Alternative Treatments for Hand and Foot Pain

Doctor Examining A Patient’s Hand

It goes without saying that our hands and feet play a large role in our daily lives. Feet support our entire body and keep us moving, while hands help us accomplish any task imaginable. When either of these areas is in pain, it’s easy to reach for painkillers to get through the discomfort. However, alternative therapies are available at AIMS Clinic without involving medication or surgery – and the results are more than just a quick fix. Here’s a breakdown of what we offer for hand and foot pain treatment.

What We Treat

We encounter a variety of ailments in the hands and feet of our patients. If you are experiencing hand pain, we can help you combat symptoms such as reduced grip strength, sensations like numbness, tingling or burning, swelling and stiffness in the hands, fingers or wrists. These could all be signs of a number of conditions, including:

  • Nerve compression
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Tendonitis
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • B12 deficiency
  • And more…

In terms of foot pain, there are many contributing factors. Its origin may stem from other parts of the body, such as the spine, or it could simply relate to the type of shoes you’re wearing. Regardless of the cause, our team of experts will utilize alternative medicine to get to the root of the problem. Foot pain can stem from any of the following symptoms or conditions:

  • Poor posture, pinched nerves or abnormal gait
  • Arthritis, diabetes, infection, sciatica and more
  • Injuries from a trauma or due to overload or increase in physical activity
  • Faulty foot structure, including flat feet, flat arches, high arches and more
  • Foot-specific issues, such as bunions, calluses, plantar warts, heel spurs and ingrown toenails

A number of lifestyle factors can also play a role in foot pain. Excess body weight may place an additional burden on your feet, while poor diet, vitamin deficiencies and dehydration can also lead to discomfort. And while activity may currently cause foot pain to increase, in many cases it’s a lack of activity that leads to the problem in the first place.
