It’s amazing to us how many people come to our offices saying, “I thought I just had to live with this pain.” Have you ever thought that about foot or ankle pain? We’re puzzled why people run to the Dentist for a toothache or mouth concern but don’t run to a Podiatrist for foot pain. The feet are two of the most valuable assets you have.
What we’re getting at is, we do understand that society is educated on what to do about a toothache but not about a foot ache. Just living with it hoping it will go away is often the choice… but not the right choice.
There’s rarely a foot or ankle condition we can’t help. That’s why it’s interesting to us that people are often resigned to living with pain. Usually it takes until someone is pain-free before they admit to expressing their concern that they thought the pain would last forever.
The bottom line is, there is always something that can be done about foot or ankle pain. We hope you don’t ever resign yourself to living with something that can be fixed.
