Tired of Waiting?


Tired of Waiting?

Are you tired of waiting in the emergency room when you get injured?

What about the misdiagnosis that comes from going to an urgent care or walk-in clinic?

Our doctors deal with fractures, sprains, strains and much more on a daily basis, we are able to get our patients in within 24 hours or less from the time they call.

Do you have a foot or ankle injury that you’ve been putting off seeing if it will heal on its own? Make sure you’re taking proper care of yourself and getting every ache and pain checked out by a specialist.

What is a Strain? A Strain occurs when there is tearing or overstretching in the ankle's tendons or muscles. Tendons are the glue that connects muscles to bones. They are composed of strong fibrous cords. When it comes to symptoms, ankle sprains set themselves apart because they often result in muscle spasms.

What is a Sprain? An ankle sprain occurs when the strong ligaments that support the ankle stretch beyond their limits and tear. The severity of a sprain can vary greatly depending on the number of ligaments involved and the extent to which the ligaments are torn. Most sprains heal with conservative treatments like ice, elevation, over-the-counter medications, and simple rehabilitation exercises. However, if your ankle remains swollen or painful for several weeks despite conservative treatments, or if you have difficulty putting weight on your ankle, you may need to be evaluated to ensure that you do not have a severe ankle sprain or fracture.

What is a Fracture? A fracture is a broken bone, the same as a crack or a break. A bone may be completely fractured or partially fractured in any number of ways. The severity of a fracture usually depends on the force that caused the break. If the bone's breaking point has been exceeded only slightly, the bone may crack rather than break all the way through.
