A foot sprain involves a tear of the ligament in your foot. This can happen due to sports injuries or physical activities in which you are twisting your ankle or foot to perform a movement. If you have a foot sprain, there are three levels of this injury. The first is a grade I sprain, which is minor and includes small ligament tears. A grade II sprain is moderate and involves large tears. If the ligament is completely torn away from your bones in your foot this is a severe sprain called a grade III. While you cannot detect the grade of your sprain on your own, you can note symptoms of a foot sprain. These include pain, bruising, swelling, and being unable to put pressure on your foot.
If you have a grade III foot sprain see Dr. Joshi or Dr. Kitrosser immediately for treatment as this requires medical attention and possible foot surgery. Otherwise, you want to visit your podiatrist for x-rays to view the ligament tears. This allows the podiatrist to determine the grade of your sprain so he can prescribe you with the proper treatment. Dr. Joshi and Dr. Kitrosser are expert sports injury podiatrists who have training in identifying and treating foot injuries due to physical activity. They can best determine a level of care for your particular injury.
Treating bone fractures at Advanced Foot Care of New Jersey begins with diagnostic imaging. This gives Dr. Joshi and Dr. Kitrosser the information they need to best mend your broken foot. If your injury involves a displaced fracture, the treatment may involve a reduction to manipulate the bones back into the right place. Most bone fractures need some sort of immobilization to allow the bones to knit themselves back together. In cases of a compound fracture, you may require foot surgery to repair the break.
