Foot pain is both a debilitating and frustrating experience. When our feet are out of action, it limits our life style, drains our mental well-being, stops us from participating in our sports and hobbies.
When you are experiencing foot pain it is important that you have a consult with a podiatrist to diagnose and compose a treatment plan to manage the problem. There are many reasons why you could be experiencing foot pain, these can include (but not limited to)any of the following:
- Heel pain (plantar fasciosis)
- Achilles tendonosis
- Accessory bones
- Flattened arches
- Excessively high arches
- Stress fractures
- Shin splints
- Diabetic foot
- Foot ulcers
- Nerve damage and impingement
- Hammer toes, claw toes
and the list goes on………………………

- Exercise modification
