What types of foot and ankle conditions do we treat at Third Coast Foot and Ankle?

Well, odds are if you have it, there is a very good chance we can help you do something about it!

We have expertise in treating a wide range of common foot and ankle problems, and some things that are not-so-common, too. We outline a number of our primary areas below, but it is by no means an exhaustive list.

If you do not see any conditions similar to your situation below, please do not hesitate to contact us to explain your situation. We can probably help—and on the off chance that we can’t, we can still usually point you toward a specialist who can.

Heel and Arch Pain

Pain in the heels—either the type that has arisen from an injury or been progressively developing over time—is one of the most common problems we see at our office. There are multiple potential causes of heel pain, from plantar fasciitis to heel spurs, and each condition can arise for multiple different reasons.

If heel or arch pain has been a persistent problem, do not wait any longer to give us a call. The sooner the underlying conditions can be identified and treated, the sooner you can find relief!

Sports Injuries

Our feet and ankles can be put under a lot of stress as we move. They’re built to handle quite a lot, but a sudden strong force or repeated pressures and impacts can sometimes overwhelm them and cause a sports injury.

We provide treatment and care for acute and overuse injuries, including (but not limited to):

Our primary goals for sports injury treatment will always be to help you get back to the activities you love as quickly and as safely as possible, while reducing your risk of further injuries in the future.

Foot Deformities

Imbalances in foot structure can cause problems over time. Sometimes the way weight is distributed across the feet can shift, leading to strain and pain in certain areas. Other times, the shape of the foot itself can shift, most commonly seen in the toes.

We provide treatment and symptom management for foot deformities, including:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Flat Feet
  • High Arches

Often, symptoms of a foot deformity can be successfully managed without the need for surgery. If the need arises, however, we can provide you full support before, during, and after a surgical procedure.

Skin and Nail Conditions

Your skin and toenails shouldn’t just look good – they’re your feet’s first line of defense against exposure and invaders, too! Common skin and nail conditions we treat include:

  • Fungal Toenails
  • Plantar Warts
  • Athlete’s Foot
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Corns and Calluses
  • Dry, Cracking Skin

Children’s Foot and Ankle Conditions

Even young feet need help sometimes, too.

Children can suffer from many of the same conditions that adults can. In fact, ingrown toenails and plantar warts tend to be more common in children, and even foot deformities such as bunions are not entirely out of the question.

Additionally, growing feet and ankles can often benefit from special attention. When we identify conditions such as flexible flatfoot, in-toeing, or out-toeing as early as possible, we can put proactive measures into place to ensure these conditions don’t interfere with your child’s development.
