Professional Foot Pain Diagnosis & Treatment

Correct diagnosis of foot pain is an essential first step for effective treatment. Pain in the feet, lower leg, and back are our body’s way of saying something is wrong and requires attention. The Podiatrist’s at myPod Podiatry are trained professionals who know exactly which tests to perform and what symptoms to look for, to ensure correct diagnosis of your foot pain.

All too often, people ignore the signs of foot pain, hoping it will go away with time. However, if pain in the feet or legs hasn’t resolved itself within a few days, it needs to be examined by a qualified Podiatrist. At MyPod Podiatry, we’ve helped thousands of patients get back on their feet to enjoy the sports, activities, and quality of life they love.

Common Causes Of Foot Pain

Foot pain is typically the result of trauma, overuse (sport or repetitive movement), or a chronic condition such as arthritis or diabetes. Each situation requires a tailored approach based on the severity and cause of the pain, the patient’s general health and fitness, and the desired outcome of the patient.

  • Achilles tendinitis or tendon rupture
  • Arthritis
  • Bone spurs
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Bunions
  • Bursitis
  • Corns and calluses
  • Diabetic neuropathy or diabetic foot
  • Flat feet or high arches
  • Hammertoe

Having Foot Pain Diagnosed by a Qualified Professional

Foot and ankle biomechanics is very complex. There are dozens of components all working in tandem which require an adequate range of motion to function correctly. If one part of the foot isn’t functioning correctly, it can affect different parts of your body from your ankles, up your legs and into your hips and lower back.

Correct diagnosis of foot pain requires knowledge of the foot and lower leg that only a qualified Podiatrist can provide. At MyPod Podiatry, we use cutting-edge technology and the latest techniques to diagnose foot pain and develop treatment plans tailored to every patient.
