Visit a Podiatrist for Persistent Foot Pain

Foot problems can cause symptoms such as pain, swelling, and limping. Most of the time, these issues improve on their own within approximately six weeks. But there are situations when help should be sought. These include having an injury such as a bad fall or a direct blow to the foot, or if your foot changes shape after an injury. Additionally, if you have an open wound, or if your foot becomes excessively cold and changes color are reasons that may warrant immediate medical attention. Foot problems can also be caused by normal age-related changes or flare ups of existing conditions. As you get older, these issues may come and go without an apparent reason. Unfortunately, sometimes foot pain can affect areas of the body including the toes, ankle, calf, knee, and possibly the back. If you have persistent foot or ankle pain, it is suggested that you schedule an appointment with a podiatrist for a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Foot pain is a very broad condition that could be caused by one or more ailments. The most common include:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Bone Spurs
  • Corns
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Arthritis (such as Gout, Rheumatoid, and Osteoarthritis)
  • Flat Feet
  • Injury (from stress fractures, broken toe, foot, ankle, Achilles tendon ruptures, and sprains)
  • And more


To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.


Treatment depends upon the cause of the foot pain. Whether it is resting, staying off the foot, or having surgery; podiatrists have a number of treatment options available for foot pain.
