How Bad Is Foot Pain?

Foot pain is an ailment that comes up when you have an injury or medical problem with one or both of your feet. Women especially complain of foot pain, along with ankle pain, after they remove their high heels. Sometimes, the pain is accompanied by an open wound that has oozing pus or there is redness or tenderness around the pain area.

Consulting a foot doctor to get your pain analyzed is the best path to recovery. The pain management doctors at New York Pain Care are experts in all kinds of foot problems. Dr. Amr Hosny is a well-known pain care doctor who relieves most foot pain without surgery.

What Can Cause Foot Pain?

If you have a foot pain, look no further than your shoes. There’s a high probability that improper footwear is the reason behind your suffering. While high heels cause more grief for women, wearing shoes with the heels worn out can also damage your feet. When you walk or run, the shock absorbers don’t provide enough protection for your feet.

There are many other ways you can develop foot pain. Your feet bear your weight and take a lot of abuse. Some of the causes of foot pain include:

  • Tight shoes that cause pain on top of the foot
  • Achilles tendonitis, which causes pain at the back of the heel
  • Flat feet, a condition that shows up as pain in the arch of the foot
  • Posterior tibial tendonitis
  • Bone spurs
  • Stress fractures
  • Plantar fasciitis, which causes bottom of heel foot pain
  • A broken foot or sprain that causes pain at the side of the foot
  • Bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • A sports injury
  • Blisters
  • Gout
  • An abscess
  • An ingrown toenail
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Raynaud’s phenomenon
  • Shin splints
  • Bunions and corns
  • Trauma, as in a car accident or a bad fall

Why Do I Need to See a Foot Specialist?

The pain in your foot may be related to other medical conditions, such as diabetes, iliotibial band syndrome and sacroiliac joint pain. These conditions can cause pain in other parts of your body, giving rise to knee pain, hip pain or back pain.

Foot specialists like Dr. Hosny and the team at New York Pain Care are able to identify the root cause of your pain. Then they can offer appropriate treatments like neuropathy foot pain treatment for problems with the peripheral nerves. You should see a foot specialist when you have symptoms that include:

  • Severe pain that starts suddenly
  • Open wounds on your feet that aren’t healing
  • Swelling in your foot or ankle
  • Your foot feels tender to touch
  • A visible bone sticking out from an accident or injury
  • A foot deformity, likely from birth
  • Pain that doesn’t allow you to put weight on your foot
  • No feeling in your toes or a pins-and-needles feeling in your toes
  • A fever that accompanies the pain

Which Foot Pain Treatment Works Best?

Getting the right foot treatment depends on an accurate diagnosis. The foot pain you feel is just one of the many symptoms used to diagnose your condition. A nerve pain in foot treatment addresses a pinched nerve, while foot arch pain treatment helps fallen arches. The best way to get pain relief starts with reducing the swelling with ice and taking over-the-counter painkillers. Your foot doctor may suggest other treatments as well, such as:

  • Keeping your foot elevated while you sit or sleep
  • Using arch supports that help reduce the pain caused by flat feet
  • Wearing a medical walking shoe or boot that provides support while limiting your foot movement
  • Using compression tape to help reduce the swelling
  • Getting trigger point injections or epidural steroid injections, which work best when the pain is extreme
  • Attending physical therapy sessions to remedy certain foot conditions
  • Doing targeted stretching exercises to strengthen weak muscles and tendons
  • Wearing braces, a cast or a splint to prevent further damage to your feet
  • Using crutches temporarily to help keep your balance while you try to keep your weight off one foot
  • Using shoe inserts to improve your foot alignment
  • Getting a massage or acupuncture treatment
