When your feet hurt, you hurt all over!
Your feet play a vital role in maintaining your overall health. Whether you’re walking or standing, your entire body’s weight is balanced on your feet. Because of this, foot problems can be painful and may lead to limitations in one’s lifestyle. Remember, it is not normal for your feet to hurt.
Yet, as common as foot problems are, the feet are generally the most neglected part of the body. Many people suffer from some type of foot ailment. Certain medical groups such as diabetics, rheumatoid arthritis, and the elderly, for example, are at an even higher risk for the development of severe foot problems. Keeping all this in mind, you will soon realize how important it is that you give your feet the attention they deserve.
Foot problems are most easily treated before they become serious. Simple palliative and accommodative methods can usually offer significant relief for many patients without invasive intervention. Early detection and treatment can lead to a shorter recovery time and prevent progression to a more serious condition. Therefore, it is important that you contact our office whenever you suspect a problem with your feet.
