Treatments for Foot and Ankle Stress Fracture

Your Treatment Begins Here

Treating a stress fracture does take time. Typically, your doctor will focus on treating pain and giving six to eight weeks for it to heal. Treatment also depends on age, medical history and severity of the injury.

From medicine to treat pain, to minimally invasive procedures and total reconstructive surgery, we’re prepared to treat you through treatment and recovery. Since there are various types of fractures, your treatment plan is designed specifically to your needs. Read through treatments we offer to be prepared for your potential treatment plan. 

Treatments We Provide

  • Ankle Instability Surgery

    If you've had an unstable ankle that doesn't respond to nonsurgical treatment for six months or more, you may want to consider surgery. Permanently loose ligaments or damaged tendons can be repaired by an orthopedic surgeon to restore strength and control. This may require screws or rods to treat.

  • Fracture Surgery

    When a fracture requires surgical repair, a surgeon who specializes in treating the area of your fracture will help you. He or she will insert pins, rods and/or screws to make sure the bone properly fuses back together. The pins, rods or screws also help preserve range of motion and stability.

  • Joint Replacement Rehabilitation

    Our Joint Success program provides customized care to patients recovering from total knee or hip replacement surgery. Our program is centered on evidence-based techniques to help you achieve the greatest recovery possible at each level of care.

  • Orthopedic Devices 

    Modifying your shoe with an insert or wedge can help elevate your heel to reduce pain and strain.

  • Outpatient Rehabilitation

    Outpatient rehabilitation services are offered in a variety of settings and locations to ensure you receive the best treatment options available. Conditions we treat range from sports-related injuries and post-surgical conditions to general sprains and strains from everyday living.
