Foot Pain Q & A

Why do I have foot pain?

You have 26 bones in each of your feet, in addition to countless tendons, muscles, ligaments, and even nerves. Foot pain can stem from any one of these components (or several of them). Some of the most common causes of foot pain include:

  • Neuropathy
  • Stress fractures
  • Morton’s neuroma
  • Arthritis and gout
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Hammertoes and bunions

You can even have foot pain because of inherited traits. For instance, if you have overly flat feet or high arches, you may struggle with ongoing foot pain.

When should I see a podiatrist for foot pain?

Your feet shouldn’t hurt you, so ideally, a medical evaluation should be a top priority as soon as you start having foot pain. It’s particularly important to schedule a foot pain examination with Dr. Kalish at Atlanta Foot and Leg Clinic if you’re experiencing:

  • Swelling or tenderness
  • Visible bumps or signs of fractures
  • Oozing or drainage from a wound
  • Difficulty bearing weight on the affected foot

Dr. Kalish also wants to evaluate you if your foot pain is continuing to worsen or if it isn’t getting better after several days of trying self-treatment.

What is the treatment for foot pain?

Atlanta Foot and Leg Clinic is a state-of-the-art podiatry office that’s home to some of the most technologically advanced diagnostic equipment available. Dr. Kalish can perform an X-ray, ultrasound, or CT scan right in the office to get to the root of your foot pain. Once he diagnoses you, he can get you started on treatment which may include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Corticosteroid injections
  • Custom orthotic inserts
  • Casting, bracing, or splinting
  • Padding, strapping, and taping
  • Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT)
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)

If you do need surgery to treat your foot pain, Dr. Kalish can make almost all essential repairs using minimally invasive techniques for a quicker recovery. Dr. Kalish cares for you every step of the way, no matter which type of treatment (or treatments) is right for you, so you can get the foot pain relief you need.
