Podiatrists can help you conquer foot pain and stay active!

Many Americans walk, run, and cycle for exercise, especially in the spring as it gets warmer outside. These are great activities for fitness and health, and they all have one common denominator: heavy use of feet and ankles. Unfortunately, people with foot pain have difficulty with these activities, but they can get help from a podiatrist.

If you’re wanting to get active but are experiencing foot pain, visit a podiatrist. Your doctor can determine what is causing the pain and how to treat it. Common treatments that allow you to get back on your feet include:

  • Custom orthotics
  • Shoes, supports, and pads
  • Lotions
  • Physical therapy
  • Shockwave therapy

Your podiatrist will always look for the most conservative approach to treatment. More severe injuries, however, may require foot surgery. Though the recovery time is more lengthy with surgery, the results will have you feeling better and back to doing the things you love!
