Foot Pain in McAllen & Weslaco, TX
Foot pain is probably one of the most common reasons people come to Foot Center McAllen/Weslaco PLLC. While minor bouts of fleeting foot pain can often be treated with simple home remedies, there are moments when you’ll want to turn to a foot care professional for treatment. Our podiatrists, Dr. Quach and Dr. Enyew can help treat, diagnose, and prevent foot pain.
First and foremost, you should never ignore any kind of pain, particularly pain that impacts your feet and ankles. After all, pain that keeps you from performing at your best or enjoying everyday activities should be addressed by a qualified podiatrist. Of course, foot pain is rather generic and countless issues could be going on, which is another reason to turn to us for care. By finding out what’s really going on, we can also map out a treatment plan that caters to you and the exact issues you’re dealing with.
When you come into Foot Center McAllen/Weslaco PLLC for a consultation, we will examine your feet, ask you questions about your pain (including location, when it started, and the severity), and perform a physical exam and imaging tests to rule out certain conditions while also making a definitive diagnosis.
There are many causes of foot and ankle pain including:
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- Bone spurs
- Bunions and hammertoes
- Sprains and strains
Any kind of new or worsening pain should be checked out by a podiatrist, especially if your pain is the result of an injury or accident. By seeing a doctor right away we can provide you with the proper treatment you need to heal properly. Putting off treatment, however, can lead to weakness, limited range of motion, chronic pain and inflammation, and long-term instability. This is why it’s important to turn to our podiatrists if you are dealing with pain that doesn’t go away within a couple of days of home care, or pain that gets worse or is severe.
