We want to inform our patients about what we are doing to help our patients and staff stay safe amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to provide treatment of infections, injuries, ulcerations, and post-operative care in the office by appointment.
The most common cause of chronic ankle pain and instability is a not fully rehabilitated previous sprain.
At Affiliated Foot & Ankle Care, we often see patients who have waited longer than they should to come in to have a foot issue evaluated.
May is Older Americans Month. Every 11 seconds an adult over the age of 65 is treated in the emergency room for a fall.
May is National Osteoporosis Month and at Affiliated Foot & Ankle Care we want our patients to be educated about this disease which causes weakened bones and an increased risk of fractures.
May is National Arthritis Awareness Month, and with 33 joints in each of your feet, we at Affiliated Foot & Ankle Care think this is a good time to learn more about this condition, which can have a devastating effect on your podiatric health.
