Foot Pain Treatment

Chronic foot pain is relatively common and almost expected, as the feet bear tons of force every day just from the process of walking. Often, chronic foot pain begins from a collapse of the medial arch. This occurs because the spring ligaments and plantar fascia can no longer support the arch. Treatments, such as arch supports, may provide temporary benefit but unless the ligament strength is restored, most patients find that they circle through various orthotics, cortisone injections, pain pills and dozens of new shoes trying to cushion the foot.

However, S.T.A.R. Therapy treatment works to strengthen the arch to provide more permanent results.

Another common long-term issue that arises from soft tissue damage is heel spurs. Remember, bone spurs are the long-term reaction to abnormal stress being placed on a bone. Heel spurs are due to the soft tissue abnormalities of the plantar fascia.

S.T.A.R. Therapy works to strengthen the plantar fascia to eliminate chronic heel pain. There is generally not a need for heel spurs to be surgically removed after the supportive ligaments and plantar fascia have been repaired.
