The constant dull ache of chronic foot pain makes the whole body feel fatigued. Whether it’s the chronic ache from arthritis, slow burn of plantar fasciitis or sharp, stabbing heel spur, the days seem much longer when you’re dying to get off your feet. For many, the pain begins right out of bed, as soon as the first foot hits the ground – and follows through the day, like a monkey on your back, slowly picking away at your energy and patience. It isn’t long before you’ve spent countless dollars – trying different inserts, shoes, therapists, doctors and treatments and yet disabling foot pain persists.
This is because the typical treatment cycle of medication and surgery rarely provide complete answers. There are many causes of foot pain and sometimes surgery is necessary, however it leaves scar tissue behind that's less functional and sometimes disabling. Medication for foot problems is usually just a cover up and rarely, if ever, addresses the cause of the problem. While some foot pain patients do find relief with traditional medicine, many are looking elsewhere to avoid the side effects, addiction problems and risks of surgery.
Many foot pain patients are excited to finally find the answers they’ve been looking for in regenerative medicine. Besides no adverse effects or dangers with surgery, regenerative medicine actually helps the body repair damaged tissue. So it works great for helping patients with foot problems from damage, for example degenerative arthritis of the feet. Regenerative medicine is also very helpful with inflammatory conditions like plantar fasciitis and chronic ligament problems. This natural therapy has also shown to reduce the size of osteophytes, so it’s an excellent treatment for heel spurs.
If you have foot pain that won’t go away, come to Solutions Integrated Medicine to find out if regenerative medicine can help you. We have much experience with foot problems and have seen terrific results with regenerative medicine and heel spurs, arthritis in the feet and plantar fasciitis.
