Foot and Ankle Care

Your feet are a sophisticated engineering marvel

that bear all of your weight and carry you through life, often taking quite a pounding without you having to give them much thought.

 

If you are experiencing foot pain, it may be time to give your feet and ankles some TLC. 


Here at The Foot and Ankle Treatment Center we have amazing advanced medical technology in foot and ankle care at our disposal to get you through many of the issues that in earlier days would have been life changing setbacks.

Below are a list of common ailments and injuries of the foot that we treat and a very brief description of possible symptoms. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we recommend you contact us at 706-310-4288. It is always best to consult a podiatrist rather than to self diagnosis as many injuries of the foot and ankle may have similar symptoms.
