Find out what might be causing your foot pain so you know how to best treat your symptoms.
From foot pain resulting from a sports injury to heel pain that seems to appear almost overnight, there are many reasons why you might be experiencing this symptom. The location of your pain, as well as what you did leading up to the pain can provide our Denver podiatrists Dr. Florin Costache and Dr. Lorry Melnick with the information they need to figure out what’s going on.
Here are some of the most common causes of foot pain;
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- Bone spurs
- Sprains and strains
- Broken toe
- Broken foot or ankle
- Ingrown toenail
As you can see, there are so many different conditions or problems that can lead to foot pain and it’s near impossible to pinpoint what’s going on unless you visit one of our Denver foot doctors for an evaluation. Of course, we understand that most people lead busy lives and want to avoid visiting the doctor unless it’s necessary. So, when should you visit a podiatrist?
You should seek immediate medical attention if you are experiencing severe pain, there is an open wound, you are experiencing signs of an infection, you have diabetes, you also have a fever or you can’t walk or put weight on the foot.
While not a medical emergency, it is still important to have your foot evaluated if you are noticing pain and swelling that doesn’t improve after a few days, if your symptoms get worse even with at-home care or if you notice numbness or tingling in the feet.
If you are dealing with persistent, severe or sudden foot pain in Denver, then it’s a good idea to call the experts at Cherry Creek Foot Clinic to find out what’s going on. We can create a treatment plan to get you back on your feet.
