Foot pain treatment

Your feet are your foundation. Recurring podiatric pain — mild or severe — can present a considerable problem (morning, noon, and night), limiting your mobility and day-to-day activities. If you’re not finding relief after a few minutes off your feet, you must meet with a podiatrist. Arizona Foot Doctors, a team of podiatry professionals, administers non-invasive and non-surgical foot pain treatments to individuals and families.

Treating foot pain at Arizona Foot Doctors in Scottsdale

At Arizona Foot Doctors in Scottsdale, we take your discomfort seriously. Despite the feet being relatively small compared to the rest of the body, they carry the weight of the entire body. Feet experience a wide array of issues, ranging from external to musculoskeletal to foot bone problems. A simple foot check-up with our podiatry team can significantly improve your quality of life.

Our comprehensive evaluation includes a detailed conversation about medical history, explores all areas of the foot, identifies the root cause of pain, and delivers options for foot treatments that result in lasting and effective foot pain relief. We even discuss insurance and financing options to ensure you get the compassionate care you need without worrying about the expense. We will work together with you to determine the best treatment option and guide you every step of the way.

Plantar fasciitis

The plantar fascia is the thick band of tissue that connects the toes to the heel bone. When the tissue becomes inflamed, it can cause an intense stabbing pain in the bottom of the foot near the heel region or close to it (plantar fasciitis). Contributing factors of plantar fasciitis include obesity, running, and the formation and function of the foot itself.

Bone spurs

A bone spur is a foot bone problem resulting in overgrowth or outgrowth along the edge of the bone. Bone spurs on the foot can occur on the top of the foot, the arch, the toes, or the heel. Bone spurs are generally caused by the rubbing of bone against bone for an extended period. Anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy, custom orthotic inserts, and massage are just a few methods that Arizona Foot Doctors will use to treat bone spurs.


When pressure is applied on the big toe over a consistent period over time, a bunion can develop. Bunions are painful, bony bumps located on the joint of the big toe. Wearing shoes that fit and allow your toes room to move can help alleviate the pressure. Bunion treatment at our Scottsdale clinic may include custom foot orthotics, laser therapy, and other modern, non-surgical treatments.

Other common foot problems

Complications from other issues — like arthritis, diabetes, and plantar warts — can all cause foot pain. Whether the issue stems from the structure of the foot, inflammation, nerve damage, or another cause, it is vital to treat foot pain before the issue worsens. When you and your family visit AFD, we’ll conduct a thorough examination to determine if any of these problems could be the cause of your foot pain.
