Foot Care

Foot:

The foot is made up of many bones, it is easy for injury to occur if they are not taken care of properly. In treating foot pain, it is important to locate the source of the pain. We will do an examination of the foot along with a foot analysis to locate and or prevent future foot problems.

Some of the most common injuries we treat and educate our patients on how to prevent include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Strains or sprains
  • Blisters
  • Loss of Toe nails

At Active Life San Diego Chiropractic and Sports Injury Prevention we will first assess your injury through a hands-on examination, present our findings and customize a Chiropractic care plan. Depending on the foot injury, we may perform a chiropractic adjustment to improve functionality, use kinesio tape to reduce inflammation, or possibly use one of our other therapies to help your foot restore its normal range of motion. Other therapies that can be used include mobilization of the area, stabilization rehab therapy exercises, and patient education to provide a comprehensive treatment approach.

If you suffer from foot pain and live in or around San Diego, please contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Shane Ott. We will gladly answer any of your questions and provide you with the best treatment options available to you.

Footwear Side Note: There are a plethora of different types of shoes on the market and many different ideas on why this one is better than that one.

But, what is really the most important thing when choosing footwear is that they fit properly and suit the needs of the activity you will be wearing them for.
