When your feet hurt, everything you do becomes more difficult. Pain gets in the way of work, play, and even basic daily activities. You can’t live the way you want to live.
Foot pain is, unfortunately, very common. Almost everyone will experience it at least once in their lives. But that doesn’t mean foot pain is normal, and it doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it. Pain is a clear sign that something isn’t working properly and needs to be fixed. At Northwest Extremity Specialists, our physicians are dedicated to helping you back on your feet.
Where Does It Hurt?
The first step on the path to treatment is an accurate diagnosis. Many painful conditions have largely overlapping symptoms, but may require very different treatment approaches. We take as much time as necessary to review your symptoms, perform any necessary tests, and talk with you to determine the exact cause of your pain and the best way forward.
Are you experiencing any of the following?
- Heel pain
- Arch pain
- Ball of foot pain
- Ankle pain
- Top of foot pain
- Toe pain
- Shin pain
No matter where you hurt, we can help.
