Foot pain treatment in Singapore that will get to the root of the problem for maximum relief

Chiropractic foot pain treatment is more beneficial than other natural remedies because it gets to the root of the problem.

The foot is a complex structure with 33 joints, 26 bones and 100 ligaments, tendons, and muscles.

Foot pain can be caused by misalignment of bones leading to muscle and other soft tissue damage. In these instances, our chiropractic clinic can pinpoint the underlying cause of your foot problem and use chiropractic adjustments to provide long-lasting pain relief in any part of your foot.

Besides chiropractic, natural remedies for foot pain relief include:

  • Rest
  • Ice
  • Elevation to reduce swelling.
  • Exercises to correct posture.

However, home remedies like these, even when combined with anti-inflammatory drugs, won’t address the real issue like chiropractic can.

Pain in the bottom of the foot

A sharp pain in the sole of the foot is frequently due to plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the plantar fascia ligament caused by strain. The condition can be caused by overuse or badly-fitting shoes.

Symptoms of plantar fasciitis include:

  • Stiffness of the foot, particularly on waking.
  • Difficulty walking.
  • Swelling or tenderness.

Without treatment, plantar fasciitis can lead to other complications – including tearing of tendons – that delay the healing process.

Chiropractic is an effective treatment for plantar fasciitis and the pain it causes, and our experienced chiropractor uses very precise techniques entailing chiropractic adjustments to reduce stress in the plantar fascia and encourage healing. We also provide heel pain treatment for plantar fasciitis.

Pain in the top of the foot

Pain in the top of the foot can be mild to severe, depending on the cause. Your foot may hurt when walking or even standing still.

The most common causes of pain in the top of the foot is overuse through activities such as running.

Symptoms of problems in the top of the foot include:

  • Numbness or a prickling sensation that can radiate into the legs.
  • Weakness of the foot.

If left untreated, problems in the top of the foot can cause extensor tendonitis – inflammation of the extensor tendons used for flexing the foot. This issue can be extremely painful.

Our chiropractor clinic can resolve the problem of top of the foot pain with gentle, specific chiropractic adjustments that’ll also improve the alignment of the bones in your foot.

Pain in the side of the foot

Lateral foot pain, which occurs on the outer edges of the feet, can make it difficult to walk, run or even stand.

There’re various causes of pain in the side of the foot, including a hairline stress fracture resulting from overuse or repetitive movements.

A low-risk hairline fracture will usually heal on its own with rest, so our chiropractor won’t manipulate the bone. He can, however, ease the discomfort and fix the problems that may have contributed to the fracture in the first place.

Lateral foot pain may also be due to cuboid syndrome if you damage the ligaments or joints around the cuboid bone.

If your lateral foot pain is caused by a bunion, we can use chiropractic adjustment techniques to provide bunion pain relief.

Pain in the back of the foot

Pain in the back of the foot is typically caused by Achilles tendonitis, an inflammation of the Achilles tendon – the strongest connective tissue in the body – which connects muscles in the calf to the heel.

This condition can be caused by:

  • Trauma
  • Infection
  • Arthritis

Symptoms of Achilles tendonitis include:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • A burning sensation above the heel.

Without treatment, scar tissue may build up and cause bumps along the tendon or a tendon rupture, requiring more intensive treatment.

Our chiropractor treats Achilles tendonitis by enhancing the weight distribution of the body and improving movement patterns of the foot, ankle, and leg.

Ankle pain

Ankle pain can be a result of inflammation of tendons through injury, like a sprain, or a medical condition, such as arthritis.

Symptoms of ankle problems include:

  • Difficulty in walking or bearing weight.
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling

A sprained ankle left untreated can leave the ligaments torn or stretched and lead to arthritis. Arthritis in the ankle can grow worse without treatment, becoming so painful that you can’t walk even short distances.

The good news is patients with ankle issues respond well to our chiropractic treatment, which includes manipulation of the foot to improve mobility of the joint.

Chiropractic may be just what you need to alleviate it.

Chiropractic foot pain relief

In providing foot pain relief, our chiropractor will also improve the function of your foot by restoring flexibility of the muscles, particularly beneficial in protecting the plantar fascia.

We can utilise different chiropractic techniques, instruments, and exercises to resolve the root cause of your foot pain to give you the best chance of a lasting recovery. Our foot pain treatments include:

Active release therapy

Active release therapy can precisely locate the exact spots causing your foot pain by using massage to shorten muscles and then hand pressure to stretch them. Once the muscles are lengthened, our chiropractic practitioner can assess whether the area is healthy or contains scar tissue. More tension can then be applied to areas of scarring, which is especially effective in removing an accumulation of scar tissue caused by plantar fasciitis.

Shockwave therapy

Shockwave therapy stimulates the body’s natural healing ability to repair damaged muscles and tendons. We use a machine to transmit waves of pressure – not electrical pulses – through the affected area to improve blood circulation and promote growth of blood vessels. Plantar fasciitis treatment with shockwave therapy is reported to have a success rate of up to 90%.
