From routine checkups to treatments for surgery, Ankle and Foot Institute of Texas is equipped to handle all your podiatric needs. To help you understand your options, we've included descriptions of some of our leading services on this page.
Specialized treatments are used for the following:
Outward bony growths of the heel are also called heel spurs. If they grow under the sole of the foot they are called plantar fasciitis. In addition to pain and tenderness, heel spurs can irritate and inflame the Achilles tendon.
While heel spurs can happen on their own they are often a symptom of an underlying problem such as arthritis or other disorders that cause inflammation of the joints. An X-ray will help your specialist discover heel protrusions. Applying ice to the foot, oral medications, orthotic devices and shoe inserts might help treat heel spurs at home. In less common cases heel spurs might require surgical treatment.
