How common is foot and ankle pain?

Whether you stand on your feet all day for work, play competitive sports or are simply getting older, you might be experiencing foot and ankle pain. If so, you’re not alone. In fact, plenty of people experience ankle and foot pain at some point in their lives.

Although there are ways in which you can ease the pain yourself, if you’re finding that ankle and foot pain is affecting your daily life, our multidisciplinary team of ankle and foot specialists, pain experts, physiotherapists and nurses in our leading London hospital can help.

How will the specialists determine the cause of ankle and foot pain?

At Schoen Clinic, we understand that everyone is unique. That’s why we’ll never recommend a one-size-fits-all treatment plan. Instead, we pride ourselves on delivering personalised medicine that’s tailored to your unique needs.

As such, the first step in determining the cause of your pain is a thorough examination. When you first come to see us, we will take a detailed history and assess your ankle and/or foot. Checking for swelling, pain and bruising, we’ll be able to explore your condition and let you know our expert opinion.

To ensure you get the best treatment possible, in some cases it may be necessary to delve further into your condition with an X-ray, CT or MRI scan at our state-of-the-art ankle and foot specialist hospital in London.

Once we’ve done this, we’ll be able to provide an accurate diagnosis and bespoke treatment plan that’s tailored to you.

What foot and ankle conditions do you treat at your specialised hospital in London?

We understand that foot and ankle pain can have a devastating impact on your quality of life. That’s why we have a team of experts on hand to help put things right. Our team of qualified and experienced specialists include some of the best foot and ankle orthopaedic surgeons in the country, so we have the means to expertly treat a wide variety of foot and ankle problems.

Just some of the conditions that you can have treated at our state-of-the-art foot and ankle clinic include:

  • Achilles tendon injuries – Overstretching or tearing the tendon that connects the heel bone and calf muscle can cause bruising, swelling, stiffness and tenderness. An Achilles tendon rupture is commonplace and can occur while playing a sport or exercising. If you have ruptured the Achilles tendon, you’ll likely find it difficult to walk, run or climb stairs.
  • Arthrosis - Arthrosis is a degenerative condition that affects mostly cartilage. Linked with ageing, this condition causes the cartilage to become irregular and wear out. Although arthrosis is non-inflammatory, it can cause pain and loss of joint mobility.
  • Flat feet – Also known as fallen arches, having flat feet is a condition in which the arches of the feet collapse. Common in all ages of patients, flat feet or fallen arches normally aren't anything to worry about. However, if this happens suddenly or you start having pain around your ankle or foot, an examination is recommended.
  • Bunion surgery – The tell-tale sign of a bunion is a bony, often painful, bump at the base of the big toe. The bump is caused by an unusual enlargement of the joint. Bunions can be painful and can have a substantial impact on your daily life. Our foot specialists in London can help relieve the pain associated with bunions – all without lengthy waiting times so that you can get your life back on track.
  • Minimally invasive bunion surgery – As our specialists are industry-leading foot surgeons in London, we’re able to offer minimally invasive bunion surgery. If you’re a good candidate, this option comes with cosmetic benefits and a lower risk of infection. What’s more, if you choose to go down this route with us, most of our patients can walk immediately after their procedure, so you can expect minimal disruption to your life.
  • Plantar fasciitis – The painful inflammation of the plantar fascia is known as plantar fasciitis and is characterised by a sharp pain in the heel area. Causing discomfort when you walk or after periods of sleep and rest, plantar fasciitis can be debilitating. That’s why our team of experienced physiotherapists and podiatrists are on hand to help.
  • Toe arthritis (Hallux rigidus) – Toe arthritis is caused by inflammation of the toe joint. Normally affecting the big toe, hallux rigidus can be caused by old sports injuries or traumas. Left too long without treatment, arthritis in the toes can cause tenderness, achiness and pain, making each step agonising. As time is of the essence, our team of foot and ankle surgeons in London can normally see you in less than 24 hours.
  • Ankle cartilage injuries – Cartilage damage may not cause immediate pain but, if allowed to degenerate, the problems can be debilitating. If you have an ankle cartilage injury, it’s best to seek specialist treatment to mitigate your risk of arthritis. If you’re in significant pain, our team of ankle surgeons in our London clinic can step in to improve your quality of life.
  • Ankle ligament injuries – Among the most common sporting injuries, rolling your ankle can strain, tear or even rupture ankle ligaments. Depending on the severity of your injury, our team of experienced specialists can either carry out surgery or our team of ankle strain and sprain physiotherapists in our London clinic can devise a physiotherapy rehabilitation plan according to your needs.

Frequently asked questions

Regardless of your condition or injury, if you’re still experiencing pain and discomfort after exploring different pain relief methods, you should think about having surgery. Although deciding whether to go down the surgery route is a difficult decision, some injuries are too serious to treat with non-surgical methods.

In some cases, delaying surgery can worsen your condition.

The highly skilled foot and ankle experts at our leading London hospital routinely treat a variety of foot and ankle conditions, meaning that our experts have years of experience carrying out complex surgeries. If you think that you may need surgery, you’re in good hands when you choose us as your ankle and foot clinic in London.

After you’ve had successful foot or ankle surgery, you’ll probably be raring to get back on your feet again. However, it all depends on the severity of your specific condition and the complexity of treatment. In some cases it's only a matter of weeks to recover, in others, it can take up to six months for your foot and ankle to feel normal and up to a year for a full recovery.

When you choose to have surgery with us, you can rest assured that everything is taken care of. We’ll continue to help your recovery long after you’ve left the operating theatre and will support you with world-leading aftercare. Although foot and ankle surgery can take a while to fully heal, we’ll be with you every step of the way.

We offer fixed-price surgery packages so that you know exactly what you’ll be paying from the start, with no nasty surprises.

  • Treatment begins If further treatment is recommended in our foot and ankle clinic, this will be arranged as soon as possible after your consultation at a time to suit you. We don’t like to keep you waiting around.
