Correctly diagnosing and adjusting the feet can relieve foot pain but will often improve knee, hip, and lower back pain.

Did you know that chiropractic can help with pain in your feet? By adjusting the feet, not only can you relieve foot pain, but you will often improve knee, hip, and lower back pain as well. There are twenty- seven bones in each foot, and the bones in the feet make up over 25% of the entire skeletal bones in the body. The bones in the feet are the skeleton's foundation and dictate how the frame above is supported and functions. More times than not, pain in the feet and ankles is due to soft tissue injuries, cumulative trauma, arthritis, nerve compression and tension, and inflammation due to poor foot mechanics, mobility and function, and alignment of the tarsal bones in the feet. Foot conditions can also cause that nagging lower back pain that never seems to get better with treatments. Not all chiropractors treat extremities, so you must seek a specialty chiropractor that can properly diagnose the cause of your pain and effectively provide experienced treatment. Depending on your specific condition, a tailored clinical plan will be implemented to address the underlying cause of the pain in your feet.
