Ankle Treatments & Surgery
Get Back in the Game With Our Ankle Treatments & Surgery
The ankle is composed of the tibia and fibula of your lower leg, plus their interactions with the talus, or heel bone. This hinge joint gives your foot the ability to move up and down, called plantar flexion and dorsiflexion, respectively. Despite the simplicity of this joint, impairment of it may affect pressure distribution, musculature stress, gait function, and foot comfort.BookAn Appointment
Ankle Conditions We Treat
The most common cause of ankle fractures is over-use, resulting in stress fractures. While many fractures heal on their own, proper evaluation is necessary to pick the optimal immobilizer, stabilizer, and recovery plan. Did a hard impact cause your broken ankle? We know how to treat that, too.
You’ve rolled your ankle. Ouch; now what? Sprains are the result of over-stretched ligaments. They can cause tears, ruptures, and, most noticeably, pain. Serious sprains may require crutches, physical therapy, or even surgery. Our team can evaluate your sprain, and deliver the exact care you need to heal.
Achilles tendonitis describes the common inflammation of the large tendon that runs down the back of your lower leg. It becomes irritated and swollen, causing pain. Because the potential triggers for Achilles tendonitis are numerous, it can be difficult to determine the source of your condition. You might not know how to prevent future flare-ups; that’s where we come in.
Arthritis is the inflammation of a joint. Symptoms include joint pain and stiffness, and it’s most common in older patients, athletes, and those genetically predisposed to it. Arthritic damage that is already done cannot be reversed, but our treatments will prevent progression and remedy your pain.

We’re here to help your body heal. After fractures and sprains, your stability and mobility may be affected. Sometimes this just requires a brace, and other times, you may find yourself on crutches. An evaluation at our clinic allows for proper immobilizer and stabilizer selection, to keep you on your feet.
Dr. Nik’s Foot & Ankle Clinic proudly administers innovative healing methods, including the regenerative medicine techniques of stem cell treatment and platelet-rich plasma therapy. Both procedures involve concentrating the best healing molecules in your body and transferring them to where you need remediation.
There’s a lot of over-the-counter pain medicines. Despite the overwhelming amount of options, your aching may not be alleviated by any of them. Our team can prescribe pain medications and pharmaceutical strategies that work to effectively relieve your chronic discomfort.
