Put an End to Foot Pain

 

Few things put a damper in your day like constant pain, including foot pain. You can’t walk. You can’t exercise. You may even have to depend on others to help you get out the sourdough starter (and other tasks of daily living). Dr. Kenneth R. Wilhelm always counsels our patients to act quickly when they’ve got foot pain. Just as bread dough rising on your kitchen counter can overflow and make a mess, the road to healing your feet may be longer and more difficult if you’re addressing your discomfort.

Home remedies

As soon as you notice foot pain, deal with it head-on. Here are some methods you can try at home:

Take it to the podiatrist

If your foot or ankle pain lasts for more than a few days and home remedies aren’t helping, contact Clifton Foot & Ankle Center in Centreville, Virginia. Our board-certified podiatrist spends quality time with each patient to diagnose and properly treat whatever ails your lower limbs.

You may be surprised to learn that knee, and hip pain may originate in your feet! Foot pain often forces you to change the way you walk, putting undue stress on your knees, hips, and sometimes in other parts of your foot. So fixing your feet can also correct any nagging problems you’re having in other parts of your body. For expert care and the quickest route back to good health, call us at (703) 996-3000 or make an appointment with Dr. Wilhelm online.
