Have you experienced an ankle of foot fracture or sprain? This often occurs during sports activities. However, this type of injury can also occur while you are walking around your house or while walking the dog. If you experience an ankle or foot fracture, or sprain, it is very important that you come in to see our foot doctor immediately to make sure that your condition is properly diagnosed and treated. Ankle and foot problems that are not treated for a long amount of time can sometimes go on to cause long-lasting foot problems. For this reason you will always want to make sure that you see our foot doctor if you experience an ankle or foot injury. At our foot care practice, New York Podiatry Care, our Lido Beach foot doctor are Dr. Sarah Kim and Dr. Bob Biller.
Dr. Kim specializes in all aspects of podiatry medicine and surgical techniques. Dr. Kim has completed an extensive three year surgical residency, as the Chief Podiatric Resident at South Nassau Communities Hospital. Should your ankle or foot need podiatric surgery she will be able to provide you with the highest level of care. Many times an ankle or foot sprain does not need this type of surgical care, but it is always important that the injury is examined and assessed thoroughly. If it ends up that a foot or ankle does need some type of surgical care, and it is not addressed in a timely fashion, the patient always runs the risk of leaving the door open for developing a long-lasting injury. Our Lido Beach foot doctor will be able to fully assess your injury and determine exactly what type of treatment is needed.
Should you experience an ankle or foot fracture, or sprain, you will want to contact our office as soon as possible. All you need to do is inform our staff about the nature of your problem, and they will do their very best to make sure that you can come in for emergency care as soon as possible. While many foot and ankle sprains and fractures are related to problems that occurred during sports play, gymnasts and dances are also very prone to developing stress fractures of their feet. However, a foot or ankles sprain or fracture can easily occur by accident. Sometimes our patient is just walking in their house and trips over something that was inadvertently left in their path. Or, perhaps, a patient may stumble while going up or down the stairs. For an appointment to see our Lido Beach foot doctor, contact us today.
