15 Years with Foot Pain, Finally Treated.

 

How has foot pain affected you?

I started having foot problems when I was about thirty years old and had been dealing with it for 15 years.
 
I remember waking up one day and getting out of bed, I felt like I was stepping on pins and needles. I remember the next day was even worse when I tried to get up. The pain was shooting into the back of my heel!
 
Running, working out, and mixed martial arts are my favorite activities outside of work. With my condition, I wasn't able to do any of these things. 
 

How did you deal with it?

I remember thinking early on that it would eventually go away, but the pain just never went away. It became very aggravating after dealing with foot pain for so long! I just became used to it and accepted it as part of life. For the longest time, taking anti-inflammatories everyday just became routine for me.
 
I also went to other doctors and specialists and they all told me my athletic days were over. I just couldn't accept that. They gave me options that would temporarily relieve the pain, but nothing addressed the real cause.
 
I thought my options had run out until I went to Neuhaus Foot & Ankle. You don't realize life can be a lot better with proper treatment. I realized that I didn't have to live with this foot pain forever.
 

What was your experience with Neuhaus Foot & Ankle?

My podiatrist was very knowledgeable and told me they would be able to make a difference. In my experience, they made a huge difference. They fixed the real root of the problem. He didn't just put a bandaid on it. Everyone at Neuhaus Foot & Ankle showed empathy and compassion. They lived up to what they said they would be able to do.
