Foot pain can be debilitating. That’s why at Desert Foot Surgeons, we provide foot pain treatment Phoenix for patients with the goal of alleviating their painful symptoms as quickly as possible. Foot pain treatment can be done for patients with diabetes, or who suffer from ankle pain, or who may need orthotics. Foot pain does not have to be something you live with, it can be treated.
Orthotics are devices used to support the foot in the form of custom shoe inserts, which help to relieve discomfort and pain. Orthotics treat imbalances that affect walking and standing, bunions, and diabetic foot problems. The goal of orthotic therapy is to provide support to the patient in the form of a comfortable and well-fitted shoe. Orthotics help patients live pain free lifestyles and feel better about walking and moving around, while no longer having to live with foot pain. This kind of foot pain treatment Phoenix is best done at our offices after an evaluation.
Diabetics are also prone to foot injuries and require foot pain treatment Phoenix. Diabetes is an endocrine disease that damages the nervous system. The nervous system extends to the foot, so those who suffer from diabetes sometimes lose sensation in the feet, making them more prone to infection. This can affect walking and running, by breaking down the skin on the feet and leading to pressure on the foot’s joints, skin and bones. Orthotics help ease diabetic foot pain and cushion the foot. Properly fitted shoes can also go a long way. Without well fitted shoes, patients may develop sores or blisters, making it even harder to walk. This can lead to infection or worse. Over time, these problems begin to aggravate the foot and can lead to other painful conditions like bunions or hammertoe.
