Heel pain. Foot pain. Toe pain. Plantar fasciitis pain.
Our foot is designed to cover the necessary surface of the land we need to keep our balance on while walking. If we walk over the uneven surface, foot bones and muscles will accommodate, so that the stress from impact is absorbed and doesn’t go to the ankle or knee.
But the shoes we are wearing block our feet to do all this delicate and precise action. As a result, the foot is losing its function and can’t do the job properly. Simple “If you don’t use, you lose it!” applies here.This is the main reason people suffer from different foot issues. As a last resort, we end up getting orthotics that won’t treat the whole complexity of the foot problem.
If you observe the elderly who must use a walking stick, it is very likely they will depend on it throughout the rest of their lives. Walking stick won’t mend their foot and leg problems. Orthotic is somewhat similar to a walking stick; it may help you to alleviate the pain you are experiencing, relax the pressure and provide comfort, but it doesn’t remedy underlying foot problems.
If the poor walking habit or muscle compensation from the injury causes your foot muscle to over-contract, it will pull the tendon (plantar fasciitis) that is attached to the bone. That creates inflammation around the tendon. If the inflammation worsens, usually the unbearable pain develops in a specific area, or across the entire foot.
Most doctors and practitioners tend to overlook this muscle-related problem because it is never picked up by MRI, CT scan, X-ray and Ultrasound. Even though you suffer from foot pain or toe pain, they cannot make it better. You end up taking medications.
DTMT applied on the foot muscle, accompanied by chiropractic adjustment of foot bones, might be the best treatment of foot pain issues.
