Foot Pain Q & A

What causes foot pain?

Your feet are made of an intricate network of bones, joints, muscles, nerves, and ligaments that work in concert to bear your weight and help you stand, walk, jump, skip, and tiptoe.

Foot pain is a common complaint. The reason for foot pain could be due to:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Bunions
  • Bursitis
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Hammertoes
  • Heel spurs
  • Club foot
  • Tarsal coalition
  • Ingrown toenail
  • Flat foot
  • Gout
  • Arthritis
  • Stress fractures
  • Turf toe
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome

Dr. Tehrani is diligent about making a quick and accurate diagnosis to get you out of pain and discomfort and back to your regular activities as quickly as possible. With years of experience, he provides a physical examination, evaluates your health history and lifestyle, and may use medical imaging to determine the exact cause of your foot pain.

How is foot pain treated?

Treatment depends on what is causing the foot pain. Dr. Tehrani highly customizes your treatment plan to address the specifics of your injury, your body specifications, and your lifestyle.

Options include:

  • Custom orthotics
  • Physical therapy
  • Non-invasive injections
  • Ultrasound therapy
  • Juvederm® injections

As a premier podiatric facility, King's Point Foot and Ankle Specialists uses cutting-edge treatments for foot pain, like Juvederm, a star of the skincare world.

What is Juvederm?

Juvederm is an FDA-approved dermal hyaluronic acid filler that boosts your skin's elasticity and decreases severe wrinkles. Though it’s most often associated with skincare, Juvederm is gaining traction as an effective treatment for a variety of foot problems.

Hyaluronic acid is naturally created in your body but depletes with time and age. Juvederm reinstalls hyaluronic acid in areas where more support is needed.

In the foot care setting, Juvederm draws water to an area to create a protective cushion around the balls of your feet to offset pressure from sports, high heels, running, hiking, and normal walking, which averages 10,000 steps per person per day. It’s an excellent treatment for Metatarsalgia sufferers.

Juvederm is safe to use and is minimally invasive. Dr. Tehrani uses a thin needle to make a small injection in your foot. It feels like a quick pinch, but it’s not painful.

To put a stop to foot pain, rely on Dr. Tehrani and King's Point Foot and Ankle Specialists. Call the office to make an appointment, ask about private house calls, or book your appointment online.
