Causes of Foot Pain
Everyday Foot Pain
Pain in the foot can result from many factors. Our feet endure a lot of wear and tear just standing and walking around. They bear the burden of our weight, and propel us up and down stairs.
Some spinal imbalances may cause additional stress on one of your feet.
Even chronic health conditions such as fibromyalgia and arthritis can cause pain in your extremities.
Athletics & Foot Pain
In addition to the ‘normal’ conditions that our feet endure, we put extra strain on our feet when participating in sports. With activities that demand running, jumping, starting, stopping and turning, it’s no surprise that so many athletes turn to us for pain management services.
Athletes may need relief from a sports-related injury or a condition called plantar fasciitis, where the long band of tissue on the bottom of the feet is strained, leading to pain in the arch or heel.
Some athletes suffer from metatarsalgia, a condition causing pain and inflammation in the ball of the foot.
We see other athletes experience pain from flat feet, or fallen arches, making it difficult to compete effectively.

Treatments for Foot Pain
At your first appointment with Dr. Bekkum, he will conduct a thorough examination to understand your injury and determine the cause and extent of your foot pain.
Once he has completed his analysis, Dr. Bekkum will recommend a plan of action to provide rehabilitation and pain management.
As part of the treatment, we may recommend chiropractic adjustments to realign your spine and extremities to reduce the stress that may be placed on your feet.
Dr. Bekkum also utilizes Kinesiology taping to reduce swelling, improve stability, and relieve pain.
For some patients, electrical stimulation can be helpful in rejuvenating tired muscles.
If there is significant swelling, we recommend heat and ice therapy as part of the process.
Sports Injury Rehabilitation
For sports-related injuries, we provide rehabilitative care using our in-house equipment and prescribe home exercises as well.
In certain situations Dr. Paul Bekkum may prescribe orthotics as part of the treatment process. Orthotics are custom-made prescription shoe inserts which are designed to provide support and stability for your entire body by correcting an improper gait or alignment.
