Do you suffer from foot pain due to ankle sprains, bunions, flat feet, hammertoes, diabetes, heel spurs, corns, or athlete’s foot? If you’re looking for a podiatrist that can treat any and all of those conditions, especially if you suffer from heel pain, then it’s time you visit the podiatry office of Family Footcare, P.C. Our foot doctor uses traditional and complementary techniques in treatment for heel pain in Southfield.
Foot pain can be caused by many different things. Heel pain, for example, is most often caused by overuse, instead of an injury. Heel pain as a result of overuse can be due to many things, including wearing shoes with poor support, running too often, especially on hard surfaces, sudden turning of your heel, or landing too hard or awkwardly on your heel. Connective tissue that runs from the toes to the heel bone causes heel pain, also known as heel spur syndrome. Adult heel pain generally occurs upon standing and diminishes with walking. There are many types of treatment for heel pain in Southfield, depending on the severity of your pain, including anti-inflammatory medications, ice packs, stretching exercises, orthotic devices, and/or physical therapy. Statistics show, quicker resolution of pain is achieved the sooner you seek medical attention. The longer you experience the pain the more difficult it is to resolve.
At the podiatry office of Family Footcare, P.C., we view the person as a sum of all the body parts. For example, we will not treat just the foot as a foot problem but we will address other aspects of the body which have a correlation. This allows us to treat the whole body, not just the foot or the heel. We can treat the problem at the core, not just take away the symptoms of it. By making our podiatrist your foot doctor, you’ll be one step closer to alleviating your heel pain in Southfield and having healthy and happy feet, ankles, and heels.
