Foot pain can come in various forms and for a number of different reasons. When discomfort is experienced, it’s extremely important that you visit with a podiatrist who can properly diagnose the reason for the pain. Common causes of foot pain may include overuse injuries, such as from sporting activities like running. Other causes include complications due to arthritis, as well as diabetes. There are a number of foot conditions that can lead to foot pain as well.

Foot Pain Symptoms

Many patients have experienced severe foot discomfort due to bunions, plantar warts, hammertoes, stress fractures, blisters, ingrown toenails, and corns and calluses, to name a few. Foot pain is often associated with the following symptoms: swelling, redness, warmth, tenderness, discoloration, stiffness, as well as burning, tingling, and numbing sensations. It may help to check the feet daily for any abnormalities or deformities that may be causing the foot pain. Treatment for foot pain will vary on a case by case basis, along with the recovery process.

If you’re experiencing foot pain, we recommend you consult with a podiatrist for a proper diagnosis and advised treatment plan.

Foot Pain Diagnosis and Treatment

Depending on the location and condition of your foot pain, your podiatrist may prescribe certain treatments. These treatments can include, but are not limited to, prescription or over-the-counter medications, certain therapies, cortisone injections, or surgery. For detailed consultation please call us in Chicago, IL at (312) 337-9900; Tinley Park, IL at (708) 444-0646; Lombard, IL at (630) 495-1240.

If you are experiencing persistent foot pain, it is important to consult with your foot and ankle doctor to determine its cause and location. He or she will then prescribe the best treatment for you. While milder cases of foot pain may respond well to rest and at-home treatments, more serious cases may take time to fully recover.
