Botox for Foot Pain: Younger Feeling Feet

Flat Feet FrontHave you ever wished for younger looking feet? Probably not, but we’ve all hoped for younger feeling feet! The older we get, the more difficult it can be to get out of bed in the morning. Especially if the first steps of each day are met with foot pain, staying under the covers may seem like a better alternative. However, a study published earlier this year offers new hope for an old problem. Once reserved for the wrinkles of the rich and famous, Botox is now being used to treat a myriad of health conditions including pain in the feet.

Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain and affects many Americans each year. Steroid injections have been the preferred treatment for decreasing irritation and discomfort of the tissue that runs between the toes and the heel. The study, which was conducted in Mexico and published in Foot & Ankle International, concluded that Botox combined with a regimen of stretching exercises accomplished this goal more effectively than steroid injections.

So far the FDA has not approved the drug for this diagnosis, but the medical community is aware of its varied uses. For example, it is being utilized to treat health concerns in other areas of the body including the bladder.

If you aren’t ready to leap into the unknown waters of Botox therapy for foot pain, Dr. Marco Vargas is here to help. Conservative measures such as a change in footwear and custom orthotics may resolve your heel pain. If not, Dr. Vargas offers laser therapy for more severe cases. Look no further—you’ll find the answers to your foot discomfort here. Visit our convenient locations: Sugar Land and Houston, TX. No time to call? Schedule an appointment online. We look forward to serving you!
