Getting to the Bottom of Foot Pain
Sore feet do more than cause pain and suffering; they indicate the presence of some imbalance or structural weakness. The underlying problem may originate in the feet themselves, or it may occur in the spine, hips, knees or other weight-bearing joints.
Here at Insight Chiropractic, we know how musculoskeletal issues can cause foot problems -- and we know what to do about it, from orthotics and spinal adjustment to ongoing wellness care, we can treat the problem from the bottom up.
Our San Jose Chiropractor Can Treat Your Feet
Your feet must carry the entire weight of your body every time you stand or walk, sometimes for hours on end. If that load is unbalanced, one foot or a particular part of both feet may become strained. Plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the connective tissue that supports the arch, is one example common to clerks, nurses, and others who spend their working day on their feet.
Fallen arches or "flat feet" can cause considerable pain and may be either congenital or caused by certain types of footwear such as high heels. Subluxations anywhere along the spine can throw your weight off axis and put undue strain on the feet. Auto accident injuries, personal injuries or sports injuries are other common causes of musculoskeletal foot pain.
Walk your sore feet into our clinic so our San Jose chiropractor, Dr. Forster, can find out what underlying issue is causing you pain. She can perform a digital foot scan and prescribe Foot Levelers orthotics to stabilize weak, malformed or "flat" feet.
We can also evaluate your weight distribution and posture to determine whether you need a spinal adjustment, massage or a combination of multiple therapies. We have found that correcting even small subluxations can restore the body's balance -- and that is good news for tired feet. Once we have treated the problem, we can prescribe strengthening exercises and other wellness care to keep your feet in good shape.
