Foot Pain Treatment

Don’t self-diagnose foot pain - see your doctor

You’re in pain. You don’t want to be in pain. What are you going to do about it?

Well, first things first: we’re not doctors. If you have any uncertainty about what your pain is or how it should be treated, you should consult a physician . Even if you think you know what it is and how it should be treated, if your pain is anything more than mild, it wouldn’t hurt to see a doctor.

Treatment for foot pain and the conditions that cause it can encompass a lot of different methods. Some are mechanical, such as appropriate footwear, braces or bandages, or orthotics. Others are surgical or involve other medical techniques, such as joint manipulation or therapeutic massage. Many involve topical applications, such as creams or medicines, or application of heat, cold, soap or water.

Another category that mustn’t be neglected is exercise: physical fitness - including rehabilitative exercises - can play a key role in treating many types of foot pain. And, of course, some ailments are cured by intelligent inaction; one of the hardest things an injured athlete may have to do is, well, nothing - rest up a joint that’s suffering from overuse, or a ligament that’s been stretched.

So, the number one rule: talk to your doctor. If you don’t get the answers you’re looking for, don’t give up on the medical profession. Talk to another doctor, instead. You have a right to effective treatment, and a right to know what’s going on with your body. But you must exercise that right by seeking out good information. If your general practitioner isn’t up to the task, ask to be referred to a podiatrist.

How is your footwear? A lot of foot aches and pains could be alleviated with smart shoe purchases. If you wear high heels to work everyday and your feet hurt, then here’s a crazy idea: stop wearing bad shoes. Just switching to a more sensible flat may make all the difference.

If you like running, buy a proper running shoe. And replace them when they break down and stop providing cushioning and support - don’t wait until your toe is ripping through the side. Look at the heels of your shoes, too. If you pronate or supinate, wear on the heels will follow suit; if your heels are excessively worn down on one side, you need new shoes (and you should see your doctor about orthotics, too).

Orthotics can be the answer for a lot of foot pain. Think about it: the shoe you’re cramming your foot into wasn’t made ...
