What You Need to Know About Foot Pain

Foot pain can happen to anyone at any time. It can develop from a wide range of causes, including:

  • Trauma to your feet
  • A sports injury
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Toe injuries or conditions
  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Fractured bones
  • Torn tendons and ligaments

Consider these common toe and foot conditions and how your podiatrist can help:

If you have an ingrown toenail, your podiatrist can trim off or remove the ingrown toenail so your toenail can grow freely

If you have toenail fungus, your podiatrist can use laser therapy to kill the fungus invading your toenail

If you have plantar fasciitis, your podiatrist can fit you with orthotics or custom footwear to help support your feet

If you have damaged the bones, tendons, or ligaments in your feet, your podiatrist can surgically repair the damaged area and restore function

If you have diabetes-related foot problems including diabetic neuropathy, your podiatrist can perform regular foot examinations and discuss medications and other treatments to help eliminate foot pain

Remember that you can do a lot to help prevent foot pain. Follow these simple tips:

  • Wear supportive, protective footwear, and avoid going barefoot
  • Avoid walking on uneven, slippery surfaces which can lead to injuries
  • Examine your feet daily for injuries, swelling, or other abnormalities
  • Visit your podiatrist regularly for a foot examination
