The foot is comprised of bones, joints, muscles and connective tissue that may be damaged, leading to chronic pain and a diminished quality of life. Texas Pain Institute offers interventional pain management services for residents of Fort Worth, Denton, Southlake, and the nearby areas of Texas who live with foot pain.
What is Foot Pain?
Foot pain is a condition that causes stiffness, weakness, sharp pains, aches, tenderness, and a variety of other symptoms that may make walking, running, and relaxing difficult. The pain may also interfere with primary treatments for the underlying cause of your foot pain. Arthritis is a common reason why people develop long-term foot pain, but the condition may also be linked to inflammation inside the joints, bone spurs, diabetic neuropathy, Raynaud’s disease, bone diseases, and many other medical conditions.
Do I Have Foot Pain?
Symptoms of foot pain may occur in the toes, sole of the feet, in the heel or ankle, or on the top of the foot. You may have cramping, swelling, stiffness, or sharp pains with certain foot movements. Your primary or specialty physician may recognize these symptoms as signs of chronic foot pain and refer you to our practice for interventional pain management services.
What Are the Benefits of Treatment for Foot Pain?
The benefit of chronic pain management services at Texas Pain Institute is to help patients in the Fort Worth area overcome the pain that disrupts their primary treatment plan for the underlying medical condition. We also work with patients who have chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia , that cause ongoing pain and adversely affect a person’s quality of life.
How is Foot Pain Treated?
Based upon your treatment history, we start with the most conservative option, such as vitamin D testing and therapy to ensure that a deficiency is not causing or worsening your chronic pain. Our other options for foot pain are:
- Pharmaceuticals and supplements
- Injections into the pain source in your foot
- Nerve blocks to prevent pain signals to the brain
What Should I Expect After Treatment for Foot Pain?
No downtime is needed for our interventional pain management therapies for foot pain. Some patients note an immediate decrease in their pain immediately after the treatment. Others see a significant reduction in three weeks or less. We explain what to expect from your foot pain treatment at the time of your consultation, and we schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
