Foot & Ankle
Our feet and ankles are the foundation for our entire body. Out of the 206 bones in our bodies, almost one-fourth are located in our feet. Keeping our feet and ankles free of pain while maintaining optimal mobility and flexibility, help us pursue the activities we love.

All of these problems can result in severe pain. Foot and ankle pain can increase irritability and cause patients to feel overly tired. Overall, these problems interfere with the ability to perform daily tasks.
One of the main causes of sprained or broken ankles are tripping and falling. These causes twist or rotate the ankle, bending it past its range of motion, as well as high-impact injuries, such as vehicle accidents.
Athletes, including dancers, sometimes experience unique foot and ankle problems related to repeated stress and impact on these joints. DFP’s team of expert physicians are skilled at correcting and preventing foot and ankle problems for athletes.
If you have any of the symptoms mentioned above, please contact DFP and make an appointment with one of our Kansas City ankle and foot specialists. They will perform a complete examination, diagnosing and ultimately treating any problem.
