Foot and Ankle Pain

Ankle sprains and fractures frequently result in chronic pain. Treatment for these injuries will be determined by the location of the fracture, the extent of healing, and previous treatment of the injury (i.e. – was surgery performed and if so did the surgery heal as expected). Other types of injuries to this area include ligament tears, Achilles tendonitis and partial Achilles tendon tears; these conditions are often responsive to PRP therapy. Nerve injuries in the foot can result in severe pain and in the some cases can cause the patient to develop a complex regional pain syndrome (see sympathetic pain syndromes)
