Why Would Our Chiropractor Address Foot Pain?
It seems odd to many people that a chiropractor would also focus on feet, but the truth is that it’s all connected. Any issue in one area of the musculoskeletal system can impact other areas. For example, a problem in the feet can affect the spine, and pain in the spine can move to the feet. As a chiropractor, they focus on the entire musculoskeletal system.
Chiropractic Foot Pain Treatment for Chronic Foot Pain
Like every other chiropractic treatment plan, the first step is to assess the full skeletal system to determine the source of foot pain. This pain could be an issue in the back, hip, knees, ankles, or the nearly 30 bones and various soft tissues of the foot.
Once the source of pain is identified, a personalized treatment will be developed. This treatment could include one or more of the following methods.
- Adjustments - While adjustments to the spine are the most well-known. Our chiropractor can also perform adjustments for the feet and ankles. Therefore, adjustments will be committed to address anything that needs to be aligned.
- Therapeutic Massage and Exercises - Soft tissues through the legs and feet often become inflamed and tense, leading to chronic foot pain. Massage and targeted exercises can relieve tension, reduce inflammation, and stretch and strengthen the damaged area.
- Custom Orthotics - Shoes are designed with very general foot aspects, so most people cannot find shoes with the proper support. Although, this can cause everything from tired, achy feet to misalignment and slipped discs. Custom orthotics are designed around the aspects of your foot, ensuring the comfort and support you need.
