Foot Pain

Foot Pain and Chiropractic Treatments

Foot pain is a common complaint affecting millions of people daily. Whether your pain stems from a minor sprain or a significant injury, your chiropractor near you can help. Spine Pain Center in Summerville, SC, can treat foot pain with holistic and non-invasive chiropractic care. We are here to tell you more about the causes, symptoms, and chiropractic treatments for foot pain.


Causes and Symptoms of Foot Pain

The foot is a complex structure containing 26 bones, numerous joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. All these components work together to bear weight, absorb shock, and propel us forward during movement. Unfortunately, several factors can result in foot pain, such as:

  • Overuse injuries: Repetitive activities like running or standing for long periods can strain the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the foot, leading to conditions like plantar fasciitis and tendonitis.
  • Improper footwear: Shoes that lack proper arch support or are ill-fitting often lead to pain and discomfort.
  • Arthritis: Degenerative joint diseases like osteoarthritis sometimes cause pain, stiffness, and swelling in the feet.
  • Neuropathy: This condition may cause pain, burning sensations, numbness, and tingling in the feet.
  • Trauma: Injuries such as sprains, fractures, and nerve impingement can lead to significant foot pain.

Depending on the underlying cause of your condition, you may experience sharp or dull pain in the heel, arch, ball, or toes. Some people can have foot pain alongside swelling, redness, and stiffness. Others may have trouble walking or bearing weight and numbness, tingling, or burning sensations.

Chiropractic Care for Foot Pain

Our chiropractors will evaluate your physical health and range of motion to identify the source of your foot pain. Once we determine the cause of your ailment, our chiropractors may perform one or more of the following to help you regain pain-free movement:

  • Chiropractic adjustments: Misalignments in the spine can sometimes contribute to foot pain by affecting how weight is distributed across the body. Chiropractic adjustments aim to restore proper spinal alignment, improve foot function, and reduce pain.
  • Corrective exercises: Strengthening and stretching exercises can improve foot stability and flexibility, reducing the risk of future injuries.
  • Orthotic recommendations: Custom-made orthotics can provide additional arch support and improve your foot’s function, alleviating pain and promoting proper foot alignment.
  • Lifestyle adjustments: We may recommend lifestyle adjustments, such as weight management, posture correction, and proper lifting techniques, to manage foot pain.
