Foot Pain

Does my foot pain require treatment?

If you're not sure whether your foot pain needs care, a visit to Arya Foot & Ankle is the best way to find out what you're dealing with. 

In general, you should seek care if your foot pain persists long enough to interrupt your regular activities or if your pain doesn't improve with rest and over-the-counter pain relievers. 

What causes foot pain?

Your feet are highly complex. Injuries and damage can occur anywhere in your forefoot, midfoot, and hindfoot. Some of the most common reasons for foot pain include: 

  • Achilles tendon injury
  • Bunions
  • Bursitis
  • Fractures
  • Gout
  • Hammertoe
  • Ingrown toenail
  • Infected ulcers
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Neuroma
  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Plantar warts
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

Dr. Arya can expertly identify and treat all foot pain. Many types of foot pain increase without treatment, so scheduling an exam is the best way to get out of pain fast.

What does foot pain treatment involve?

Dr. Arya starts with a clinical exam and often uses digital X-rays or diagnostic ultrasound to identify the problem causing your foot pain. She may also perform gait analysis and other tests to uncover biomechanical issues contributing to your pain. 

Then, she uses a wide menu of treatments to ease your foot pain and encourage natural recovery. Some of the different treatment options include:

Custom orthotics

Custom orthotics can improve foot movement and help you balance your weight better. This can often diminish foot pain and prevent future issues.

Regenerative medicine 

Amniotic membrane injections are rich in substances like growth factors, hyaluronic acid, and collagen. These natural substances combine to start tissue regrowth while reducing inflammation and pain.


Diagnostic injections promote healthy tissue regeneration to relieve your foot pain. Your injection may also contain corticosteroids to combat inflammation. 

Surgical procedures

Dr. Arya can perform many minor surgical procedures in the office, such as partial toenail removal to end foot pain from an ingrown toenail. 

Arya Foot & Ankle also offers a variety of other foot pain treatments, including oral medication and other in-office care.
