Relief of Foot & Heel Pain for Brampton Patients
Many individuals suffer from chronic foot and heel pain in Brampton, and Sandalwood Chiropractic & Wellness Centre offers a number of solutions for relief. In many cases, orthotics or special shoes are recommended to ease the pain. The second step is to diagnose the root cause of the problem. The foot is supported by 26 bones. If you suffer from foot or heel pain, it is likely that the bones are out of alignment and need to be carefully adjusted by a trained professional. A proper diagnosis will also help determine the proper type of orthotics you need, so it is important to see an experienced chiropractor who can provide that service.
Types of Foot & Heel Pain
Foot and heel pain can be caused by a number of factors; however some of the complaints we hear from our patients most frequently include:
Heel Pain – Often a problem first thing in the morning or after sitting for an extended period of time, heel pain is often associated with occupations that require a lot of time standing and walking, or in patients who are active in sports that are hard on the feet. It is important to have your feet examined by a professional if you experience foot and heel pain because it can be a sign of more serious problems, such as heel spurs or calcium deposits.
Achilles Tendonitis – Often afflicting athletes and dancers, Achilles Tendonitis is a common condition that causes pain along the back of the leg near the heel. It can be extremely painful and debilitating. Typically not related to a specific injury, the problem is usually caused by repetitive stress to the tendon.
Flat Feet – All of us start life with flat feet, with most people developing arches as the body grows and develops. However, some people never develop the arch and a percentage of that number will experience pain or discomfort.
Anyone can experience foot pain, especially those of us who are advanced in age, have poor posture or are obese. If you are troubled by pain in your feet or heels, Sandalwood Chiropractic & Wellness Centre can help. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
