Are you going through discomfort or agony because of heel pain? Or do you have arch pain, which flares across the bottom of the foot, between the heel and the ball? At Associated Foot Care Clinic, Inc. patients can have arch pain and heel pain treated by Dr. J. Leonard Knudson. He will get to the bottom of what is causing your discomfort and create a treatment plan that will relieve you from your pain.
Heel and Arch Pain Causes
Most arch pain is due to strain or inflammation of a long ligament on the bottom of the foot. This mostly develops due to overuse, unsupportive shoes, weight gain or injury. This means that determining the root cause of the arch pain including the aforementioned factors will lead to holistic treatments that not only aim at reducing the discomfort, but the reason behind them. This can range from lifestyle modifications, supportive shoes, or curing the specific injury behind the arch pain. If you experience arch pain, schedule an appointment with Dr. J. Leonard Knudson - a Culver City Foot Doctor for treatment to prevent the condition from becoming worse.
The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis, a condition that is also known as heel spur syndrome. It is a chronic overuse type of injury that results in the inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes.
