Your feet allow you to run, walk, dance, exercise, and jump for joy ― it's no wonder your feet are prone to stress and injury. Together, your two feet carry a whopping 52 bones, 66 joints, as well as 100s of muscles and nerves. At BodyPro Chiropractic and Sports Medicine in Los Angeles, Dr. Arash Noor is dedicated to helping you heal and support your feet so you can log the most miles and maintain an active life.
Unlike the common fatigue you feel after a long day of standing or walking, chronic foot pain can indicate a different type of problem that needs to be addressed with medical care.
A variety of conditions can lead to foot pain, so it’s important to address the cause in order to benefit most from treatment.
The causes of foot pain usually fall into one of two categories:
Injury or stress-related foot pain, which comes from a broken bone, a fracture, a sprain, a torn ligament, or some other type of strain in your foot, toes, or ankle.
Condition-specific foot pain, which can develop if you’re suffering from an ailment such as:
Foot pain can become worse if you’re involved in athletics or daily activities that cause constant stress to your feet. It can also develop if you’re wearing narrow shoes, unsupportive shoes, high heels, cramped or small shoes, or if you are wearing foot wear that lacks the traction necessary to keep your feet firmly grounded while walking or exercising.
As the foundational structure for your entire body, your feet deserve support and attention to remain healthy and injury-free. Chiropractic care can help you understand the cause of foot pain and offer a path toward long-term healing and recovery.
Dr. Noor will customize a specific treatment plan to help reduce your inflammation or swelling, manage your pain, and support your foot through chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy exercises. In chiropractic medicine, all systems of the body are connected, which means treating foot pain might also involve making adjustments to other areas, like your hips or back.
In addition to your chiropractic treatment plan, you may benefit from some at-home practices to ease your foot pain. Dr. Noor will advise what is best for your specific needs, and these may include:
