What Causes Foot Pain Following Auto Injury?
There are many causes of foot pain. Sometimes foot pain is caused by damage to the nervous system and sometimes it is caused by the foot becoming misaligned during collision.
The Bones in your feet can get misaligned during a Car Accident
There are 26 moveable bones in your feet. They can become misaligned during the force of an impact. Bones out of place in the foot stress ligaments and muscles, and can also put pressure on nerves in the feet. This type of pain can get progressively worse as you continue to walk. Problems with gait can further damage your spine and health.
Your Miami/Sunrise Chiropractor can check the bones of your feet to make sure they are in proper alignment. Dr. Lisa Owen actually has special training to move bones in the feet back into their normal position. Leaving the bones in your feet out of alignment for extended periods of time can result in foot conditions such as bunions, arthritis, bursitis, heel spurs, and other even more painful conditions.
Neurological Foot Pain
Pain in your feet can begin as a result of a herniated disc in the lower back or any other condition that causes impingement the spinal nerves in the lower back that supply the feet. Every part of your body needs 100% of the normal nerve supply in order to work properly. It has been long proven that it takes the weight of a dime to impede the function of a spinal nerve. This is why people with long term lower back pain often end up with knee and foot problems. Without proper nerve supply, the involved joints will begin to degenerate over time. Nerve impingement can also happen anywhere the nerve goes as it travels along its course from the spinal cord to the feet.
Metabolic Conditions can also cause foot pain.
Metabolic conditions such as diabetes, vitamin B deficiencies, mitochondrial dysfunction can can cause nerve damage that can cause serious damage to your feet. Laser therapy is recommended and is very helpful for this type of foot pain and even more effective when combined with special nutritional programs to correct metabolic disorders.
