Can a podiatrist treat my broken ankle?

When you have a broken ankle, you need good foot care fast—both to relieve the pain and to make sure your body starts healing it correctly. Expert podiatrists like Dr. Cynthia Oberholtzer-Classen and the rest of our team will carefully examine your ankle and use X-rays to identify the fracture. From that our team can determine how serious the problem is and what you will need for treatment. If the bones are not aligned, the X-rays will help us see how to put the fractured ends back in the correct position so they can heal. Then your whole foot and lower leg will need to be immobilized and off-loaded to allow your joint to recover.

Don’t wait to get help for a broken ankle. This injury needs prompt treatment, which is why Podiatry Associates, P.C. now offers evening and Saturday hours for urgent care. If you have an emergency outside of normal office hours that can’t wait for the next day, like a broken bone, contact our Castle Pines or Parker, CO, offices. Just call (303) 805-5156 to reach us.
