Foot Pain Q & A

What causes foot pain?

Each of your feet has 26 bones, 30 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This complex musculoskeletal network allows you to stand, balance, and move. It shouldn’t be a surprise that your feet are vulnerable to a wide range of repetitive use and acute injuries. 

Some of the most common causes of foot pain include:

Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis develops when the fascia that stretches from the heel to the ball of your foot becomes inflamed. It causes sharp shooting pain in your heel and soreness in the arch of your foot that is usually worse in the morning or after rest. 

Morton’s neuroma

Morton’s neuroma is a bundle of thickened nerve fibers that develop between the metatarsals behind your third and fourth toes. You might feel like you’re standing on a pebble or have general foot pain.  

Structural abnormalities

Flat feet, high arches, bunions, and hammertoes are just a few of the structural abnormalities that can cause foot pain. These conditions are often painful on their own, but they also affect the way your feet move when you walk, leading to increased pain as well as issues in your knees, hips, and back.

When should I talk to a health care provider about foot pain?

You should make an appointment at White Integrated Health Clinics PLLC if your foot pain persists for more than a few days. Additionally, if your pain becomes more intense instead of better or affects the way your walk or overall mobility, you need to talk to a professional. 

How is the cause of foot pain diagnosed?

The White Integrated Health Clinics team provides thorough exams to identify the cause of your foot pain. After reviewing your symptoms and lifestyle details, your provider examines your feet for inflammation, deformity, or other signs of injury. 

Your provider may also ask you to stand, balance on one foot, or walk around the office so they can see how your foot pain affects your mobility. 

How is foot pain treated?

Your provider creates a personalized treatment plan to address your foot pain. They often combine therapies to maximize your relief. Your provider may recommend orthotics, chiropractic adjustments, physical therapies, cold laser therapy, or regenerative medicine depending on your needs. 

Your provider may also recommend lifestyle changes to help you lose weight and correct musculoskeletal imbalances that could contribute to your foot pain.
