When you are suffering from pain or discomfort in your feet, ankles, or lower legs, you need to visit your doctor to determine the source of the pain. With a series of tests and examinations available, your doctor can better diagnose your condition and prescribe the best method of treatment.
Depending on your specific symptoms, your doctor may use one or more of the following diagnostic tools to identify your condition:
- CAT (or CT) Scan.
- Disease Screenings.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).
- Physical Examination.
Your podiatrist will perform a thorough examination to discover and address underlying reasons. He may suggest effective options to get a clear picture of the function and movement of soft tissue structures as well as note any injury to muscles, ligaments, and more.
