Foot Fracture Diagnosis
If you do notice any deformity, or have pain, swelling, or tenderness that lingers for more than a day or two, it is important to contact a podiatrist. To diagnose a foot fracture, Dr. Sana takes your medical history, asking specifically about the above symptoms. He also asks about your activity level, when any existing symptoms began, and if you have sustained any recent foot injuries.
Dr. Sana typically orders diagnostic imaging if he suspects you have a fracture. This may include x-rays or ultrasound. Images are used to both diagnose the issue and determine treatment options. These tests are performed in-house, using Phoenician Foot & Ankle’s state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment.
