Causes of Foot Pain
Foot pain is one of the most common symptoms patients come into our office complaining of. How can we be suprised given the nature of our mobility. We stand all day, we walk miles and miles of our poor feet (this is a good thing!), we bounce, we skip and we skiddatle and often we pay for it. Foot pain is most often due to repetitive strain on the muscles, ligaments, bones and tendons of the feet. We have arches to our feet whose purpose is to "shock-absorb". Commonly fallen or pronated arches will reduce the mechanical efficiency of each step that we take. The result is accumulation of stress, strain & tension. Eventually we feel foot pain.
Dr. Michael Horowitz helps his patients by supporting the mechanics of their feet by providing custom orthotic inserts. By changing the alignment and enhancing the biomechanics of the feet, the patient obversved improved foot functioning and the results are often less foot pain!
