Helping Manage Your Leg and Foot Pain

Helping Manage Your Leg and Foot Pain

Dr. Mohinder Chawdhry of Total Health Center understands that leg and foot pain in Battle Creek, MI, or Lake Odessa, may impact your life permanently. It might be tough to walk, work, and have fun when your legs and feet hurt all the time. Thankfully, there are many ways you can minimize your leg and foot troubles and provide yourself with relief. Working with a doctor helps improve this process.

Lifestyle Changes

Some doctors may discuss various lifestyle changes that may help with your foot and leg pain. These may vary from losing weight, exercising regularly, eating a healthier diet, and quitting unhealthy habits like smoking or drinking alcohol. However, your doctor may suggest you only make these changes according to their guidelines to minimize potential complications.

Over-the-Counter Medications

Some people may find leg and foot relief by taking various types of over-the-counter medications. For example, aspirin may help minimize inflammation and decrease your pain if inflammation is the root cause. You may also take other painkillers, though these items may vary in their usefulness depending on which you use. Talk to your doctor about leg and foot pain treatments in Battle Creek, MI.

Prescription Medications

Your doctor may prescribe one or more medications that help manage your pain. These include antiplatelet agents that help blood from sticking together and causing pain in your legs and feet. Other drugs may include more powerful painkillers that suppress your pain and minimize your suffering. Your doctor will carefully discuss these options with you to narrow down your best choices.

Physical Therapy

Your doctor may prescribe physical therapy if you're recovering from surgery or injury. Physical therapy helps strengthen the tendons, ligaments, and muscles in your legs and feet. It also helps restore general movement capability and minimize chronic conditions. Typically, doctors try this method before using invasive options.


In some situations, you may need surgery to manage your pain. This may be more common if you suffer degenerative bone or muscle conditions that make your pain persistent or chronic. Your surgeon will try to identify the least-invasive option and progress from there, hoping to get you on the road towards recovery without requiring lengthy surgery.
