How Chiropractic Can Help Relieve Foot Pain
By Stepy Kamei
Foot pain is no fun to deal with, especially when it's ongoing, or you can't figure out the cause for it. When your feet aren't on top of their game health-wise, it can really mess with your sense of balance literally, as much as it affects your overall well-being. If you're dealing with foot pain with no clear cause, you should read on to learn more about what could be causing your foot pain -- and how a chiropractor may be able to help you.
Check For These Symptoms of Foot Pain
If you've recently injured or sprained your foot, you probably know what's causing your discomfort. If you're in pain without a clear cause though, check to see if you're experiencing the following symptoms as well:
- Restricted mobility - Is it harder to move your feet than it used to be?
- Numbness and tingling sensations - Are you experiencing that "pins and needles" feeling whether you've been active or sedentary?
- Weakness or heaviness - Does your foot feel heavier than normal?
If you're experiencing at least one of these symptoms, you may be surprised to learn that the real cause of your discomfort may be an issue in your spinal column.
Chiropractic for Better Foot Health
Many people don't realize how the spinal column can impact many other aspects of the body. If the spinal column is in good health, the whole body has a better chance of functioning well. However, an issue in the spinal column can mean bad news for other areas as well.
Fortunately, chiropractic can help. Chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic understand how the spinal column needs to be in its proper alignment in order to allow the rest of the body to function properly as well. When the spine is out of alignment, many health issues can be brought about -- including pain and numbness in one or both feet. This may be because a spinal misalignment could cause a person to walk with an unbalanced gait, therefore putting added pressure on one or both of their feet.
During a session, a chiropractor will use manual manipulation techniques, performed by hand, in order to gently coax the spine into the right alignment. Once this happens, a patient may begin experiencing relief from aches and pains right away. You may even have an improved posture and stance, therefore relieving pressure off of your feet.
