Foot Pain & Problems

 
   

     The feet are the foundation of the body.  It is often said that when your feet hurt, you hurt all over.  Many things can cause the feet to hurt.  For some it may be a heel spur, for others possibly fallen arches, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, nerve irritation or compression, corns, calluses, bunions, and many more.  Problems of the feet often cause us to walk in a way that is unnatural or that tries to prevent our feet from hurting.  These changes to our posture and walking patterns will soon show up in other parts of the body.  For example, a person experiencing foot pain for a couple of weeks may find that other joints in the body begin to hurt.  Maybe its the knees, hips, back, even the neck can be affected by problems that originate in your feet.  Who knew so much could be the result of a simple problem in your feet!

     Your Doctor of Chiropractic is trained to recognize and provide treatment for conditions of the feet.  Chiropractors specialize in detecting problems that affect your entire body, and can look after your feet as the source of the problem, and any secondary areas of the body that now might be troubling you due to that problem.  There is a wide range of treatment options available for your Chiropractor to use in correcting your particular foot problem.  These might include adjusting and manipulating the bones of the feet and lower leg, ultrasound and laser to aid in the reduction of pain, inflammation, and swelling, stretches and exercises designed specifically for your condition, and custom-made prescription foot orthotics to correct any structural problems of the feet.

     So what are foot orthotics?  What braces are for the teeth, a custom-made pair of foot orthotics is for your feet.  They resemble an insole that slides inside your shoe, and they have been made by taking precise measurements of your feet, the way you walk, and any pre-existing problems you have in your feet.  Casts are taken of your feet to get an exact 3D impression of the shape and contours of each foot.  This way, you can be sure that your orthotics will provide you with the best and most comfortable fit possible.  Your casts are laser-scanned and combined with the results of your comprehensive clinical examination, and your very own custom-made orthotics are the result.  Precisely designed and crafted to suit your feet.  They provide correction for many biomechanical problems of the feet, and are so comfortable to wear that many people find it hard to go without theirs.  They can be made for almost anyone and to fit in nearly any type of shoe.  And they can be moved between various types of shoes.  There are even custom-made shoes available with your orthotics already built into them, in a wide variety of styles.  For more information click HERE or contact our office regarding treatment of foot problems and custom orthotics.
