high_heel_foot_painIt’s Friday night and you’re ready for a night out on the town. You meet up with friends for a couple of drinks. After a few rounds the suggestion to go dancing comes up. Your spirits immediately fall because your feet are starting to hurt and dancing is the last thing you want to do. You don’t want to miss out on the all the fun though…so you decide to dance through your foot pain.

You can’t have all your friends having all the fun without you. You take a deep breath, tighten the ankle straps on your stilettos, balance on your 4 inch heels, and take a step out onto the dance floor. As you twist, turn and shake your booty throughout the night you have intermittent moments of extreme foot pain from dancing the night away, but you grin and bear it. You wish you could be twirling in your well-supported loafers, but that wouldn’t be hot and sexy at all!

If you can pinpoint the underlying causes of your foot pain now you won’t miss out on all the fun later.

Once a podiatrist at Adler Footcare evaluates your foot, they will recommend the best treatment option for you. This may include:

  • Minimally Invasive Foot Surgery – a procedure done by making a small incision the size of a pinprick.
  • HyProCure – a stent is inserted between the ankle bone and heel bone to keep the ankle from rolling in and align your feet and body.
  • Stem Cell Therapy – injects live birth stem cells into the affected area causing pain and helps build cartilage and improves range of motion.
  • Custom Orthotics – shoe inserts made for your unique foot structure to help if you’re not bearing weight properly.

Sometimes just changing your footwear can make a world of difference, and it doesn’t necessarily have to be loafers, but a shoe that offers support and stability for the specific areas in your foot that are causing you pain.

You don’t have to let your foot pain keep you from missing out on all the fun. But left unchecked, your foot problems will only get worse and then you’ll be left living life in loafers! Take a step you won’t regret and visit Adler Footcare for a free evaluation. We believe feet shouldn’t hurt and neither should their treatment…and we like to have fun too!
