Foot Pain Relief in Sun Prairie

As the feet are the foundation of your body, you want them to feel great and function as they should. Unfortunately, foot pain is a common reality that many of us experience for various reasons.

What Causes Foot Discomfort?

There are many bones and joints in the feet that can go out of alignment. There are many different reasons why feet can experience stress and alignment issues. These include

  • Changes in our gait with our walking
  • Running
  • Not wearing supportive footwear
  • Walking barefoot often
It’s also important to recognize that because the feet and the ankles are very closely related, people with unstable ankles will also have trouble with their feet.

The Role of Chiropractic Care and Exercises

Plantar fasciitis is the most common thing that we see in our office as far as foot pain is concerned. This condition is caused by a drop in the foot arch that irritates and stretches the plantar fascia beyond the point of its comfort level and causes irritation, pain and tightness. To address this condition, Dr. Sandy restores the proper alignment of the foot with chiropractic adjustments and provides home exercises and other things that can alleviate foot pain.

How Quickly Can Patients Expect to Feel Relief?

The timeline for experiencing relief can vary significantly depending on several factors, such as how long they’ve had plantar fascia irritation, the extent of degenerative changes in the foot, and the severity of the condition.

We also consider a patient’s activity level and lifestyle. For instance, a woman who has been wearing high heels daily for an extended period, such as 30 years, may require a more extended treatment period to achieve noticeable relief. In contrast, others may experience improvement after just a few adjustments.

Ultimately, the expected relief time frame highly depends on the patient’s specific circumstances, medical history, and the extent of the condition. Dr. Sandy would first need to perform a thorough evaluation to provide a more accurate estimate for each individual case.

How Custom Orthotics Can Help

While our practice does not provide custom orthotics on-site, Dr. Sandy often recommends an inexpensive brand that works quite well. She recommends these inserts on occasion for those who are on their feet a lot for their job or who run. These custom shoe inserts can be purchased locally or online.
