There are 26 bones in the foot and each one is capable of causing foot pain. Millions of Americans each year complain of having pain in their feet or ankles. The feet are the foundation of the entire body and have a direct impact all the way through the spine. Stabilizing the postural foundation will not only help relieve pain and stress in the feet but can also aide in pain felt in the lower back and spine.
Heel Pain: If pain is located in the heel then the patient may have a condition called plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the band of tissue (fascia) that reaches from the heel to the toes and supports the muscles and arch of the foot. Proper orthotics can help to alleviate and possibly eliminate this pain.
Ball of Foot Pain: Ill fitting shoes are often the cause of this type of pain. Strenuous activity can also be the cause as a result of unusual stress caused by running or jumping to name an example.
Arch Pain: Plantar fasciitis is also the most common cause of this type of pain, it effects the heel, arch or both. It is important to see a doctor right away if you are feeling this type of pain for an extended period of time.
Toe Pain: Although not always the case, gout (a form of arthritis) can cause pain in the toes. Avoiding specific types of food as guided by the team of experts at Holistic Health Care along with rest and ice can help to alleviate the symptoms of gout.
We welcome new patients to Holistic Health Care for postural exams to determine their chiropractic needs. If you’ve never had your feet scanned, you probably don’t know what they are supposed to look like. This new technology provides insight into hidden structural imbalances that may not be apparent to standard evaluations.
Once you have been scanned, the team of experts can discuss options to order a pair of customized orthotics. These orthotics are far superior to anything found at a general store and can help to alleviate foot, ankle and back pain effectively.
Sometimes, I go in for my appointment feeling so stressed out, from work, or traffic, or whatever. Dr. Kianian always knows exactly where the tension is, even if I barely realize it myself. I mean, she can get rid of a headache instantly, just by putting a little pressure on the right spot. I always walk out of there feeling like a new person.

I was being treated by another chiropractor without improvement -over a 9 month period my symptoms were getting worse and progressively limiting my activity. After visiting Dr. Kianian I strated feeling better almost immediately.

My girlfriend was being treated by Dr. Kianian for back pain, and asked her if she could treat asthma. Dr. Kianian told me that people often suffer from asthma because the back is misaligned, which causes the chest muscles tighten up against your lungs. I started treatment, and the results have been great. Dr. Kianian fixed the tightness in my muscles and showed me how years of bad posture had caused my spine to curve the wrong way. She knew exactly what the root of my breathing and allergy problems were, and explained everything clearly to me. Now, I feel like I know what I have to do to stay healthy. My breathing is normal and free again. And, it’s now peak allergy season and I haven’t sneezed once yet.

A friend told me about Dr. Kianian. I knew right away that her method of treatment was unlike anything I had ever had. For the first time, someone really worked my muscles, and told me exactly what was wrong with my back and neck. She’s been treating the muscles and aligning my spine, and after two months of treatment, my pain is 90% gone.

The effectiveness of the treatment here has been a gift! I’ve regained my life. I can sleep the night through without pain – I am essentially pain free now – and I can dance again! I feel less stressed by stressful situations, and I seldom feel neck pain or headaches anymore either. I went in for my back and got more than I thought I needed.
