Foot and Ankle Surgeon Nowra – Understanding feet and ankles

Your feet have a complex structure. Each foot is made up of 26 bones and more than 30 small joints. Most feet have an arch that helps to spread your body’s weight evenly over the many bones and joints. Feet can change as we get older, especially if arthritis affects the joints. Foot and ankle problems are usually, but not always associated with arthritis.

Understanding Foot and Ankle Pain

Most people who experience foot and ankle pain are able to resolve it without surgery. Common non-surgical treatments for foot and ankle pain include: Shoe wear modification, Medications, Orthosis and physiotherapy.

Our South Coast Orthopaedic doctor can usually diagnose a foot or ankle problem with a simple clinical examination. This involves looking carefully at your feet and ankles, and checking for signs of swelling and inflammation. You may be asked to walk around the room to see what happens to your foot or ankle during weight-bearing activities. In some instances, our doctor may send you for a blood test, X-ray, ultrasound or MRI.

Do you need to see a Foot and Ankle surgeon?

If your foot or ankle pain cannot be sufficiently treated by non-surgical means, your GP might suggest referring you to one of our orthopaedic surgeons. Talk to your doctor about whether a referral is right for you.
