Experienced foot doctors and surgeons know that the foot is one of the most complex parts of the skeletal system, with 26 bones, 33 joints, and more than 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments working in tandem to support the body’s weight and propel you through your daily routine.
Foot pain and injuries can have a profound impact on quality of life, which makes finding the best foot doctor imperative. As many as 75 percent of Americans will experience foot health problems at one time or another, yet some go far too long with pain that that restricts day-to-day activities like work, exercise, and even walking.
Foot doctors know that foot pain can come from many sources, including underlying medical conditions, overuse, anatomical deformities, occupational or sports injuries, or something as simple as having a misstep wearing high heels.
Conditions that seem simply esthetic can also indicate an underlying anatomic condition. Bunions, for example, are a painful bony bump on the inside of your foot at the base of your big toe that can be caused by environmental factors such as tight shoes or by conditions like arthritis. Hammertoe, which presents as an abnormal bend in the middle toe joint, is another foot condition that may be tied to underlying conditions such as arthritis and diabetes.
Many foot injuries and conditions can be treated without surgery, and your foot doctor will help you understand and pursue non-surgical options before recommending surgery. This may include changing your footwear or adding padding to existing shoes, rest, ice, or anti-inflammatory pain relief.
When experiencing any kind of foot pain, it’s essential to see a qualified foot doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.
