Foot Pain

Find the source of your problem fast

Have you ever seriously injured your foot? Maybe you hurt it badly enough that you couldn’t walk on it? Well, if you have, you’ll know how debilitating it is: your entire life changes.

A small injury to your foot is a big problem. Break a tiny metatarsal bone , and you’ll be hobbling around on crutches; injure your Achilles tendon, and you can forget about sports until it’s healed. We rely on our feet to get us around and, when we can’t use them, our world becomes instantly much smaller. Avoiding foot pain is one of the most important things you can do as a person who’s interested in health and fitness. A foot injury will sideline your fitness goals for the next month - at least - and stall the best-laid plans.

And what is a physiotherapist for, if not to answer questions from people with concerns about the way their bodies are functioning? Bottom line, the sooner your problem is diagnosed, the sooner you’ll be back at the gym and running around the neighborhood.

Once a diagnosis is made, you need to get treatment . It may be as simple as a course of medication, a foot bath or some strengthening exercises. Or it may be as involved as a cas...
