How to Combat Foot Pain

How to Combat Foot Pain

If you suffer from a problem with your feet, then it is important that you do everything you can to ease the pain. Often the best way to combat foot pain is to visit a professional clinic like Procare Podiatric Medicine & Surgery, so that we can work out what is causing the problem and find a way to fix it. Managing the pain is just a small part of the process, and if possible, it is far better to find out what is causing the pain and rectify the problem rather than just keep the pain at bay with medicine.

We will be able to help you to work out what is causing your foot pain and find a remedy to cure it or create a plan on how to manage the pain. Our podiatry services include everything from surgery to massage and medicine to physiotherapy.

Podiatry Services

Our qualified podiatrist will be able to offer all of the following services:

  • Diabetes foot assessments
  • Specialist ankle and foot appointments
  • Wound care
  • Nail restoration
  • Foot and ankle disorders
  • Lower extremity vascular assessment
  • Athletic foot injuries

You may need to have surgery to rectify the problem with your foot or you may be able to cure the problem without surgery. However this is something only a professional can advise you about.

You might also need to get a mould of your foot made using a modern 3D orthotics scanner, as this will help us to assess the problem.

Diabetic Foot Problems

Diabetes can lead to a number of different health problems but did you know it can affect your feet? Patients who have diabetes are at a high risk of having a problem with their feet due to blood vessel and nerve damage. Diabetes also slows the healing process if you have injured your foot in an accident and the best way to treat diabetic foot pain is to prevent them from happening in the first place. We offer professional advice about how you can do this and being educated about your feet is a great way to pre-empt a problem before it happens if you suffer from diabetes.

Foot Surgery

If you have a problem with your feet and you suspect you might need to have surgery done, then you will need to make an appointment with our specialist foot doctor. It is important for us to be able to use our feet and ankles in order to function on a daily basis and anyone who suffers from pain in this part of their body will need to seek professional help.

Below are some of the painful problems that can be fixed with surgery:

  • Pain in the bones
  • Muscle aches
  • Problems with the joints
  • Ligament issues
  • Congenital deformities

Our experienced podiatric surgeon will be able to offer expert advice about what you need to do in order to prevent and treat a wide variety of foot-related problems, whether you need to manage your pain or repair an injury.
