Treating the Cause, Not Just the Symptoms of Heel Pain
Frustrated that the padding under the heel did not get rid of the problem? Ingrown toenail? Antibiotics did not solve it? That’s because in each case, the symptoms, not the cause was treated. Heel pain – plantar fasciitis – is caused by an excessive stretch of the band running through the arch known as the plantar fascia. There are many physical/mechanical reasons that this can occur and it differs from person to person. Ingrown toenails occur when the nail has actually pierced the flesh of the toe.
Antibiotics will help to clear the infection, but if it is truly ingrown, the nail is still sticking into the toe! Sometimes the scoliosis does not originate in the back, but is a result of an undiagnosed leg length difference. Often knee pain that shows nothing on x-ray is the result of leg rotation when the foot flattens out.
A chiropodist is trained to do a thorough examination that should reveal the cause of your problem, so it, not just the symptoms can be treated. We can determine the cause of your problem, and treat it. You don’t need to be uncomfortable or be in pain any longer.
