Leg and foot pain can come on acutely or be present chronically.
The most common causes include:
Sprains or Strains
These acute types of pain do not require the care provided by Dr. Carney.
If the leg and foot pain becomes chronic and no obvious cause has been found, or if the foot and leg pain is due to problems in the back or neuropathy, then Dr. Carney can often be of help.
Leg pain frequently comes from problems with the leg or back problems but can be felt in one or both legs even without pain in the back. Careful use of the patient’s history, physical exam, and diagnostic tests help Dr. Carney to accurately diagnose the cause of your pain. Accurate diagnosis improves the safety and effectiveness of your care.
Damage to the nerves in the foot causes a condition called neuropathy. When symptoms include numbness, tingling or burning in your feet, when you have trouble walking because of balance problems, or when the bed covers bother your feet, then neuropathy may be the cause of your problem.
Dr. Carney is the only physician in Michiana that has a TREATMENT that heals the nerves that cause the symptoms rather than just masking the symptoms by taking medications.
My 1st experience with Dr. Carney was around 10 years ago. I was experiencing shooting pains in my feet along with the so-called normal neuropathy pains. The shooting pains were my biggest concern. After around 8 to 10 treatments, the shooting pains were eliminated. That relief has lasted nearly 10 years. I recently (past several months) started experiencing additional discomfort in my feet that made it very awkward to stand and walk because it felt like I was standing and walking on some sort of mass under my feet. It made it hard to balance and a very uncomfortable feeling. The medication that I have been on for my neuropathy pain for the past several years has done virtually nothing in the way of relief. So, I decided once again to seek relief with Dr. Carney. After only 6 treatments this time, I can report that that discomfort is gone. Dr. Carney is thorough in his diagnosis and knowledgeable in his treatments. Thank You Dr. Carney!
