Foot pain can be a serious problem with 25 % of people at some point in their life will experience it. It is important that it is addressed and should not be ignored as generally the longer the symptoms continue the more difficult it is to successfully treat.

Foot Pain

 

Solving Foot Pain Fast & Effectively involves;

 

Diagnosis 

 

A correct diagnosis is crucial to the resolution of your pain and without a specific diagnosis, treatment tends to be general rather than specifically targeted to your problem. A comprehensive plan to resolve your pain can be best formulated when the diagnosis is clear.

 

Assessment

 

Once your injury is determined, an evaluation of your problem and the potential causes is an important next step. Understanding how your body functions and assessing your foot structure and mechanics of the foot and lower limb is vital in order to get to the root cause of your injury and provide the best-suited treatment plan.
