Tender feet can be a debilitating condition, making walking and standing painful. It can occur due to a variety of reasons, including overuse, injuries, and underlying medical conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, or neuropathy. A thorough examination is needed to determine the underlying cause of the pain, and treatment options can vary based on the cause.
In many cases, conservative treatments can be effective in reducing pain and discomfort. This may include rest, ice therapy, stretching exercises, and over-the-counter pain relievers. Wearing proper footwear with adequate support and cushioning can also provide relief for tender feet.
Orthotics may also be recommended, which are custom shoe inserts designed to correct any imbalances in the foot that may be contributing to the pain. Physical therapy may be prescribed to help improve strength and flexibility in the foot and ankle, and in some cases, immobilization may be necessary to allow the foot to heal.
If conservative treatments are not effective, more advanced treatment options may be considered. This may include cortisone injections to reduce inflammation, or even surgery in severe cases.
