Foot Pain Q & A

Metropolitan Foot and Ankle Specialists

What causes foot pain?

There are a wide variety of conditions and factors that cause foot pain. Some of the most common causes of foot pain are:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendinitis
  • Fractures or breaks
  • Corns and calluses
  • Bunions
  • Gout
  • Arch issues
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Plantar fasciitis

Foot pain is also caused by underlying medical conditions like Raynaud’s disease, diabetes, and Lyme disease.

Do I need to see a doctor for foot pain?

Sometimes foot pain resolves on its own, but it can still interfere with your daily life and activities. If you’ve tried home remedies but your foot pain isn’t getting better, you should schedule an appointment at Metropolitan Foot and Ankle Specialists.

It’s also a good idea to see a physician for foot pain if:

  • You can’t put weight on your foot
  • You have redness, swelling, or inflammation in your foot that doesn’t subside
  • Your foot is infected
  • You have severe pain during activity or at rest

If you have diabetes, it’s also important to see a specialist for foot pain since it can lead to health complications.

How is foot pain treated?

Treatment for foot pain depends on the cause. Your physician will take X-rays or perform diagnostic tests to determine what’s causing your foot pain. Many treatments begin with ice, rest, and compression.

Your physician might recommend cortisone injections to manage inflammation and swelling. If calluses, bunions, or corns cause your pain, you might need a procedure to stop these problems from getting worse.

Metropolitan Foot and Ankle Specialists also offers custom digital foot orthotics, which help to support your feet and toes during everyday activities.

In cases where your feet don’t get better with these treatments, your physician may recommend surgery.

What results can I expect with foot pain treatment?

The best way to approach foot pain is to see a foot and ankle specialist. Your physician will do everything possible to help you relieve pain, recover from injury, and get back to your normal activities quickly.
