For example, is your pain simply related to ill-fitting shoes? Or has high-impact exercise led to injuries such as plantar fasciitis, stress fractures, sprains or arthritis? For some individuals the onset of severe foot pain is a symptom of an underlying medical condition like arthritis, gout, diabetes or obesity.
Consequently, the first step in resolving chronic foot pain is to obtain an accurate and complete diagnosis. At the Kaplan Center our physicians have years of experience treating patients with chronic pain conditions such as foot pain, and we completely reject the notion that “you just have to live with it.”
At your first visit, your Kaplan physician will take time exploring the onset of your condition, the specific nature of your symptoms and the overall status of your health. You’ll also be asked about the medications and therapies you’ve tried in the past, and what has and hasn’t worked for you. To gather additional information about your condition, specialized diagnostic laboratory testing may be necessary.
After reviewing all of the factors contributing to your condition, your physician will spend time talking with you about your diagnosis and working with you to create a customized and multi-dimensional treatment plan that addresses not only your immediate pain, but also any possible underlying or co-existing conditions that may be causing or contributing to aggravating your symptoms.
We offer a multitude of effective, non-surgical treatment options, including:
- Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
- Vitamin & Magnesium Intravenous Supplementation
- Nutritional Counseling
If surgery is your best option, we will coordinate with any other medical providers involved in your case and stay course with you throughout your treatment and recovery.
We’re here for you, and we want to help. Our goal is to return you to optimal health as soon as possible.
