an osteotomy may be required, where a portion of the bone is cut and wires or screws may be surgically inserted in order to keep the toe in line.

If you believe that you may have a bunion, feel free to call us here at Ozark Foot & Ankle, PLC to learn more about or to schedule a meeting regarding bunion surgery in Fayetteville. The sooner you have a bunion looked at, the more likely you will not need surgery, but our podiatrists here at Ozark Foot & Ankle, PLC will be able to take care of you no matter what state the bunion is in.
