Heel pain can be caused by many things. Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain and typically causes pain when you first get out of bed or when you stand up after sitting for a period of time. Conservative treatments such as icing, stretching and supportive shoes can be helpful. If this doesn't help, there are many other treatments we have to help you.

Pain in your ankle with range of motion and activity is often a sign of arthritis that may be developing. Typical findings of arthritis include loss of cartilage and bone spurs. Your pain can be decreased by different treatments such as cortisone shots, bracing, and physical therapy. When these treatments don't provide adequate relief, surgical options including ankle arthroscopy, ankle replacement, and ankle fusion can help patients return to a more active lifestyle with less pain. If you are experience pain, please call our Colorado Springs office today at 719-488-4664 so we can help you!
With the colder weather arriving, many of us start wearing closed-toed shoes start activites such as skiing and snowboarding. This change in shoe gear can irritate many underlying problems with our feet and ankles such as bumps of bone (like bunions or bone spurs) that prevent us from being comfortable while enjoying activities.
