There are many causes of foot pain that are caused by mechanical impairments that we seen at PTN in the Strip District in Pittsburgh,PA. Three of these common diagnoses can present with the same pain and in the same regions of the foot. With all three of these syndromes the cause of your pain can be difficult to detect and here’s why:
Often the source of the problem is related to abnormal biomechanics at a site other than where the pain lies. A problem with pain in a particular portion of the foot can be caused by improper length/tension of muscle groups at the low back, pelvis, hip, and knee, bony alignment problems and the overall mobility of joints that interact together.
Many times, diagnoses are made without consideration of the biomechanics that may be the “true source” of the problem or are based on the location of a persons’ pain instead of how they abnormally move as a whole person.
So when we take a look at plantar fasciitis, posterior tibialis syndrome, and fat pad syndrome attention to the biomechanics of the complete human body in motion has to be considered as well as the patient’s medical history of course in order to delineate the correct problem and to treat it appropriately.
If you would like to eliminate your foot and ankle pain and would like to talk about how this is possible without taking medications, receiving shots, or having surgery then
We have found that most people may have been told that there is nothing that can be done to cure their particular foot or ankle problem in a natural way and often this is not the case. It doesn’t hurt to talk about your problem and honestly let you know if there is something that can be done or not. This is what we do everyday! A free conversation is helpful way for anyone to know if there might be help for their condition.
These are the 3 Common Myths to ending foot and ankle problems:
- I have been told that nothing will work! Sometimes this is true but most often this is false.
- I have been given exercises in the past and these have not worked. Often exercises will not work alone and have to implemented with other natural treatments in a specifically combined and sequential approach.
- I can not afford to take care of my foot/ankle pain. Treatment of foot and ankle disorders by natural means does not have to be expensive and is way less expensive then ongoing shots or surgery. Also, the cost of continued foot problems will escalate if not corrected.
