When it comes to foot swelling, early evaluation and treatment are important to prevent the condition from progressing and causing further complications. At Carrollton Foot Center, we start with a thorough physical examination and x-rays to determine possible causes of the swelling, such as fractures or arthritis.
In addition to x-rays, we may also perform arterial or venous ultrasounds to check for any underlying circulation problems. Once we have identified the cause of the swelling, we can develop a treatment plan to address it.
Conservative treatment options for foot swelling include oral medication and the use of compression stockings to improve circulation and reduce inflammation. These treatments can help alleviate symptoms and prevent further complications.
However, if conservative treatments fail, we may consider more advanced imaging such as MRIs to further evaluate the underlying cause of the swelling. In some cases, surgical intervention may be necessary to address the underlying issue.
If you are experiencing foot swelling, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible to prevent complications. Our experienced podiatrists at Carrollton Foot Center can help diagnose and treat your condition, so you can get back to your daily activities without pain or discomfort.
