Do your patients or clients complain about suffering from foot pain or heel pain? Painful and swollen feet will affect ADLs, and if left untreated, can lead to disability.
According to a recent survey by the APMA, roughly 77 percent of Americans has experienced foot pain and that “half of all adults say that foot pain has restricted their activities—like walking, exercising, working, or playing with grandchildren—in some way.”(Day, 2014)
After professionally assessing and treating your patient’s condition, you can provide tools for self-help and maintenance to encourage regular stretching and strengthening and guard against re-injury.
