It’s a new year, bringing with it healthy resolutions and new beginnings. But when it comes to pain, this can put a damper on your day-to-day experience. For example, if you have foot pain, it may be hard to focus on your daily activities. You might experience foot pain from a variety of causes.
Some common causes of foot pain include the following:
-Incurring a foot sprain, strain, or fracture
-Standing for long periods, like at work
-Walking or running a long distances
-Wearing ill-fitting shoes or high-heeled shoes for long periods
If you come to our Qore Physical Therapy practice for help with your foot pain, we will review your symptoms and concerns and provide you with a thorough evaluation. This will allow us to tailor a treatment plan based on your needs to help you get back on your feet with minimal pain through the right physical therapy.
We have state-of-the-art equipment and skilled staff that can see to your recovery and comfort as we help relieve your foot pain. We offer exercises that will strengthen and stabilize your feet and ankles, as well as stretches that increase your mobility and help you avoid injury or flare ups. We may also recommend special footwear that can relieve your daily symptoms.
One of the ways we can help is through ASTYM®, where our physical therapists and team work with you to regenerate your injured or inflamed soft tissues, like painful tendons and muscles that are keeping you from moving properly. ASTYM is one of the many tools available to you to help restore your ability to move and lessen the pain that often comes with soft tissue dysfunction or injury.
This soft tissue treatment will help you treat the following symptoms:
-Chronic Achilles tendinitis
-Chronic hamstring strain
-Chronic patellar tendonitis
-IT band syndrome in the knee
-Pain or loss of motion and function after surgery, trauma or overuse injury
-Patellar tendinosis (jumper’s knee)
When working with one of our experienced physical therapists for ASTYM, we will place instruments on your skin to find unhealthy tissue. Using mild to moderate pressure we will work on those soft tissue areas that need help by stimulating the dysfunctional tissue, thus assisting in providing an opportunity for muscles and tendons to heal.
It is common after surgery to find yourself having limited mobility while you are recovering from surgery. Or perhaps you are dealing with a degenerative joint disorder that can often leave you coping with chronic pain and discomfort.
Our goal is to help you get an effective treatment plan that focuses on orthopedic health that is tailored specifically to your needs so you can once again function normally and move around in your usual daily activities like you normally would. Our trained physical therapists also work to help you build both endurance and strength, find better balance and of course, lessen your pain.
Our state-of-the-art physical therapy clinic is able to help you recover from your current pain or immobility, especially in the following areas:
-Foot and ankle injuries
-Injuries to the knee, ligaments or tendons
