Washington Township Medical Foundation Orthopaedics

Causes of ankle pain and instability may include damage to the ankle joint. Conditions that affect the ankle include tissue bands, bone spurs, ligament tears, arthritis, articular cartilage damage, and tendonitis. Our Fremont orthopaedic surgeons at Washington Township Medical Foundation Orthopaedics can use minimally invasive, arthroscopic procedures to treat ankle conditions.

Contact our team to learn more about the following:

  • Ankle Arthroscopy – Minimally invasive procedures used in treating ankle injuries / conditions include shorter recovery times, less bleeding, minimized scarring, reduced pain, smaller incisions, and no cutting of tendons or muscles. Arthroscopy can be used both to diagnose and to treat a variety of ankle disorders. Speak with our sports medicine specialists and orthopaedic surgeons at WTMF in Fremont about your options and the benefits of arthroscopic techniques.
  • Shin Splints Treatment – One of the most common causes of leg pain in athletes and other physically active individuals is shin splints, also known as medial tibial stress syndrome. Unless you properly handle this overuse injury, it can get worse. Causes include overuse of tibialis muscles, flat fleet or “Pes Planus,” and lack of calve flexibility. It is best to begin new exercise regimes carefully and methodically in order to avoid strain and injury. If you have begun to experience symptoms, speak with our sports medicine specialists.
