Managing Sore Feet

Your feet endure daily strain, often leading to soreness and discomfort. Home remedies like foot baths with Epsom salts, stretching exercises, and massages can offer temporary relief. In addition, strengthening routines, and wearing properly fitting footwear can help alleviate symptoms. However, if foot pain persists or worsens, or if you experience symptoms such as swelling, numbness, or difficulty walking, it may be time to consult a podiatrist. Individuals with diabetes should be particularly vigilant, as any foot pain or abnormalities may indicate serious complications that require immediate medical attention. Furthermore, if you have flu-like symptoms in combination with foot pain, an open wound in the foot, or suspect a broken bone, seeking help is essential. A podiatrist can accurately diagnose and treat underlying conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, neuropathy, or stress fractures. They also can provide personalized treatment plans, including custom orthotics for optimal support and alignment. By seeking timely professional help, you can address the root cause of your foot pain and prevent future discomfort. If your sore feet worsen, it is suggested that you schedule an appointment with a podiatrist for an exam.

Foot Pain

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with one of our podiatrists from Comprehensive Foot & Ankle Center. Our doctors will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.


Foot pain is a very broad condition that could be caused by one or more ailments. The most common include:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Bone Spurs
  • Corns
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Arthritis (such as Gout, Rheumatoid, and Osteoarthritis)
  • Flat Feet
  • Injury (from stress fractures, broken toe, foot, ankle, Achilles tendon ruptures, and sprains)
  • And more


To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.


Treatment depends upon the cause of the foot pain. Whether it is resting, staying off the foot, or having surgery; podiatrists have a number of treatment options available for foot pain.
