Living with foot pain is, well, painful. It may have started out as a blister in a new pair of shoes, a sharp stabbing pain when you run, or aching and inflammation at the end of the day. But now it’s starting to make its way into your everyday activities. You aren’t one to normally be dramatic, but this foot pain is starting to ruin your life. Maybe you can relate to one of the following scenarios, learn more about the foot problem causing the pain, and have an idea of the kind of treatment to check out.
Ruining your workouts
You look forward to waking up each morning and going for your 3 mile run. It’s like your coffee – it wakes you up and gives you energy for the day. But lately, as soon as your feet touch the floor when you stand out of bed, there is a sharp stabbing pain that shoots through the bottom of your foot. You’ve been suffering through it and running anyway, but it’s getting hard to ignore and making you start off the day cranky instead of in a good mood.
You could have: plantar fasciitis

Ruining your fashion
You take pride in the way you look, which almost always includes the trendiest pair of strappy high heels or stiletto boots, but you just can’t take it anymore. You have a bump on your toe that is so excruciatingly painful when it rubs against your shoes that you want to shriek in agony. You won’t be caught dead in a pair of flats or loafers at the office but you need to do something!
You could have: bunions or hammertoes
You might benefit from: minimally invasive surgery
Ruining your profession
You can’t help it – you love your security job. The adrenaline rush it brings each day in anticipation of a foot pursuit or the confidence it brings knowing you’re trusted with the safety and protection of the individuals inside the building. The uniform isn’t bad either! The only problem is, you’re walking or standing for at least 8 hours a day and not only are you experiencing foot pain, but pain in your knees, hips, back, and neck as well. You just ache at the end of your shift.
You could have: misalignment in your feet
You might benefit from: HyProCure® treatment
Ruining your social life
You’ve been invited again to spend the weekend at the lake with your best friend, only that involves being barefoot, and you can’t show your toes in public. They’ve started to appear yellow, crusty and jagged and it’s embarrassing. How can you decline the invitation again? She’s going to know something is up and you don’t want to talk about it. Covering up the problem with nail polish just isn’t cutting it anymore, not to mention your toenail is starting to lift off of the nail bed and it hurts!
You could have: toenail fungus
You might benefit from: toenail fungus laser treatment
Ruining your wallet
You don’t know what’s causing your foot pain, and you’ve tried so many conservative over-the-counter treatments the receipts are starting to add up. Nothing is working and you can’t afford to keep trying new treatments and breaking the bank. You also can’t afford to live with the foot pain any longer either.
