Your feet support your body weight, propel movement, and absorb the shock every time your feet hit the ground. They’re vulnerable to injuries, degenerative disease, and a host of deformities. As a result, foot pain is a common problem.
Conditions that often cause foot pain include:
Any of these conditions can lead to chronic foot pain, but they’re not the only causes. Many people end up with chronic foot pain as a result of aging, spending long periods of time standing, and wearing tight shoes or high heels.
Pain is often the first symptom, but you may also develop:
If your symptoms don’t improve or you have severe pain, don’t wait to see a foot specialist. Ignoring foot and ankle pain only leads to ongoing damage to your muscles, ligaments, tendons, and bones.
The first line of treatment includes conventional medical care dealing with the cause of your foot pain. But when your pain persists, becomes debilitating, or you want to avoid surgery, Sage Pain & Wellness Institute offers cutting-edge treatments such as:
Steroids diminish foot pain by reducing inflammation. Using ultrasound guidance, your provider precisely injects steroids in any area of your foot, treating inflammation in the tendons, nerves, ligaments, and joints.
The platelets in PRP accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, and support new tissue regeneration. Your provider may recommend PRP injections for many causes of foot pain, including tendon and ligament tears, osteoarthritis, plantar fasciitis, and neuropathy.
Radiofrequency ablation uses low-energy radio waves to precisely wound a nerve. The wound blocks nerve signals traveling from the foot to your brain, effectively easing your pain. The treatment can last nine months or longer until the nerve heals.
Neurostimulation includes several treatments, like peripheral nerve stimulation, dorsal root ganglion (DRG) stimulation, and spinal cord stimulation, that use mild electrical impulses to block pain signals.
The team provides advanced wound care for diabetic foot ulcers and other foot injuries.
