"Hi how are you doing everybody, this is Dr. Carlock over a Village Family Clinic. We get a question a lot from patients recently, I've had patients come in with pain in their foot and a lot of people are wondering, like, where is this pain coming from? So a lot of times, actually more often than not, where you're feeling the pain is not necessarily where it's originating. Of course you could have plantar fasciitis, or a sprain, or something else going in the foot. We would screen for that but most of the time believe it or not, the pain in the foot is actually coming from the back.

So, if you're feeling like a tingling or a sharp pain, a lot of times recently in the clinic we figured out that it's coming from the back. So the body is designed in such a way that the nerves come out off the spinal cord in the spine. All these nerves in the lower back they go all the way down the leg into the foot. You can see a better picture here, they're all converging from that sciatic nerve that goes down your leg and then all the way to the foot. If some is being pinched in here, whether it's from a disc or something being out of place, sometimes if there's a classic pattern where you feel all the way down but every once in a while you feel it just in your foot. It's our job to discern whether that's the case, and if so, we can definitely help it out. So, if you're experiencing some foot pain you don't really know where it's coming from, come on in we'll check you out and we'll get it figure out for you."
