Experienced Care for Your Foot Health
Overuse or injury can push your feet to their breaking point. Most patients with foot pain first opt for more conservative options to address their problem. However, certain cases may require a cast, walking boot, or surgery to achieve long-lasting pain relief. If you are suffering from pain or an injury that hasn’t healed with at-home treatment options, our podiatrist offers expert treatment for foot pain in Wauwatosa, WI, to restore your foot's function.
Causes of Foot Pain
Some types of foot pain can be corrected with lifestyle changes, changes in footwear, or custom orthotics. Other conservative methods include rest, ice, compression, and physical therapy. However, if these methods don’t work, you may need surgery to correct the issue. Causes of foot pain may include:
- Arthritis - Arthritis in the small joints in the front of your foot, known as metatarsophalangeal joints, leads to inflammation and can dislocate the joint, causing pain.
- Bunions – This is a bony bump that forms at the base of the big toe as a result of "hallux valgus." Hallux valgus causes deformity in the big toe joint as it bends towards the other toes. This is also the cause of hammertoes, which is when the smaller toes bend upwards and become stuck in a claw-like position.
- Plantar fasciitis – Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the muscle that connects the heel to the ball of the foot. This condition presents with pain in the arch of the foot upon waking and is usually relieved with foot exercises, pain medication, and rest. However, in some cases, surgery may be necessary.
