Foot Problems: Plantar Fasciitis & Heel Spur Orthotics

One oft-cited area of foot pain is the heel. One cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis, a condition characterized by a stabbing pain in the heel that is most common the first steps of the day. One of the more common forms of treatment for such heel problems is use of a night splint or arch supports.

A bone spur is another source of heel pain. A bone spur is a bone growth that can cause damage to other bones or tissues if it rubs up against them as well as pain. These often form on the foot in the heel area in response to pressure, stress or rubbing, in which case they are often referred to as a “heel spur.”

A common and simple bone spur foot treatment is to add heel orthotics to one’s shoe or to add padding or one might find wearing a compression sock designed for easing heel pain helpful. There are even braces designed for foot bone spur treatment

Plantar Fasciitis can cause Heel Spurs

 

Foot Problems: Bunions

A bunion is another common foot problem. A bunion, also known as hallux valgus, is a bony bump on the outside edge of one’s toe along the joint that is brought on by one’s big toe being pushed toward the one next to it.

Wearing shoes that are too narrow is a common cause of bunions, especially if the shoes are high-heels. Bunions can also result from abnormal bone structure from birth or as a side effect of diabetes or arthritis.

BraceAbility offers the Bort Valco Hallus Vagus Splint and Bunion Regulator that is effective in quickly relieving bunion pain. Indeed, this is the most popular brace in Bort’s extensive line of products. Adding foot orthopedics such as insoles to one’s shoes can also be an effective treatment for bunions.

Diabetic Foot Problems

Foot problems are a common side effect of diabetes. Many of these are related to the foot circulation problems, nerve damage or skin changes that stem from diabetes.

Compression socks designed for improving foot circulation can be helpful to this end. BraceAbility offers these in a number of styles and colors. For more on diabetic foot care, click here.

Fracture and Bone Bruise Foot Treatment

And of course, trauma to the foot can result in a bone fracture or bone bruise. A bone bruise is technically a series of small cracks in the bones as a result of force being put on the foot.

While casting and possibly surgery are often needed to repair a fracture to a bone in the foot, bone bruise foot treatment often involves rest and ice. Recovery for both of these foot injuries may include use of a walking boot or shoe to keep pressure off the injured bone.

Shoes for Foot Problems

For more extreme cases of many of the above and other foot conditions, foot pain orthotics may not be enough to ease pain and surgery may be needed. After the operation, one will likely need special post-operations shoes for foot problems.

BraceAbility offers several foot supports like braces for plantar fasciitis, and shoes for heel problems, specifically, from the respected Bauerfeind line of products.

Such orthotics for heel pain can also be helpful for treating pain related to plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, or diabetic foot problems such as ulcers.
