July 12, 2018

There’s nothing worse than feeling pain shoot up your foot with every step you take – especially if you’re like us and don’t have time to stop or slow down! Our lives are busier than ever and this calls for pains like these that interfere with our everyday lives to be treated quickly and effectively. So how can forefoot pain be simply and effectively managed to not only alleviate pain now but also keep it gone in the future? Our podiatrists share their secret weapon when it comes to forefoot pain – custom foot orthotics!

Why are custom foot orthotics the PERFECT tool for treating forefoot pain?

We know, forefoot pain can be caused by MANY different conditions and injuries. However it was caused, the area now needs to heal and repair. In order to do this effectively, painful pressure (such as from constantly walking on it) must be removed from the equation. After all, would you continue to catch and throw cricket balls if you had a broken wrist and still expect it to get better efficiently? Exactly. This is where orthotics come in. Orthotics are designed specifically for your feet and your injury after a comprehensive examination and diagnosis of what has happened and is causing your pain. They’ll then work to redistribute pressure away from the injury, support the foot, cushion certain areas and whatever other functions are deemed beneficial for you by your expertly trained Podiatrist. This means that you can continue to walk, work, and continue with your day without continually putting pressure on the injured part of your forefoot and making your injury that much worse – and not to mention more painful!
