RECOVERY STARTS WITH THE RIGHT DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
Sports, fitness, and active hobbies are in an important part of maintaining your wellbeing, and they may even be part of your profession. Sports-related injuries of the foot and ankle are common, but that doesn’t mean they should go without professional attention. If you’re experiencing abnormal sensations or pain that isn’t going away on its own within a few days, it’s time to make an appointment with a podiatrist. At Highland Foot And Ankle Clinic in St. Paul, we specialize in sports medicine as it relates to podiatric care. Our expertise in sports injuries of the foot and ankle enable us to provide accurate diagnoses and treatments to help ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

Frequently Asked Questions
With any injury involving the foot or ankle, it is important that you see a doctor as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more severe your injury could become. At Highland Foot and Ankle we can quickly diagnose your injury and we will go over a detailed treatment and recovery plan with you to make sure your injury heals quickly and correctly.
The best answer we have for this question is to trust your instincts. You know your body best and if you feel like there’s a chance your injury could be more than a minor incident, then it’s always best to make an appointment. Once you come in, we can make the proper observations and assessments using x-ray, MRI, or other advanced imaging and diagnostic equipment. From there, we can tell you exactly what you need to make a proper recovery from your injury.
Unfortunately, there’s no specific time limit when dealing with foot and ankle injuries. Partly, it depends on the severity and nature of the injury, and it also depends on the condition of your body. If you have other conditions that could inhibit your ability to recover, that could play a major factor in the time it takes to recover. However, the single greatest factor is your willingness to follow a recovery regimen. Contact Highland Foot and Ankle Clinic, and we can help guide you down the quickest path to recovery.
At Highland Foot and Ankle Clinic, it is our practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering surgery. If the injury does require surgery, our surgeons are expertly trained to effectively correct the problem.
If you have suffered an injury that has at any point hindered your ability to walk, we highly suggest meeting with a doctor before you begin walking on your injured foot/ankle. Walking and running on an injured foot or ankle before it has properly healed can lead to further damage that can be more difficult to treat.
