If you are injured in a car accident, sports injury, or worker’s comp, you will require immediate treatment. Our board-certified providers at UrgentWay are experienced in treating injuries.
Failure to obtain proper care can make your pain and injury worse. Some slip and fall injuries can result in different conditions, such as a pinched nerve or muscle weakness.
What type of trauma can affect my feet?
Several types of trauma can affect your feet and ankles: simple fractures can be clean breaks in the bones. Others involve multiple breaks (comminuted fractures). The feet are also likely to sustain crush injuries where the bones and soft tissues sustain widespread damage.
Our experienced health care professionals will discuss your health and counsel you on preventative care and healthy choices.

Dislocations are a common ankle problem. They occur when the bones that make up the joint separate under stress, causing a painful misalignment.
Ligament and tendon injuries are also common ankle problems. While some sprains and strains involve only mild stretching of tissues, others cause severe tears or complete rupture of muscles and tendons. You could also experience trauma such as partial amputation, deep cuts, puncture wounds, burns, and scalds.
What should I do if I have a foot or ankle injury?
In the case of foot and ankle injuries, follow basic first aid steps. For example, a sprain or strain needs rest, ice packs, and a supportive bandage. You should also lie down and raise your legs above your head whenever possible. Burns and scalds should be kept moist, and if you are bleeding, try to stop the flow of blood. Depending on the severity of your trauma, you may need to go to a hospital emergency room or get an urgent appointment at UrgentWay. The treatment you need for your foot or ankle injury depends on the nature of your injury and its severity.
What treatment is needed for a foot or ankle injury?
Wounds need attention. This is especially true for puncture wounds to the foot, which are common from stepping on nails and other sharp objects. Bacteria trapped in a puncture wound can lead to tetanus, so you should get a booster shot to protect yourself. Wounds often need stitches as well. Our provider at UrgentWay can set a simple fracture or manually manipulate any slightly misaligned bone.
They use diagnostic imaging to make sure the bones are perfectly positioned before applying a cast. A sprain or strain may need to be immobilized with a brace or splint, and you should follow your provider’s advice about limiting your activities while the injury heals. Physiotherapy can also be invaluable in recovering from foot and ankle trauma.
