Most cases of foot pain and ankle injury are triggered by a combination of overuse, repetitive strain, injury (or trauma), and inflammation to the structures of the foot or ankle. Below are some examples of common causes of foot and ankle pain and injury.

Fortunately, many cases of ankle, foot and heel pain or injuries heel naturally with the correct care and advice. Cases that we see here at the Dynamic Clinic are often dealt with and treated successfully with conservative treatment modalities. This being said, we have built ourselves a very good reputation of providing high quality regenerative treatments for foot and heel pain. The most popular being P-PRP injection therapy, in which patients travel from all over the UK to see us for treatment. Click for more information on ORTHOBIOLOGICS. If patients do not respond adequately to conservative treatment or the problem is getting worse, then consideration for injection therapy may be discussed. If patients are showing signs of advanced injury or disease progression, then we may discuss the option for an MRI scanning, to get diagnostic clarity.

If a cause of your foot pain is suspected to be of an inflammatory or rheumatological origin, then you will be asked to provide a blood test and lab panel to check for raised inflammatory markers and or uric acid levels.

Specialist Imaging or Private MRI Scan Referral

At the Dynamic Clinic we occasionally provide ultrasound imaging to look for signs of tissue damage and inflammation. However, sometimes we may require a more in-depth analysis. If a private scan is considered, we will put in a referral to our local Imaging Centre in Solihull. You will then be contacted and booked in within 5-10 days. When your clan has been completed, the report will be completed by our colleague Dr David Beale (Consultant Musculoskeletal Radiologist). This report will then come back to the Dynamic Clinic and will we then discuss with you then best course of treatment for your pain or injury. 

In some cases we may refer to our trusted colleagues Mr Mark Herron (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon) or Mr James Ramos (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon) for surgical opinion. 

Foot Pain Assessment

To help your ankle, heel or foot pain, we firstly need to know what may be causing the issue. To do this we have to provide a thorough foot and ankle pain assessment.​​ If you have been suffering with foot and ankle pain for some time which does not appear to be improving or is impacting on your function, it is recommended to see a musculoskeletal professional. This experienced clinician will be able to provide a full assessment, gain information to make a diagnosis and provide the best treatment and management to resolve your foot pain or injury and get you back to full function again. At the Dynamic Clinic, heel pain associated with plantar fasciitis is extremely common and something see every day.
