About Foot Hand and Ankle Pain
Injury to any of the bones, ligaments, and tendons in the foot, hand, or ankle can cause a significant amount of pain. A simple cause of the pain is a sprain, which occurs when the joint becomes subject to forceful twisting or bending and is typically associated with overstretching and/or tearing of the ligaments. Chronic pain is often associated with inflammation and damage to the surrounding tissue that could develop into conditions, such as bursitis or arthritis. The specialists and physicians at Tricity Pain Associates are focused on helping patients get the best relief for their pain conditions. Let our reliable pain management team help you get the right treatment for your specific concerns.
