Decoding Foot Pain

Foot pain can stem from various sources, including injuries, overuse, or underlying medical conditions like arthritis or diabetes. It affects people of all ages and activity levels, from athletes to office workers, and can manifest as sharp or dull pain, stiffness, swelling, or tingling sensations. Identifying the root cause is necessary for effective management. Common remedies include rest, compression, and elevation, in addition to wearing supportive footwear. In some cases, custom orthotics may be recommended to address biomechanical issues contributing to foot pain. If you have persistent or severe foot pain, it is suggested that you schedule an appointment with a chiropodist for professional evaluation, diagnosis, and a tailored treatment plan.

Foot pain can have many causes. To receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment for your foot pain, please consult with one of the chiropodists from Complete Family Footcare & Therapy. Our clinicians will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment. 


There are a variety of different conditions that can cause foot pain, including: 

  • Plantar fasciitis

  • Deformities, such as bunions or hammertoes

  • Injuries to the muscles, bones, tendons, or ligaments in the feet

  • Arthritis

  • Flat feet

  • Ingrown toenails


The type and location of your foot pain can help determine what may be causing it and what type of treatment options are best for you. 

Common types of foot pain include: 

  • Heel pain

  • Arch pain

  • Toe pain

  • Ball of foot pain

  • Pain that has a stabbing, burning, or tingling quality

  • Pain that is constant, intermittent, or that gets better or worse depending on the situation 


A thorough medical history and physical examination of your feet will be required to determine a diagnosis. Imaging studies, such as X-rays or MRIs may be performed to rule out or confirm certain diagnoses. 


Treatment will depend on the cause of the pain. Common treatments for foot pain include resting, icing, compressing, and elevating the affected foot, wearing orthotics, or taking anti-inflammatory medications.
