Are you frustrated or worried about foot pain?
Is it challenging to walk or navigate flights of stairs?
Or are you in pain when you want to run, play sports, or go to the gym?
Sick of wondering if you will ever be able to keep active and mobile so you can… start enjoying your life again?!
It’s easy to think it may not be that big of a deal and will go away on its own.
Or, maybe you think that its normal for someone your age to have foot pain as you just “tweaked it” or its only a bit of “wear and tear” so no big deal.
You can’t recall a specific time or reason why you should have foot pain – it just doesn’t seem to be getting any better!
If that’s happening to you, you’re not alone – we hear this type of thing all the time.
In fact, foot pain is A VERY COMMON problem that we see in our physiotherapy clinic in Montreal.
When it comes to your foot pain, I’m sure you want to know:
In fact, the majority of our clients believe that when they get foot pain it will go away on its own.
You hope you will get up one morning and feel like nothing ever happened in the first place. We know it’s annoying… But usually this isn’t what happens. A few months later you are still suffering from foot pain… Usually even worse than when it first started!
If so, we want you to know…
We understand that in many cases folks who visit our Physio Clinic have already been to the doctor and been told to “take a few pills” or “just rest” – then went for a follow-up visit, only to be given MORE rest and stronger medication and possibly suggested to get a support or brace.
They often leave feeling more worried and confused as they were originally told that “things should be ok”.
The problem is that this is rarely the best advice. It’s super easy to just “take a few pills” to get through the day – but that’s undermining your long-term health and doing nothing to address the reason why you can’t walk or run without pain in the first place!
This craziness explains why so many people aged 35+ are dealing with foot pain longer than they should.
What other reasons is my foot pain harder to fix?
It’s because it’s super easy to get confused!
Many people are happy to give you advice… But not all of it is reliable. Perhaps you think that you have to ease up on your walking or running as people have told you that makes foot pain worse, or to apply an ice pack and that should do the trick. Or maybe you need to do these exercises you found on YouTube that are amazing for foot pain.
However, without the help and guidance from a physiotherapist – foot pain can be very hard to manage. Its one of the main reasons why our clients just think it’s a normal part of their life and they just need to accept it… Or they don’t make any decision to get help as they are just so confused on what to do as nothing seems to be helping.
You simply assumed the pain would disappear on its own – but all that happened was the problem never fully resolved and is even getting worse.
You visited the doctor only to be told to “take a few pills” or “just rest” – then went for a follow-up visit, only to be given MORE rest and stronger medication or suggestion for a support or brace.
Someone referred you to a physio in the hospital and you were told there is a long wait list, then after waiting ages for the appointment – were simply handed a sheet of exercises and just get in touch if things don’t improve, which didn’t really meet your expectations or get rid of your problem quickly, if at all.
You searched on YouTube for “The Best Exercises For Foot pain” only to realise that nothing really changed, or it made it WAY WORSE.
A friend, colleague, or family member said: “its common to get foot pain as you get older” – so you accepted that its “just part of my life now”.
You struggled because the pain was so bad you thought the best idea would be to simply take it really easy… But its still bothering you all the time and the pain or discomfort does not seem to have improved so now you are even more worried.
You have seen another Healthcare Professional, or a Physio already, but you didn’t see any real improvement and don’t want to make the same mistake again.
Thought all you needed was “a few foot massages” to lower the pain and discomfort, and although this helped a bit, it only gave you short term relief without any clear understanding of the real problem or a longer-term fix.
You decided to put it off as finances were tight, it was a busy time at work, and you thought it was probably not a big deal anyway – only to realise now that you made a HUGE MISTAKE by not taking care of it earlier as you are now still in pain, concerned about what to do, and its really derailed your life.

Well… Here are a few tips:
Follow an appropriate exercise plan that has been developed by a specialized Physiotherapist who has a clear understanding of your issue. One key component to fixing most foot pain problems is the right series of progressive exercises. Customized exercises given by a Physio will not only tackle your pain and allow you to get mobile – but will ensure your problem is handled so you maximize long term relief… Better yet, you will avoid making your problem even worse like some exercises do without the proper guidance and expertise a Physio can provide.
