Chronic Foot Pain

Whether it's due to arthritis, an injury, or Morton's neuroma, foot pain can make simple activities like walking or standing feel unbearable. Arthritis in the feet can manifest in several forms, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or gout, and each brings its own set of challenges and symptoms.

Likewise, Morton’s neuroma, characterized by a thickening of the tissues around the nerves leading to your toes, can cause sharp, burning pain that often feels like you are standing on a pebble. Recognizing these conditions early is crucial to managing symptoms and preventing further complications.

At Foot and Ankle Specialists of Central Ohio, we understand the profound impact that foot pain can have on your life. With over 30 years of experience serving the Columbus area, our team of skilled podiatrists is dedicated to providing comprehensive care for a wide range of foot-related issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

What causes arthritis in the feet?

Arthritis in the feet can be caused by various factors, including obesity, aging, and genetics. It can also be a result of wear and tear on the joints, leading to inflammation and pain. Injury or repetitive stress on the feet can further aggravate these symptoms. Early detection and proper treatment can help manage symptoms and prevent further damage.

What are the symptoms of Morton's neuroma?

Morton's neuroma typically presents with pain and discomfort in the ball of the foot, often feeling like you are standing on a pebble. You might also experience tingling, burning, or numbness in the toes. The pain can worsen with activity or when wearing tight or narrow shoes. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial to manage the symptoms effectively and prevent the condition from advancing to stages that might require more invasive treatment.

How can custom orthotics help with foot pain?

Custom orthotics can provide personalized support and cushioning tailored to your specific foot structure and needs.
