Lombard Foot Specialist

Foot Pain Doctor Lombard

Here at AFP Podiatry, our Lombard foot specialist and the rest of our staff are here to treat any problem areas or conditions of the foot that might be inhibiting you from moving easily or from living comfortably. One common condition that our Lombard foot specialist diagnoses and treats in the patients here at AFP Podiatry is plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It is a condition that is characterized by the inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is a thick band of tissue that is located across the bottom of your foot and is responsible for connecting your heel bone to your toes.

There are some symptoms typically associated with plantar fasciitis that you can look out for in your own life. One telltale symptom is if you experience a stabbing sort of pain around your heel, especially when you are taking your first steps after you wake up. Once you have walked around a bit, the pain usually lessens some. The pain may come back if you have been sitting in one spot for an extended period of time and then get up. There are a few risk factors associated with plantar fasciitis, which includes running regularly, being overweight, and wearing shoes that do not provide proper support for the foot. If you think you might have this disorder, you should schedule an appointment with our Lombard foot specialist as soon as possible.

During your visit to AFP Podiatry, our Lombard foot specialist will perform a thorough physical examination and discuss your medical history with you, and at that point should be able to confirm a diagnosis. Many patients use over-the-counter pain relievers like Advil or Aleve in order to reduce the pain. Other treatment methods include physical therapy, orthotics, steroids, surgery and more. To learn more about the various services provided by our Lombard foot specialist, we encourage you to visit the main AFP Podiatry website for additional information. Feel free to contact our staff directly with any questions. Our Lombard foot specialist and the rest of our staff are looking forward to working with you.
