Foot Pain Got You Down?

Members of the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society found that the answer may be yes—both physically and literally. Researchers presented a study to their peers that showed people with on-going foot and ankle pain scored higher on assessments used to rate feelings of anxiety, neurosis, and depression. This was compared to healthy individuals who made up the control group.

What does this mean for sufferers of foot and ankle pain? Be aware that it can take its toll over time. Suffering from chronic discomfort due to heel pain, a bunion, or a variety of other foot conditions results in a wide range of emotions due to each difficult step. If you begin to feel anxious or depressed, don’t ignore these feelings. Help is available!

Ignorance is not bliss, and while you may think that you are successfully ignoring your foot and ankle concerns, the cost to your mental health could be great. Isolation due to loss of mobility, anxiety over loss of income, and depression as a result of a lower quality of life are all serious issues that need to be addressed. With this updated information highlighting the need for a holistic approach to foot care, patients should share with their foot specialist all concerns and medical history—both mental and physical.

Prevention is key when it comes to healthy feet and ankles. Wear the proper shoes, use good hygiene techniques, and see Dr. Marco Vargas if you are experiencing pain. Put your best foot forward, and take care of yourself with the help of our expert staff. Make an appointment at one of our three Texas locations today or schedule online.
