We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies
such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.
We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as
well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and
guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.
Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact WebsiteAccess@tenethealth.com so that we may be of assistance.
Foot and ankle pain can be easy to ignore. They’re far away from vital organs, and for many of us we try to get off our feet as much as possible during the day. We take a seat at our desk, the pain subsides, and we think, “I’ll get that looked at sometime.” But then we never do.
Foot and ankle pain is not only uncomfortable, it can also seriously affect your ability to get around, and therein affect your health. It can prevent you from getting a proper amount of exercise, and could also keep you from the things you do enjoy doing like playing golf or taking a walk on the beach.
You can take back your freedom to move comfortably with treatment from our foot and ankle specialists. Whether you have a broken foot, sprained ankle, or painful bone spurs from osteoarthritis, we can help you get back on your feet.
Are you hurt, or are you injured?
In sports, a coach will often ask if you are hurt or injured. The difference being that if you’re hurt, it might be something you can play through, while if you’re injured, you would want to have a professional take a look at the injury.
Foot and ankle pain is no different. For a sprain or a strain, the treatment might be as easy as staying off it for a few days. Avoid the activities that cause discomfort, ice the injury to ease the swelling, consider a compression bandage to also combat swelling, and keep it elevated to the extent possible. You can be back on course in no time.
But if it’s something more serious, more aggressive treatment might be necessary.
The only way to find out for sure is to talk to a doctor, and that’s where our online Find a Doc physician finder is especially helpful in finding a doctor that’s right for you and your injury.
