Have you begun to notice a burning sensation in your feet pretty much all the time? While we all have days where our feet burn and ache after we’ve spent many hours on them, it is not normal to experience this on an ongoing basis. This condition is something we see frequently in patients at The Foot & Ankle Center, PC and can be a sign of a more serious problem. There are many possible reasons for this annoying symptom. In most cases, burning feet are associated with a nerve problem. It is also more likely to occur in patients who are over the age of 50. Other possible causes of burning feet include: 

Getting Relief

Patients whose feet feel like they are on fire more often than not should schedule an appointment with our board certified foot and ankle surgeon, Dr. Leonard M. Talarico in our Pooler office. Until your appointment, you can try to relieve the burning feeling by taking the following steps:

  • Avoid standing for long periods of time
  • Be sure that your shoes fit properly and provide adequate support for your feet (if you have any questions about the best type of shoes for your unique foot structure, ask the foot doctor)
  • Take daily foot baths
  • Choose cotton socks over synthetic fibers for better breathability
  • Put shock-absorbing insoles in your shoes (the podiatrist may prescribe custom orthotics to correct mechanical foot problems)

Don’t delay in scheduling an evaluation of your burning feet. The best time to diagnose and treat most podiatric problems is when they are in their very early stages. Contact us by calling: (912) 330–8885.
