As the foundation for your lower body’s movement, the foot and its numerous bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles can be a source of significant joint pain.

Often associated with inappropriate footwear or poor alignment, pain in the foot is most commonly associated with trauma, such as a fracture; disease, such as osteoarthritis; deformities, such as bunions; or stress injuries.

If you are experiencing any of the following foot pain symptoms, it may be time to visit with a foot specialist.

  • Numbness in the foot
  • Pain in the heel, ball, or arch of the foot
  • Inability to perform daily activities without foot pain
  • Change in sensation or color of skin or toenail
  • Swelling or tenderness
  • If the afflicted area looks deformed or if you have lost function

A consultation with a foot doctor is the best way to differentiate between a severe foot condition and minor foot injury.

At Skagit Northwest Orthopedics, we understand that foot pain can have a significant impact on your daily life, and we will work with you to develop a treatment plan specific to your needs.
