There are many different reasons why a patient may have foot pain Issaquah. Some foot pain is very easy to diagnose and treat, while other causes of foot pain may not be as obvious. However, you can be sure that our foot doctor will determine the exact cause of your foot pain, and let you know exactly what type of treatment will work best. Some causes of foot pain are corns or bunions. These conditions can be easily seen on your feet. Corns can cause a lot of pain while you are walking, and can be easily removed by our foot doctor. Our foot doctor can also let you know what can be done to help prevent corns from developing again. Heel pain is an extremely common reason why patients come in to see our foot doctor. When a patient has heel pain, they often feel pain when they get up in the morning after sleeping, or once they stand up after sitting for a long while. If you are experiencing this type of foot pain, you may have Achilles tendinitis. This is caused by an inflammation of the tendons that connect your heel to your toes. Achilles Tendinitis is often caused by excess activity, or by wearing shoes which do not properly fit or support your foot, or by being overweight. An x-ray or MRI will allow our foot doctor to determine the extent of the problem. Sometimes Achilles Tendinitis is accompanied by tears in the tendon. Treatment for this common foot problem can include a change in the shoes you wear, foot orthotics, injection therapy, and anti-inflammatory oral medications.
