Foot pain, fracture, and pain in the arch of the foot, treatment and solutions.
We have a variety of options for foot pain solutions. From broken toe, plantar fasciitis, bone spurs, diabetic foot problems, pain in the arch of the foot, to bunion post op surgery shoes.
Common cause of foot pain and treatment options:
- Diabetic foot problems - Diabetic foot often occurs from lack of circulation of the leg and foot. Diabetic ulcers are commonly treated by keeping pressure from that wound area. A post op shoe will help speed recovery. Also using an insert such as Peg Assist will help take pressure off of a diabetic wound.
- Stress Fracture in the foot - Often over use, running, a simple drop of an item on the foot, or a fall can cause a stress fracture. Stress fractures are easy to heal with a medical cam walker boot. This will help keep your foot protected and stable while it does the natural process of healing. Some fractures will require first a fiberglass cast immobilization and then a transition to a medical walking boot. Treatment often varies per different doctors. Fiberglass Casting option provides better patient compliance and better fracture protection which is a major factory in recovery. The medical boot should be a second option or follow up treatment.
- Plantar Fasciitis - pain in the arch or heel of the foot is due to a condition called plantar fasciitis. The best treatment is to stretch the plantar fascia ligament with a night splint.
