Are you dealing with foot and leg pain that just won’t go away, or even gets worse throughout the day? The human body has an intricate system of bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons that support us in our legs and feet, and all this tension in one area often leads to chronic pain. KureSmart Pain Management is a multidisciplinary pain management practice with several different ways to help treat pain so you can go back to a pain-free life.
Foot and Leg Pain Causes
Our legs and feet have to carry us throughout the day, so pain in these areas can be particularly problematic. Often the cause of the pain is inflamed tendons, which hold muscles to bones, or even in ligaments, which hold bones together.
Several factors can be at play when it comes down to identifying the cause of inflammation:
- Muscle or joint injury
- Overuse of the muscle group
- Misalignment of feet and/or hips
- Poor nutrition
Non-Surgical Solutions for Leg and Foot Pain
KureSmart Pain Management believes in using a holistic approach to diagnose, treat, and prevent chronic pain. We also believe in non-invasive treatments for leg and foot pain such as custom foot orthotics.
Foot, ankle, knee, hip, and back problems may be alleviated by improving posture and the alignment of your feet. Custom foot orthotics allow your feet to function the way your structure dictates rather than adapting to shoes and walking terrain. In other words, they customize the ground you walk on, allowing you to stand, walk, run, and jump in the most efficient way while minimizing stress and pain in other parts of the body.
Another option for alleviating foot and leg pain is through physical therapy with a trained professional. Strengthening the lower back, correcting posture, and improving balance and gait will often help chronic leg and foot pain.
KureSmart Pain Management’s physical therapy team provides a thorough lower extremity and foot bio-mechanical assessment to evaluate your specific needs and recommend a customized treatment plan. Whether we can custom-build foot orthotics or help you with physical therapy, we are here to help you live a stronger, pain-free life.
