The value that your feet provide is unmeasurable considering the long list of actions they allow us to follow through with on a daily basis. From the moment you step out of bed to the time that you close your car door when you arrive home from work, your feet serve as one of the most important resources you have. Unfortunately, despite the value that both extremities provide, the thought of protecting these areas of your body is often overlooked or ignored until some type of accident takes place or painful condition develops.
If you have recently been involved in some type of accident that has damaged your feet, or have suffered from acute pain for some time now, make sure you give our office a call as soon as possible. Allowing these particular areas of your body to go without treatment will only increase your risk of developing some type of debilitating, painful condition later in life that may not be treatable.
Athletes and those who remain physically active are particularly susceptible to the following injuries:
Due to how versatile your feet are and the fact that they are used on a constant, daily basis, it’s easy for stress to build up around the joints and ligaments that run through both physical extensions.
Excessive stress that’s placed on your joints and ankles can create a significant amount of pain over time, while also influencing the onset of other conditions such as arthritis. Basic activities such as:
All have the potential to wear down your feet over time, especially if you are not actively working with medical professionals to eliminate this tension or relieve your chronic pain.
The reason why your feet are so sensitive to everyday, seemingly trivial activities is because of how both extremities consist of small bones and muscles that are extremely fragile. That’s why those who work in some type of office environment and type on a computer visit a chiropractor to treat arthritis more often than other professions.
The stress that this type of occupation places on your ligaments and soft tissue causes pain, weakness, immobility, and significant irritation or inflammation. Our Jonesboro Chiropractors specialize in treating foot pain and can pinpoint the precise source of your discomfort, offering appropriate treatment that realigns your bones and allows for proper circulation.
The most common mistake people make with their feet is buying another expensive pair of shoes or custom insoles to treat pain. Shoes and insoles can be a great help, but rarely is the addition of padding under the foot going to solve the underlying problem that is causing the pain that you feel. For that, the best line of defense is to take the issue seriously and approach a doctor of chiropractic who specializes in treating the foot.
Underfoot conditions such as these can be helped by attending to the bone structures that support your weight, and ensuring they are aligned.
If you are currently in pain, then the time to schedule an examination with one of our experienced doctors is now. There is no reason you should allow yourself to live with pain, especially if it’s preventing you from following through with your responsibilities and goals.
