Foot & Ankle Injury in Singapore

The foot and ankle together form a complex structure. One foot alone contains 26 bones, 33 joints, and over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments within. As a result, the foot and ankle can bear a large amount of weight, which is crucial to our everyday lives.

Any condition that affects one’s foot and ankle can result in pain and inability to walk or move. If you experience any issue or pain in the foot and ankle, do consult an experienced foot and ankle specialist for personalised and effective care.

What are the Causes of Foot and Ankle Injuries?

A common cause of foot and ankle injuries is accidental trauma. Slips and falls can lead to foot and ankle injuries. While injuries like fractures, sprains, or bruises can happen suddenly, some injuries can be chronic or develop gradually due to overuse or improper sports technique or gait. Some conditions can also be genetic and develop naturally, such as flat feet.

What are the Symptoms of Foot and Ankle Injuries?

Pain is often associated with many foot and ankle injuries, though not always. The pain can be sudden (acute), long-term (chronic), dull, or sharp. Pain may also worsen with particular activities or when wearing uncomfortable shoes. Other common symptoms of foot and ankle conditions include:

  • swelling
  • redness
  • numbness or tingling
  • bruising
  • stiffness
  • deformity

How is a Foot Injury in Singapore Diagnosed?

Diagnosing foot and ankle injuries usually starts with a physical examination. The foot and ankle doctor carefully moves the foot or ankle to check for discomfort, range of motion and any visible deformity. The foot and ankle surgeon may also ask questions regarding health history, activity levels, and symptoms. Imaging scans like x-rays, MRI scans, or ultrasounds may be required to confirm the diagnosis.
