Foot Pain Q&A

What is foot pain?

Foot pain is discomfort, aching, or stiffness that affects your ankles, heels, or toes.

Your feet and ankles have dozens of bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These hard and soft tissues support the weight of your upper body and play a vital role in movements like walking and running, but they’re vulnerable to injury.

If continuous foot or ankle pain keeps you from work or the activities you love, contact Regenexx Las Vegas today.

When should I see an orthopedic specialist about foot pain?

Make an appointment with Dr. Goodwin at Regenexx Las Vegas if you experience foot or ankle pain lasting more than a day or two. That’s especially true if you have a medical condition like diabetes that interferes with blood flow, or the pain prevents you from standing or putting weight on your foot or ankle.

How are foot pain and ankle pain diagnosed?

To diagnose foot and ankle pain, Dr. Goodwin reviews your medical records and asks about your symptoms, including when the pain started, which part of your foot is affected, and how severe it is.

Next, Dr. Goodwin asks you to walk back and forth, observing your gait and posture and checking the alignment of your hips, knees, and back. Dr. Goodwin also orders diagnostic imaging, like X-rays, a CT scan, or an MRI, to get a closer look at your bones, joints, and soft tissues.
