Foot Pain is Real: Benefits of Visiting a Chiropodist

As silly as it sounds, we don’t tend to think about our feet and their health simply because they are the farthest body part from our eyes. As the saying goes, “Out of sight, out of mind”. However, foot pain, whether you are experiencing pain at the nails, skin, heel, or ball of your foot, should not be ignored. Your foot health is an integral determinant of the quality of your life. Just think about how many steps you take in a day and how much your life would change if your feet were compromised. Pain is a good indicator that something is not normal and should be addressed as soon as possible to prevent further complications down the road.

A Registered Chiropodist is a primary health care professional who specializes in the assessment, management, and prevention of dysfunctions, disorders, and diseases of the foot. Here are a few benefits of visiting a chiropodist for a foot check.

Checking for nail abnormalities

Your toenails are much more susceptible to changes and infections than your fingernails, mainly due to their vulnerability to damage or trauma. Toenails can become thickened, discoloured, curved, and painful. If you start noticing these changes, book an appointment with your local foot specialist to help safely manage these changes and determine the cause, ruling out fungus or an ingrown toenail.

Checking for skin disorders

For the most part, your feet spend a lot of time in a closed space either in a pair of shoes or a pair of socks. If you exercise regularly or if your feet are naturally sweaty, this introduces another factor: moisture. All these things increase the chance of getting Athlete’s foot or a plantar wart. Hard callus and deep corns can also cause pain and can easily be treated.

Correcting foot function

If you have foot pain, the chances are, the underlying cause is due to how your foot moves through your gait. With time, these abnormal movements can cause strain and sometimes even permanent damages in the soft tissues and joints. Addressing the issue sooner than later through proper footwear advice, stretches, taping, and/or custom foot orthotics, will work out to your benefit.

A foot specialist knows the ins and outs of foot health and is able to treat a very wide spectrum of foot problems with various treatment options. Get your feet on the path of good health today. Call Feet First Clinic to book an appointment with one of our Registered Chiropodists.
