Foot Pain With Sandals

March 8, 2013

Spring is right around the corner here in Aurora, IL and with that comes sandal weather.  But are sandals good for your feet?  The majority of the time the answer is no.  Most sandals, especially flip-flops, have no true arch support and can lead to foot and knee pain.  When the medial arch of the foot is not properly supported it begins to fall, or pronate, which puts pressure on the material across the foot.  As the foot flattens it also rotates the lower leg and puts rotational pressure on the knee.  Wearing sandals with poor support can lead to plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, metatarsalgia, shin splints, and knee pain.  Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL carries a line of orthotic sandals that provides the arch support that your foot needs while giving you a comfortable and fashionable alternative to your flip-flops.  They come in many styles and can be viewed at the Foot Levelers website.  If you are interested, call the office at 630-236-3090 and find out how orthotic sandals can help your foot pain.  Orthotics are covered by most insurance with little to no cost to the patient.  Call today to see if you have coverage.

Plantar Fasciitis and Orthotics

March 4, 2013

Dr Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL specializes in the treatment of foot pain like plantar fasciitis.  Plantar fasciitis is comes from the inflammation of the connective material on the bottom of the foot called the fascia.  Trauma and overuse are the most common causes but it is a very common condition experienced by runners and athletes.  Hallmark signs of plantar fasciitis are foot pain first thing in the morning or at the beginning of exercise.  The pain is usually localized in the medial arch of the foot or in the heel.  The pain is relieved by rest or stretching but flares up again with activity.  This injury can become chronic and remain for months or can go away within days of onset.  Dr Dolan has been treating plantar fasciitis for years and gets great results using therapeutic ultrasound, soft tissue massage, stretching, and custom-made foot orthotics to support the arches.  The orthotics help to support all 3 arches of the foot to relieve stress from the fascia and allow the foot to heal while still allowing activity.

Orthotics

February 28, 2013

In my opinion, there is nothing more frustrating than foot pain.  You feel it every step of the day.  It forces you to skip workouts, change shoes, and stay home more.  And just when you think it is gone and you have rested it enough…it comes back.  Although there are some serious causes of foot pain that need to be addressed by a podiatrist, most can be solved by home exercises, stretching, rest, and custom-made foot orthotics.  Dr Dolan of Dolan Family Chiropractic in Aurora, IL specializes in the treatment of foot and ankle conditions using foot orthotics.  These conditions may include plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, metatarsalgia, and chronic ankle sprains.  Using a casting system and computer technology, Dr Dolan can evaluate the arches of the foot to determine if pronation, or flattening of the foot, is present and fit your foot to a custom-made insert that goes in your shoe and supports the 3 arches of the foot into the correct position, relieving any stress on the foot.  These inserts replace the generic factory insole of your shoe and are extremely comfortable and very supportive.  The inserts come with a 2 year warranty but can last much longer.  And the best part is that your insurance will probably cover a set at no charge to you.  So if you are having foot pain and have tried everything without getting any relief, call Dr Dolan at 630-236-3090 to set up a free in office consultation to see if custom-made foot orthotics are right for you.
