Suffering with foot pain is very debilitating and can grind your daily activities to a halt. Just as with back pain, your feet are integral to your well-being and your ability to get around. At Springfield Chiropractic Clinic, we’re proud to be able to offer you the relief that comes from removing foot pain and allowing you to stand and walk like normal once again. Some problems can be addressed with special shoe inserts called orthotics. In more serious cases, or when orthotics and other non-invasive treatment options prove to be ineffective, you may need to consider a surgical alternative. But when you have issues such as flat feet, heel spurs, and plantar fasciitis, you can count on our Springfield foot care to help.
Flat feet occurs when you have insufficient or nonexistent arches. Symptoms are not always present, but when you start to experience pain in your feet and legs, it’s a good idea to seek our help. Orthotics are typically very helpful. They can correct for the lack of arch and allow you walk more naturally again. This is one of the more simple conditions to solve and you should call us to schedule an appointment for our Springfield foot care at your earliest convenience.
Plantar fasciitis is a foot problem in which the thick, tough tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes becomes strained. Over time, small tears can form. The result is often swelling, irritation, and inflammation. You’re more at risk if you spend a great deal of time on your feet and risk factors include flat feet, high arches, poor-fitting shoes, and being overweight. Let our Springfield foot care offer diagnosis and treatment.
When you develop calcium deposits on the underside of your heel bone, these are known as heel spurs. Muscle or ligament strain is generally at fault for the formation of them. Flat feet, high arches, and diabetes all make you more prone to heel spurs. You may have both plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. It’s not uncommon for them both to be present at the same time. Orthotics from our Springfield foot care can be a good solution for either.
