Posts for tag: Reduce Pain in Feet

By Dr. Philip Pinsker

Category: Foot Care

Your feet and ankles are one of the most common places in your entire body for aches and pains. Sadly, it has become common to ignore pain and allow it to persist without treatment. Avoiding treatment can only result in further damage.

However, in order to reduce pain and improve the health of your feet and ankles follow these helpful guidelines:

  • Increase blood circulation

    • Your feet can suffer from poor circulation because they are the farthest limb from your heart. You can increase blood flow through proper posture and daily exercise. Make sure to always stand and sit up straight. You should also conduct a series of exercises specific to your feet, ankles and toes.
  • Find the right fit in footwear

    • Wearing the correct size concerning the length, width and height of your feet is extremely important. But it is not the only aspect to consider in choosing the right footwear. You should look for shoes that are specific to your daily routine and your chosen physical activities.
  • Invest in custom molded orthotics

    • Foot pain can be directly related to the shape of your feet. Orthotics can offer your feet the support and cushioning they specifically need. Orthotics have also been proven to reduce your risk for obtaining a foot or ankle related injury while reducing pain caused by current ailments.

If you are currently experiencing severe pain in your feet or ankles, or would like to be fitted for custom molded orthotics, contact our office at (724) 225-7410 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Phil Pinsker.
