Offering Precise Treatment for Problems of the Foot

Is your foot painful and swollen? Do you have discoloration and/or bruising at the bottom and top of your foot? Lisfranc or Midfoot Injury damages the cartilage of the midfoot joints with some cases due to low-energy injury with the more severe cases being high-energy injury. With pain that gets worse while walking or standing, Lisfranc or Midfoot injury may need crutches for the patient as the condition is very painful and uncomfortable. The Lisfranc or Midfoot injury is called after the French surgeon, Jacques Lisfranc de St. Martin who reported on midfoot injuries when he served in Napoleon's army in the 1800s and he was also known to have pioneered the midfoot amputation. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry near San Jose, California are expert podiatrists with knowledge and know how with years of experience in the field of foot problems. The podiatrists at the Cupertino clinic offer sound advice, professional advice and detailed care. With in-depth examination and careful treatment, the podiatrists at the clinic in Cupertino recommend precise rehabilitation methods that would give their patients a chance to recover and get back to their normal lifestyles.

As a condition that can range from simple to complex severity, Lisfranc or Midfoot injury should be taken seriously by the injured person as the injury may take a long period of time to heal. The midfoot being the middle region of the foot has a cluster of small bones that forms an arch at the top of the foot. Five long bones or the metatarsals stretch to the toes from this cluster. The bones are held by ligaments or connective tissues that stretch down and across the foot, but there are no connective tissues that connect or hold the first metatarsal to the second metatarsal. If a person twists his/her foot, the bones can dislocate or break due to a fall. The midfoot is an important structure that stabilizes the arch and regulates the gait as in walking. The midfoot conveys the forces created by the calf muscles to the front of the foot. With the Lisfranc or Midfoot injury occurring due to just a fall or simple twist, the impact is known as low-energy injury that can be seen often in soccer or football players and the high-energy injury occurs due to a fall from a height that can result in dislocation of the joints and multiple fractures. The podiatrists at Cupertino Podiatry near San Jose, California prescribe the right treatment at the right time to prevent further complications.

The Right Diagnosis at the Right Time

Some of the symptoms of Lisfranc injury are pain that becomes worse while walking or standing, bruising or discoloration of the bottom and top of the foot with swelling and pain at the top of the foot. If the patient has already tried rest, elevation and application of ice packs to the injured area and if the condition does not subside, then it is imperative that he/she must see a podiatrist. The podiatrists at the Cupertino clinic will examine the affected area by palpating the midfoot region, check for bruising besides rendering ‘piano key' and single limb heel rise tests. The podiatrists at the clinic in Cupertino would also prescribe imaging tests with a computerized tomography scan (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan and X-rays.

Depending on the severity of the injury, the podiatrists at the clinic in Cupertino, San Jose would recommend non-surgical and surgical treatment. With the non-surgical treatment involving a non-weight bearing cast for 6 weeks with rest and follow up X-rays, the surgical treatment would evolve over surgery with Internal fixation and Fusion methods followed by rehabilitation for 6 to 8 weeks besides avoiding impact activities. Adding cure with convenience for their patients, the podiatrists at the clinic in Cupertino offer sound advice with detailed treatment.
