Are you suffering pain on top of the foot?

Pain on top of foot | Healthy Life Foot Clinic

Does this sound like you – “The top of my foot aches when I put weight on it. The more activity I do the worse it is. And the only shoes that are comfortable are sneakers.”

Pain over the top of the foot is very common. Common causes include arthritis, nerve irritation, incorrect footwear, muscle & tissue tightness & poor foot function.

Simple steps focus on your footwear:
1. supportive footwear will often help
2. making sure the shoe is not too tight across the top of your foot

If your pain is persisting, we will assess several areas including your gait & how you are walking & placing pressure on your foot, the strength of your foot to support your weight properly & whether your footwear is contributing to your pain. Then provide you a treatment plan that will commonly advise on exercise to strengthen your foot & ankle, footwear advice, the possible need for a flexible supportive insole & potentially other therapies.

If you are suffering from pain in your foot, particularly over the top of your foot, call our clinic or book online by clicking on the “Make an Appointment” button.

Professional Podiatry Services in Adelaide

What to expect at your consultation

When you see one of our Podiatrist’s at Healthy Life Foot Clinic, you’ll not only feel welcomed but confident in their care.

We’ll initially take the time to learn about you and your problem and how it’s affected you and what it’s stopping you from doing. We will then take a thorough history and perform a detailed examination to determine what’s wrong and the cause of your problem.

Part of the examination will involve observation of your walking which may also include the use of video or Gaitscan (this measures the pressure applied under your feet). We may also refer you for further xrays or ultrasound if indicated.

Finally, we will give you a plan which will clearly detail what the problem is, why it’s there and what we will do to get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible. Treatment will vary according to your problem but may include a combination of hands on therapy (foot mobilisation and dry needling), strapping, exercise, footwear advice, laser, orthotic therapy and general foot care.
