Foot Pain May Need Treatment

Tuesday, 14 February 2023 00:00

The causes of foot pain are many and varied. Oftentimes, foot pain comes and goes and with rest and temporary termination of the activity that caused it, the pain will desist. Simple cases of foot pain can be attributed to poorly fitting shoes or standing on your feet all day. Wearing shoes that fit properly and are comfortable and taking frequent breaks if your feet are tired should help. Foot pain can also be caused by overuse injuries, such as Achilles tendinitis or an avulsion fracture. Achilles tendinitis is brought on by overuse of the tendons in the Achilles. An avulsion fracture is another such overuse injury and is a breaking of a bone in the foot. When you do not have a clear idea of what caused the pain in the first place, and if it persists for more than two weeks, it is time to see a podiatrist to check and see if there is something more serious going on and whether you need advanced treatment.

Foot Pain

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with the podiatrists  from Dr. Siegerman & Associates. Our doctors will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.

Causes

Foot pain is a very broad condition that could be caused by one or more ailments. The most common include:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Bone Spurs
  • Corns
  • 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

Diagnosis

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

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.
