Foot Pain Q & A

What causes foot pain?

Your circulatory system works hard to pump nutrient-rich blood out to your extremities. But because your system has to work particularly hard against gravity in your lower legs and feet, sometimes seemingly minor injuries or conditions quickly become serious. Foot pain may stem from:

  • Heel spurs or plantar fasciitis
  • Bursitis, tendinitis, or tumors
  • Rheumatoid or osteoarthritis
  • Peripheral neuropathy, possibly from diabetes

The longer you ignore your foot pain or put off seeing a doctor at Advanced Medical Group, the worse your condition may become.

When should I see a doctor for foot pain?

If your foot pain is starting to affect your quality of life and making it difficult for you to do the things you enjoy, it’s time to schedule an evaluation at Advanced Medical Group. You should also see your dedicated practitioner if your foot pain is associated with:

  • Swelling or inflammation (edema)
  • Redness or high fever
  • Inability to bear weight on the affected foot

You’re particularly prone to foot ulcers and nerve damage if you have diabetes, so make an appointment right away if you have a wound or feel numbness. These could indicate that your blood sugar is out of control, you’re having severe circulatory issues or both.

How is foot pain treated?

Foot pain can stem from a variety of issues, and the team at Advanced Medical Group spends time thoroughly diagnosing you to find the exact cause. Using an in-office lower extremity ultrasound and possibly an X-ray image, your practitioner can get to the root of what’s causing your discomfort. They may even order a blood test to evaluate your blood sugar and check for inflammation.

Once they have a better understanding of what’s triggering your foot pain, your treatment plan can include:

  • Diabetes management
  • Cortisone injections
  • Specialized stretches and medications
  • Anti-inflammatory medications

Depending on your diagnosis, you might also need foot surgery. Your dedicated practitioner at Advanced Medical Group can use minimally invasive procedures to repair soft tissue damage or resolve vein and vessel issues, among other treatments. Rest assured, if you do need surgery, the team cares for you every step of the way.
