http://www.austinfootandankle.com/ In this informative video, Dr. Craig H. Thomajan DPM, FACFAS of Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists explains when to seek medical treatment in the event of a foot injury—and why it’s so important that you do.
If you have discovered that you have hurt your foot or ankle, you should seek medical attention immediately. If you’re concerned that your injury is more than just a common bump and bruise, we can help. We have same-day, emergency appointments available—even for new patients. If, for some reason, you are unable to make it into our office, we urge you to seek medical attention at your nearest emergency room or urgent care center. It is extremely important that your foot or ankle injury is examined by a medical professional in order to make sure it a) isn’t serious, or b) is cared for in order to ensure it heals properly.
After seeking medical attention, you’ll need to be seen for follow-up visits in order to ensure everything is healing properly. Even if you weren’t seen in our office initially, we can still provide your follow-up care.
If you’ve been injured or are having any other foot or ankle problems, our Austin podiatrists can help. Contact Austin Foot and Ankle Specialists at 512.328.8900 today to schedule a complimentary evaluation. http://www.austinfootandankle.com/practice_areas/texas-footankle-injury-athletic-injury-austin-foot-ankle-doctor-sports-medicine.cfm
