Chattanooga, TN Foot Pain
Everyone experiences sore feet after a long day, but many people experience
foot pain that goes beyond common soreness. Even pain in your knees, hips
and lower back can be connected to your feet since they are the foundation
for your body.
At True Wellness Chiropractic, we treat the foot pain of our Chattanooga,
TN residents. Our specialized chiropractors can discover the source of
your foot pain and treat it at its root. To make an appointment for an
initial evaluation, contact our Chattanooga, TN office at (423) 475-6438.
Causes of Foot Pain and Related Symptoms
There are numerous reasons your feet might hurt. Some common foot issues
we often see include:
Fallen arches: Also known as "flat feet", this problem causes the tendons
in the foot to not pull together as they normally should. Instead of having
a normal arch in the foot, you have a flatter arch or no arch at all.
Plantar fasciitis: Continuous strain on the plantar fascia ligament of the foot can cause
plantar fasciitis, which commonly leads to pain and other problems in the heel.
Morton's neuroma: Generally caused by the toes being continuously squished together, this
problem leads to a swollen nerve in the ball of the foot.
When you have problems in your feet, it can cause related problems in other
parts of your body that move from the ground up. For example, a flat foot
arch causes the foot and ankle to roll inward. This makes your lower leg
move inward; when you walk, extra force presses on your knees and femur,
also affecting the pelvis and hips.
Come to True Wellness Chiropractic for a consultation, so we can determine
if you have one of these common foot problems or another problem. Then,
we will work with you to come up with a treatment plan.
Is a Chiropractor Right for My Foot Pain?
Most people would automatically go to a podiatrist for foot pain, since
they are specialists of the feet. Nonetheless, an experienced chiropractor
is a viable alternative option to provide foot pain relief.
At True Wellness Chiropractic, our experienced chiropractors strive to
provide a natural treatment for your foot pain instead of recommending
options like drugs or surgery. Instead of focusing on the symptoms of
the problem, we discover the cause and directly treat it.
So what kinds of treatment methods can a chiropractor offer? During our
initial evaluation, a chiropractic foot pain doctor will assess the condition
of the bones in your foot, including the tarsal and metatarsal bones.
We will perform an X-ray of your foot and evaluate the muscles and ligaments
that hold the bones in place.
Once we have a better idea of the problem, we will work with you to come
up with a customized solution. Just as we would with other problems throughout
the body, we can perform adjustments on the bones in the foot to correct
their form. We might also suggest other treatment methods like rehabilitation
to strengthen weak muscles or arch supports.
Come In For a Consultation
