I understand if you have been experiencing pain in your feet or ankles. Pain in your feet or ankles can often be debilitating. Whether you are walking, running, biking, or even driving, applying even the smallest amount of pressure is unbearable. Ultimately, you should be seeking a solution for your pain rather than a remedy.
While taking an over-the-counter pain medication can help ease the pain, you may actually be doing more harm than good. For example, if you have an advanced sprain or heel spurs, you will need more than pain relievers to truly heal.
Additionally, there are several symptoms that cause similar pains or discomfort, even though their root causes are completely different. A sprain could actually be a fracture, and a bunion could actually be hammertoes.
All of these conditions require very different solutions to heal and ultimately get better.

To Your Healthiest Feet and Life,
P.S. I urge you to call if you have been experiencing pain in your feet or ankles for more than 3 days. Continuing to walk on certain conditions can cause more damage, resulting in a need for advanced solutions with longer downtimes. If we can address the pain earlier on, we can reduce the need for invasive intervention.
