Dealing with foot conditions such as sprains, fractures, wounds, and ligament damage can be difficult, especially if they are not treated properly. Many foot injuries occur while playing a sport or during work. Some problems can be treated by yourself, however, if the pain continues or worsens, it is recommended to see a podiatrist. If you live in Ronkonkoma, Holbrook, Smithtown, or Bohemia, Dr. Jeffrey S. Muroff specializes in foot care and will work with you to eliminate any foot pain or discomfort.
There are multiple ways to treat podiatric pain:
• Rest your foot
• Ice to reduce swelling
• Wear shoes with a cushioned sole
• Visit a Podiatrist
Sprains and fractures should first be treated with rest and ice. You should not put any pressure on the foot to prevent the pain or injury from getting worse. A cast or foot boot should be worn depending on the severity of the pain. It is also recommended to take over the counter pain relievers in order to reduce the pain and swelling, such as Aspirin or Motrin.
Another option for foot pain relief is wearing shoes with cushioned or gel insoles. Like pain relievers, cushioned insoles help alleviate foot pain and swelling. If you are on your feet constantly and suffering from foot pain, it is best to wear cushioned insoles to prevent any further injuries or fractures and help with the discomfort.
A podiatrist can also help treat your foot pain. They can help regain mobility and comfort in your foot. People recovering from conditions such as Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendinitis, and Heel Spurs should see a podiatrist to get the treatment they need to recover properly.
