Some types of chronic pain can be ignored, but foot pain quite literally follows you throughout the day. For this reason, if you are experiencing it, we recommend seeing one of our skilled podiatrists to receive specialized treatment. A podiatrist is a healthcare specialist who specifically works with conditions and injuries involving the feet. At Unruh Spine Centers, we have some of the top podiatrists in the area. We will begin by identifying the source of your foot pain to create the appropriate treatment option to meet your needs.
Common causes of chronic foot pain include:
Less common causes of foot pain can include tumors, hammertoe, and certain deformities. Your podiatrist will customize your treatment plan to provide you with the relief you deserve. Among other treatments, your plan might include corrective footwear, orthotic devices, or therapy for fractured bones and inflamed tendons in the foot.

Orthotics as a Simple, Non-Surgical Solution
Orthotics are inserts that are custom-designed to address your foot pain and your overall health concerns. Your insert will be personalized to create healing and relief in your problem areas. We will work to alleviate pressure and strain while preventing further injury or imbalanced weakness.
Orthotics are a particularly popular choice for athletes because they allow the injured person to continue participating in sports while minimizing risk of further foot injury. However, you don’t have to be an athlete or even be extremely active to benefit from orthotics. If you are suffering from one of the issues above and want to find relief for your feet, orthotics might be right for you.
When Should I Worry About Foot Pain?
If you are experiencing persistent pain, such as swelling for multiple days, or if you have been feeling pain in one or both feet for more than a week, we recommend you visit our podiatrists at Unruh Spine Centers. Sometimes, foot pain can be a sign of a serious underlying health concern. If it is accompanied by signs of infection, persistent pain, numbness, or an inability to put weight on your foot, it is best to seek immediate medical attention.
