Feet In St. Charles IL

They take a lot of abuse, they don't talk back and they are the foundation upon which we stand.
Question: What are your feet?

We take them for granted. We abuse them with ill-fitting, but handsome or cute (gender-dependent), containers we call shoes. And then one day the sleeping dragon awakes and we can barely walk.

Your feet are obviously essential to get you around. They are the foundation for everything that happens as we stand and walk. They take a licking and keep on ticking. Like everything else on earth they eventually wear out. Then we all pretend we didn't do anything wrong, and wonder why the pain just showed up. They are actually worn out for a long time before we have pain and difficulty walking.

Your feet are essential to your balance. They are also the shock absorber and stable foundation for your knees, hips, and back. Insidious changes in your feet alter how you exercise, walk and stand. They don't complain, but those changes stress out your other parts and can also cause pain in the joints above them.

Any of you who are patients know that as I treat your knees, hips, and back, I also adjust your feet to make them work like the shock absorbers they were meant to be. I also talk about the shoes you wear and the aging of your feet which affect everything north or your ankles.

There are three natural arches in your foot. They work like shock absorbers to reduce the impact which is walking and exercise. Did you ever wonder why your foot has gotten longer and wider since high school? If you are over 30, they have and maybe you haven't noticed yet. The ligaments that string up the arches overstretch with time, gravity and use. Foot and ankle injuries, and pregnancy, speed this process. With the loss of those shock absorbers, everything starts to wear out faster.

Some of the more common foot problems, and problems caused from your worn out feet, that we treat and make feel better are:

  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Ankle sprains
  • Neuromas, Morton's neuroma
  • Shin splints
  • Heel spurs
  • Knee pain (runners knee, patella femoral syndrome, Baker's cyst, meniscus, pain around the knee cap, pain on the inside of the knee)
  • Back pain
  • SI or sacroiliac pain

Some of the outstanding treatments we have for your feet are Graston Technique, Fascial Manipulation, Kinesiotape, and Orthotics. You can Google those or just trust us to fix you up and keep you going pain-free.

Unfortunately, everything wears out eventually. Our mission is to keep you upright and functional, keep you exercising, keep you walking, keep you enjoying life and aging gracefully. We are always just a phone call away and here to help.
