Diagnostics

When you are suffering from pain or discomfort in your feet, ankles, or lower legs, you need to visit your doctor to determine the source of the pain. With a series of tests and examinations available, your doctor can better diagnose your condition and prescribe the best method of treatment. Depending on your specific symptoms, your doctor may request additional diagnostic tests to make a more precise diagnosis.

A major foot or ankle injury can have a very significant impact on your daily life and problems can arise from a variety of situations, including injuries, aging, being overweight, and ill-fitting footwear.
