Oh, My Aching Feet!Tuesday, 23 May 2023 00:00
Working on your feet all day or exercising vigorously are just a couple of things that can cause your feet to feel sore. You might have a problematic foot structure, like flat feet or high arches, that result in aching feet. You could have also sustained an injury that caused damage to your feet, or if you are overweight, the extra pounds you carry could be putting a burden on your feet. There are times when your feet hurt that it is essential to see a podiatrist immediately, such as fracturing a foot or ankle or having a diabetic foot ulcer. Things you can do to soothe your feet when they hurt include soaking them, stretching them, and making sure shoes are comfortable and fit well. To prevent foot pain or treat it when it gets out of control, it is suggested that you see a podiatrist regularly to have your feet examined and make sure you are tending to them the best way you can.
Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with one of our podiatrists from Ankle & Foot Care Center. Our doctors will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.
Foot pain is a very broad condition that could be caused by one or more ailments. The most common include:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Bone Spurs
- Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
- Ingrown Toenails
- Arthritis (such as Gout, Rheumatoid, and Osteoarthritis)
- Flat Feet
- Injury (from stress fractures, broken toe, foot, ankle, Achilles tendon ruptures, and sprains)
- And more
To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.
Treatment depends upon the cause of the foot pain. Whether it is resting, staying off the foot, or having surgery; podiatrists have a number of treatment options available for foot pain.
