Evaluating Chronic Foot Pain

Chronic foot pain can result from many conditions, including plantar fasciitis, arthritis, diabetes-related neuropathy, and repetitive stress injuries. These conditions can lead to ongoing discomfort, affecting mobility and quality of life. Effective diagnosis often begins with a comprehensive evaluation by a podiatrist, who will review the patient’s medical history and conduct a physical examination. Podiatrists may utilize imaging tests like X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans to view the internal structure of the foot and identify any underlying issues. These tests help the doctor confirm or eliminate certain conditions from the diagnosis by giving a detailed picture of what is happening in the foot. Gait analysis might also be performed to assess how the individual stands and walks, pinpointing abnormal movements that could contribute to the pain. Getting the right diagnosis is important so the podiatrist can create a customized treatment strategy to address the chronic pain. If you are suffering from chronic foot pain, it is suggested that you make an appointment with a podiatrist today.
