Our specialty-trained foot doctors at Cape Fear Orthopedics & Sports Medicine are recognized experts in the diagnosis and treatment of foot injuries and conditions.
As the foundation for your lower body’s movement, the foot and its numerous bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles can be a source of significant joint pain. Often associated with inappropriate footwear or poor alignment, pain in the foot is most commonly associated with trauma, such as a fracture, disease, such as osteoarthritis, deformities, such as a bunion, or stress injuries.
If you are experiencing any of the following foot pain symptoms, it may be time to visit with a foot specialist.
- Numbness in the foot
- Pain in the heel, ball, or arch of the foot
- Inability to perform daily activities without foot pain
- Change in sensation or color of skin or toenail
- Swelling or tenderness
- If the afflicted area looks deformed or if you have lost function
