Foot Pain

If foot pain is hampering your lifestyle, you need an assessment to find the cause and a plan to get you on the road to recovery. We can work with you and get you active again.

Foot pain can take many forms, and it can be very difficult to see for yourself what is going on. Sometimes you only have pain when you first put your foot to the ground, this is true of conditions like plantar fasciitis and other times you may have pain only after long periods on your feet. Maybe it's only after certain activities or wearing a particular type of footwear.

Listening to you and finding out about your pain, how it feels, where it hurts, what makes it worse and what makes it better helps us come up with a treatment plan to get you on the road to recovery.
