We all must face at least a little pain at some point in our lives. It comes in a variety of flavors, even when you narrow the area down to just your feet and ankles!
Is it a dull ache? Maybe more of a sharp, shooting pain? Or does it just feel like you’re stepping on some phantom object?
“Foot & ankle pain” is a very broad category with plenty of potential causes. Our goal is always to discover the cause and provide you the best, most efficient treatments to make your discomfort a memory.
Treating Chronic Foot Pain
Too many people refrain from seeking help for their pain, for too long. They either feel that it will go away on its own, or that it’s something they simply must deal with. Either case just isn’t true, though!
In many cases, there is plenty we can do to manage or entirely eliminate pain in the foot or ankle. Holding off on treatment isn’t only unnecessary, but can, in some cases, lead to further damage.
When you come to Capital Podiatry Associates, you can be assured we will do all that we need to get to the root of what’s causing your pain. Once we find that, we can recommend a course of treatment that will best suit your needs and lifestyle.
In some cases, treatment might take the form of custom orthotics, stretching exercises, and a change in routine. In others, we might recommend laser therapy to relieve pain and encourage the healing of damaged soft tissues. Everything is determined on a patient-by patient basis.
The worst thing you can do for your foot and ankle pain is nothing at all! Give our Alexandria office a call at (703) 560-3773 to schedule an appointment with us today.
