Your foot and ankle are an intricate network of bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. They are one of the most complex parts of the body. Strong enough to bear your body weight, your foot and ankle are susceptible to many stresses and can be prone to pain, inflammation, or injury. These problems can result in limited movement and mobility.
Our doctors and clinical team care for many common foot and ankle problems, along with more complicated diagnoses.
Main Line Spine’s clinical specialty as Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation doctors specifically includes expertise in designing comprehensive, patient-centered treatment plans that, when appropriate, include providers from outside our practice. For some foot and ankle issues, we’ll often collaborate with Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (DPMs) where their specialized expertise in the foot, ankle, and related structures of the leg is critical for treatment.
