Foot Pain and Tight Shoes

Foot pain, no matter the cause, can be considerably uncomfortable and annoying. Many patients who suffer from foot pain often wonder what the exact cause is. Although the answer may be complicated, one common and often overlooked cause of foot pain is wearing shoes that are too tight. When the feet are feeling painful, or sore from wearing tight shoes there are a variety of different things that can be done to relieve the pain. For instance, you may be able to cure the soreness by performing therapeutic stretches, and there are many different kinds and varieties. One such stretch can be performed in a seated position. You might cross one leg over the other and then weave your fingers in between the toes of the foot that is elevated. By spreading the toes apart, you are essentially stretching them. If you are someone that has foot pain, also consider contacting a podiatrist for an evaluation. Schedule an appointment today.

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with our podiatrists from Superior Foot & Ankle Center. Our doctors will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.

To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.
