Chronic Foot and Ankle Pain

For many of us, using our feet and ankles is a lot like breathing; you don’t think about it until something goes wrong. For those who have chronic pain in their foot and ankles, that pain is often the only thing on their mind. The good news is that you don’t have to suffer anymore. For many common chronic foot and ankle pains, there are solutions; many of them found here at Sole Mate’s. 

When it comes to heel pain, it could be one of a few things. What we see most often is plantar fasciitis, which is an inflammation or irritation of a band of tissue that connects the heel to the toes. While foot and heel stretches can help with the pain felt from plantar fasciitis, custom-made insoles for your shoes will give you proper support and help alleviate that pain. 

Moving toward the front, pain in the ball of your foot called metatarsalgia can be caused by high-impact activities or exercise, and from improper footwear. It’s a cramping burning pain below and between the metatarsal bones of your foot where they join the toe bones. For mild cases, rest and ice will often relieve symptoms. In more severe cases, changing your footwear would be your next step. Getting fitted for a set of custom orthotics for your shoes can bring relief to metatarsalgia pain. 

Foot pain caused by diabetes can also be helped with solutions from Sole Mate’s. Diabetes can cause limited blood circulation to your legs and feet, causing pain and discomfort. That limited blood flow can also cause foot injuries to be worse than normal, and take longer to heal. Properly fitting compression socks can help by improving the circulation in your legs and feet. Come see us any time to be measured for compression socks!
