Understanding Foot Pain After a Car Accident & How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Everything In One Place The One Stop Pharmacy
Common Types & Causes of Foot Pain
Both of your feet are composed of elaborate arrangements of 26 small bones and 33 joints, layered with tendons, ligaments, and muscles to facilitate the movement of your foot. When the bones of the foot become misaligned due to injury or overuse, nerves become irritated and connective tissue becomes inflamed, causing pain to the foot and surrounding areas.
Common causes of foot pain include:
- Stress Fractures
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Metatarsalgia– inflammation of the joints of the ball of the foot
- Turf toe– strained tendon under the joint at the base of the big toe
- Sprains and Muscle Strains
- Achilles Tendonitis
Foot pain can happen on the top, side, arch or heal of your foot. Many times when you wear shoes that aren’t supportive enough or don’t fit correctly you will experience pain or foot problems, which can sometimes lead to knee pain. When you wear shoes that fit you properly it will give your feet and arches the support they need to prevent and reduce the risk of injury.
How Can Foot Pain Affect Your Life?
Short Term Impact of Foot Pain
Some foot pain, like the pain from standing on your feet all day, can be reduced at home with elevation, or ice. When you experience foot pain or just can’t seem to get it to go away it can be an indication that there is something else happening. Also, short term foot pain that is sharp, or limits your ability to put weight on your foot is a sign of a more serious problem.
Long Term Impact of foot Pain
Long-term or chronic foot pain can lead to more serious issues or diseases. The longer you deal with foot pain the more challenging it can be to get it resolved fully. Also, it is very important to get a full evaluation from a qualified chiropractor to fully understand the type and cause of your pain, so that appropriate actions can be taken to resolve your pain.
