Foot Pain

Our fellowship-trained foot doctors at Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists are recognized leaders in the diagnosis and treatment of foot injuries and conditions.

As the foundation for your lower body’s movement, the foot and its numerous bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles can be a source of significant joint pain. Often associated with inappropriate footwear or poor alignment, pain in the foot is most commonly associated with trauma (such as a fracture), disease (such as osteoarthritis), deformities (such as a bunion), or stress injuries. If you are experiencing any of the following foot pain symptoms, it may be time to visit with a foot specialist.

  • Numbness in the foot
  • Pain in the heel, ball, or arch of the foot
  • Inability to perform daily activities without foot pain
  • Change in sensation or color of skin or toenail
  • Swelling or tenderness
  • If the afflicted area looks deformed or if you have lost function

A consultation with a foot doctor is the best way to differentiate between a severe foot condition and minor foot injury. At Northwest Orthopaedic Specialists, we understand that foot pain can have a significant impact on your daily life, and we will work with you to develop a treatment plan specific to your needs. Our foot experts understand that proper diagnosis is paramount in determining the most effective treatment plan for your individual condition.

Preparing for My Appointment & New Patient Forms

“I am the sister of Julie G. I personally want to thank you for the amazing job you did on her foot. There were so many possible complications that could have ensued. Thank you for your complete honesty regarding her recovery. It was important we all heard possible outcomes whether they may be ranging from grim to complete recovery. Julie was diverted from both Sacred Heart and Deaconess due to no room. She was taken to Valley Hospital where thank God, there you were. You and your staff have made a substantial difference in her life. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Today she is actually able to walk. Yes, she is in pain, but she is walking. You were put in her path for a reason. I have heard what a wonderful surgeon you are. I didn’t really need proof, but I’m glad I got it. It takes an effort on all sides. You’re a top surgeon, coupled with my sister’s outstanding, positive attitude with an ongoing willingness to never give up. I am extremely grateful, Dr. Anderson and staff. It was very much appreciated. Thank you again!” — Debbie S.
