Can Chiropractic Help with Pain in My Feet?

Home » Healing » Can Chiropractic Help with Pain in My Feet?

Who hasn’t complained of achy feet in his or her lifetime? We cram our feet into shoes that are sometimes too small (and don’t even get me started on high heels), and some of us are on our feet all day with our jobs. Therefore, those two appendages are supporting the weight of our bodies on a regular basis.

There are 26 bones in the foot and ankle, not to mention all of the muscles, tendons and ligaments connecting them. Problems with the feet often occur because these muscles, tendons and ligaments become extremely tight, and unless you get regular work on your feet, or stretch out those muscles with specific exercises, the muscles will stay tight, which will lead to more problems down the road.

One of the conditions that chiropractors often treat is plantar fasciitis, which is the inflammation of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is a thick portion of connective tissue that runs along the base of your foot. Another is metatarsalgia, which refers to pain in the ball of the foot. It can be described as an aching, burning pain and is caused by improper footwear, repetitive activities or poor foot mechanics.

Just as chiropractors do with the problems in your back and spine, we can identify the root of the foot pain. Homberg Chiropractic and Wellness can detect where the inflammation is, provide treatment to decrease the swelling and help alleviate the pain. Remember, foot pain is like any other pain in your body, if it gets to the point where you are experiencing pain then the condition is not new and the best treatment is a good maintenance plan.
