Years of standing or being on your feet for long periods of time, aging, being overweight, engaging in sports, enduring foot injuries, or wearing improper or ill-fitting shoes are some of the potential culprits for foot pain. Foot pain is described as any ache or discomfort in the heel, soles, toes, in-step, or arch of the foot. Foot pain can be caused by medical conditions or complications such as plantar fasciitis, gout, broken bones, sprains, arthritis, calluses and corns, hammer toes, and many other foot injuries or abnormalities. If you or someone you love is suffering from foot pain, contact our knowledgeable staff at Pain Care for an appointment today.
Among reasons for pain felt in the foot, plantar fasciitis is one of the most common conditions resulting in heel pain and discomfort. The plantar fascia is a thick strip of tissues running along the heel and connecting the bottom of the foot to the toes. The condition occurs as a result of inflammation which may arise from people who run, are obese, or who wear shoes that do not offer the appropriate heel and foot support.
The experience of plantar fasciitis is most notable in the morning after rising. Sufferers may feel a stabbing pain in the heel that decreases after moving around. Other times when this discomfort may appear include after long periods of standing or after sitting then rising again.
Treatment for Foot Pain and Plantar Fasciitis
In some instances, minor cases of foot pain can be relieved with at-home treatments, such as reducing physical activity, elevating the achy foot, applying ice, taking over-the-counter medication, and wearing appropriate shoes. However, if foot pain is not remedied through these actions it is important to reach out to pain management specialists like our doctors and physical therapist in Little Rock or Benton.
When you arrive at our clinic, we will complete a thorough medical and personal history interview to better understand your circumstances. Our doctors will perform a comprehensive examination to determine possible causes of your foot pain. Then, our professional team of pain management providers will work with you to determine the best course of action for reducing your foot pain and improving your quality of life. Some of the treatments available at Pain Care include chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, ultrasound therapy, and physical therapy.
