Chiropractic Treatment for Foot Pain
No matter how strong the rest of your body may be a painful foot can make you feel helpless. Feet must bear considerable weight, whether you're simply standing in place, walking, running, or jumping as part of your regular routine. Fortunately, you can obtain relief foot pain without resorting to surgery. Our team at MCR Chiropractic in can administer natural, non-invasive treatments to help you get that nagging pain under control.
Foot Pain and Its Causes
The foot contains many bones and joints, with a complex assembly of soft tissues that enable it to adapt to shifts in weight distribution as you move. Obesity, the wrong kind of footwear, alignment problems, and overuse of the feet can cause chronic strain conditions such as plantar fasciitis. The same spinal misalignment that can strain the knees can also strain the feet by throwing your kinetic chain off-kilter. At the same time, imbalances in your feet can throw off the alignment of your knees, hips, and lower back.
Chiropractic Care Can Restore Lower-Body Balance
Chiropractic adjustments can correct many of the imbalances that produce chronic foot pain. Abnormal foot arches may require customized orthotics to even out the weight distribution on the feet. If the pain actually stems from a spinal imbalance, you may need chiropractic adjustments to your lower back. Our team may also recommend exercises and other care to strengthen your postural support and keep your joints limber.
