Foot & Ankle

Pains in the toes, feet and ankles can arise from a variety of causes, ranging from wearing high-heeled shoes and overuse to sudden injury, or a serious medical condition. Foot, ankle and toe pain often occurs in conjunction with conditions that affect other parts of the body. Pain in these areas can interfere greatly with your daily life, making it difficult to move, walk, climb stairs, sleep, work, or enjoy hobbies and recreation. Shasta Orthopaedics can help with your toe, foot and ankle problems and get you moving around again.
