Foot & Ankle Trauma Q & A

What is foot and ankle trauma?

Foot and ankle trauma refers to any injury involving your feet or ankles from an accident or physical activity.

 

Your feet and ankles are complex body parts made up of bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. The structure of your feet and ankles allows these parts to all work together, helping you stand, walk, run, and jump. 

 

One misstep or high-impact landing may stress the structures in the feet or ankles, causing an injury.

What are examples of foot and ankle trauma?

The Trinity Foot & Ankle Specialists team includes physicians with fellowship training in foot and ankle trauma. They specialize in diagnosing and treating these injuries, including: 

 
  • Sprains and strains
  • Pilon fractures
  • Fibular fractures
  • Ankle fractures
  • Calcaneal fractures
  • Talus fractures
  • Navicular fractures
  • Lisfranc fractures and dislocations
  • Metatarsal fractures
  • Tendonitis
  • Dislocation
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Contusions
  • Wounds
 

The team also has physicians that specialize in sports medicine. Though foot and ankle trauma may affect anyone, athletes who play high-impact sports are prone to these types of injuries.

What happens during a foot and ankle trauma evaluation?

The specifics of your foot or ankle trauma evaluation at Trinity Foot & Ankle Specialists may depend on your injury. The team asks detailed questions about the trauma, including how it happened and your symptoms. They also review your medical history and usual activities.

 

Your provider examines your injured foot or ankle to look for signs of trauma. They may also run imaging tests to check for internal damage. Testing may include X-rays, CT scans, MRIs, or ultrasounds. 

How is foot and ankle trauma treated?

The team at Trinity Foot & Ankle Specialists customizes treatment for foot and ankle trauma injuries based on the location and severity of the injury. 

 

Treatment for foot and ankle trauma may include:

 
  • Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE)
  • Activity modification
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Change in shoewear
  • Splinting, bracing, or casting
  • Physical therapy
  • Custom orthotics
  • Wound care
  • Injection therapy
 

When necessary, the team may recommend surgical interventions to treat your foot or ankle trauma. 

 

The fellowship-trained foot and ankle surgeons treat closed and open fractures using open reduction internal fixation (ORIF) or external fixation as needed.
