Why do I have Foot Pain?
Foot pain--Pain in the feet can come from any number of sources both related to our bodies and the forces that act on them. The foot is a complex network of bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles, and is truly the foundation for the kinetic chain that is our body. Because our feet affect every other part of our musculoskeletal system, it is crucial that they have proper support as we ambulate the earth's surface, and, of course, spend far more time on the unforgiving surface of concrete than previous generations ever did. At Union County Chiropractic Clinic, located in Maynardville, we are experienced in treating foot pain from youth all the way through the golden years, and have developed a successful track record with hard-to-treat cases. A large part of the formula for chronic foot pain is addressing the foundational support problems inherent with weak arches. Dr. Johnson is an expert in determining the support that your feet need, and is located conveniently in Maynardville, to serve all of Union County.
Union County Chiropractic Treatment for Foot Pain
Foot pain can come from the joints of the ankle, foot or toes, or the muscles, ligaments and tendons that attach to those bones and cause movement and support the plantar vault. The plantar vault is actually made up of three arches that support the foot in a triangular pattern of weight-bearing from the hindfoot to the forefoot, and all three arches must be supported properly for the foot to balanced as it bears weight against gravity. At Union County Chiropractic, we have a 3D digital foot scanner that produces a weight-bearing pattern of your feet on a computer screen in just a few minutes, allowing us to assess instantly how well your arches support your feet. We use this information to have custom orthotic supports made to go in your shoes, to support your feet in a textbook normal position, and these orthotics are backed by an unconditional, one year money-back guarantee. As well, a custom home rehabilitative exercise program is often useful to strengthen the supportive tissues of the foot that take so much stress in our activities of daily life.
Foot Pain is Different, Body to Body
Because each body is different, and the causes of foot pain are so numerous, it is essentially important to understand the root cause of the pain before undergoing treatment or having orthotic insoles made for your shoes. Sometimes X-rays are necessary to determine the extent of damage or pathology in the foot, but rest assured that no treatment plan is undertaken without clear and careful analysis of your problem, and a clear plan outlined for your case. If referral to another health care provider is warranted, Dr. Johnson works closely with specialists in the greater Knoxville area to make sure that you get the help you need, even it isn't in our office
