Chronic or severe foot pain can destroy your quality of life and make it difficult to perform daily tasks—even walking. At Coast Spine and Sports Medicine, we offer comprehensive treatment options to get to the underlying cause of your pain. We welcome men and women in Los Angeles and Orange County, CA.
What Is Foot Pain?
The foot is made up of an intricate network of tendons, ligaments, bones, and muscles. Together, this network is strong enough to work together to bear the weight of the human body. Of course, bearing all of this weight and strain also makes the feet prone to injury and pain.
Any part of the foot, including the toes, Achilles tendon, arches, and soles, can be affected by foot pain. While mild foot pain can often be easily resolved with home treatments, more severe cases can require in-depth analysis and comprehensive care.
How Much Does Foot Pain Treatment Cost in Los Angeles, CA?
The cost to treat foot pain depends on many factors, especially the underlying cause of your pain. During your first appointment at Coast Spine and Sports Medicine, we will work with you to create a tailored treatment plan and review your cost. We gladly accept many forms of insurance and financing through CareCredit® for your convenience.
What Causes Foot Pain?
Foot pain can be caused by many factors including a foot injury or sports-related injury; an underlying condition that causes inflammation of the ligaments, tendons, or bones; or overuse. Two of the most common causes of chronic foot pain are arthritis and diabetes, the latter of which can cause a type of nerve pain called diabetic neuropathy.
Foot pain can also be the result of wearing unsupportive, poorly fitted, or incorrect shoes or conditions such as:
- Achilles Tendonitis
- Achilles Tendon Rupture
- Bone Spurs
- Joint Inflammation
- Peripheral Neuropathy
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Raynaud’s Disease
- Stress Fractures
What Foot Pain Treatments Do You Offer?
At Coast Spine and Sports Medicine, we believe in beginning with the least invasive treatment methods first to relieve your pain. In addition to physical therapy, we offer a variety of treatment options such as:
- Cortisone Injections
- Cortisone shots are designed to relieve inflammation and pain in joints, including the small joints of the feet that are responsible for pain.
- PRP Injections
- PRP therapy concentrates the healing factors in your blood and injects it at the site of an injury in your foot to help tissue heal and regenerate. PRP injections can be used to treat a variety of foot and ankle conditions like arthritis, tendonitis, fasciosis, and ankle ligament injuries.
- Laser Treatments
- Therapeutic laser therapy for pain can be used to treat chronic heel pain from plantar fasciitis, which is the result of tiny tears and inflammation of the ligaments and tendons of the foot.
Surgery is only recommended when your pain isn’t relieved by these treatment options.
