For mobility and function, we depend on all of our body parts to work together but it is the feet that do most of the work. Unfortunately, because our feet get overworked with age and wear and tear, you may start to have problems. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent and treat these issues so you can get back on your feet.
A foot clinic is a health clinic that has specialists that deal with various foot issues. Your family doctor will refer you to one if you express issues and a specialist at the clinic will determine the issue and a treatment plan for you. As feet have various parts, including the heel and ankle, your treatment will depend on which part of the foot is affected and how severe the issue is. You may need something as simple as deep tissue massage or salve or you may need to take medication or have a more invasive procedure, such as surgery, done.
Whatever the issue, it’s important to have any pain in your feet diagnosed earlier than later to avoid complications and reduce the amount of time you are off your feet.
