Foot Pain

Twenty-five percent (25%) of the bones of the body are in the feet. On average we walk 6,000 steps per day. If you are a runner or other athlete you could be taking 25,000 or more steps per day. If the joints in your feet aren’t moving properly then those joints, or associated joints (which are compensating and taking more load) will start to hurt. Additionally, if the muscles that support your feet are too tight or if they are inhibited in their function then you will have foot pain. Foot pain can be in the heel, in the arch, or in the toes. Our treatment approach is a comprehensive Sports Medicine approach, which involves finding and gently adjusting joint fixations (“stuck bones”) in the foot, ankle, knee, hip, and low back. These elements all can contribute to foot pain because of our gait cycle (walking, running, etc) and biomechanical interactions. We also work on the muscles using Graston Technique, targeted exercise, foam rolling technique, Kinesiology Tape(RockTape), and customized foot orthotics when indicated. We have great success with all sorts of foot pain issues.
