This depends on the cause of the pain. You would have to be evaluated to determine the best treatment for you
I will scope ankles, tighten ligaments, perform minimally invasive surgery.
This is not a simple question to answer. The reason being that there are many different types of sports related foot pain. Treatment depends on the diagnosis and reason for the foot pain. But, if I were to begin somewhere, I would say that good alignment must be accomplished of not only your feet, but ankles, knees, hips, and spine as well. This is done through a series of X-rays that are evaluated. The use of custom made orthotics from a well reputable laboratory as well as the correct prescription from the specialist, such as myself, is required. Depending on the type of pain, there are specific and targeted types of sports strapping that can be provided, as well as ultrasound techniques, and electrical stimulation to the foot and ankle.
I hope this answers your question.
There are several stem cell type treatments. Stem cells are the precursor of almost all cells in the body. This is usually given by injection. There are several ways this can be done, including taking the patient's own blood (called PRP) plasma rich platelets. I recommend you discuss with your foot and ankle surgeon (podiatrist) or PCP
This question is too broad and vague to give an answer. It really is dependent on what type of injury/pain you are experiencing and in what part of the foot the pain is located. There are 26 (+2) bones, 30 joints, and over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the foot and ankle. There are many nerves and blood vessels in the foot and ankle. So, there are many different things that may go wrong or may cause pain, and there does not necessarily have to be a sports-related injury to have foot and ankle pain.
