Foot Pain Treatment for Patients from Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, VA & Elsewhere on the Peninsula
Foot pain treatment is available at Tidewater Orthopaedics from Dr. Paul Maloof, a fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)who focuses exclusively on addressing foot and ankle conditions. The feet continually bear the full weight of the body and are subjected to a significant amount of daily wear and tear; as a result, they tend to be especially prone to injury. For instance, an Achilles tendon can rupture, an ankle can sprain, or a joint can deteriorate. As an experienced foot specialist, Dr. Maloof brings the latest foot treatment options – both conservative and surgical – to residents of Hampton, Williamsburg, Newport News, and all surrounding Virginia communities.
Even though mild foot pain that stems from an injury or overuse can be temporarily debilitating, the discomfort often responds well to home remedies. For instance, many people do well with a short period of rest, over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and cold therapy. However, foot pain can sometimes require medical attention. At Tidewater Orthopaedics in Hampton Roads, we recommend seeing a physician for foot pain treatment if the discomfort:
- Is severe
- Doesn’t improve after three to five days of home care
- Is accompanied by extensive swelling, an open wound, or signs of infection, such as a fever or localized redness, tenderness, or warmth
- Impairs mobility or renders the foot unable to sustain the body’s weight
In general, Dr. Maloof recommends conservative foot pain treatment whenever possible, and many of our patients benefit from participating in our comprehensive in-house physical therapy program. For patients who require surgical intervention, Dr. Maloof skillfully performs hammer toe repair, Achilles tendon repair, ankle fusion, bone spur removal, bunionectomy, and other foot and ankle procedures.
