What Causes Foot Pain?

Because the feet take on the full weight and balance of your whole body throughout the day, they are highly susceptible to sensations of acute pain. In some cases, the pain is persistent (chronic) and requires the assistance of a foot specialist. These are some of the most common causes of foot pain:

  • Plantar fasciitis (a condition that affects the tendon that connects the toes and heels).
  • Wearing the wrong types of shoes for too long and too often (especially high heels).
  • Inflamed tissues, ligaments, and tendons in the feet.
  • Bunions, corns, and calluses.
  • Carrying excess weight (overweight patients have a higher instance of foot pain according to a study published by the National Library of Medicine).

Foot Pain Remedies

Because most pain in the foot is caused by strains, sprains, damage, stretching, and inflammation of the tissues in the feet, effective remedies are designed to address these specific issues. Common foot pain remedies include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medication, like ibuprofen.
  • Foot exercises.
  • Orthotics (including inserts, cushions, and supports).
  • Surgery to release pressure in the feet.
  • Topical prescription pain relieving creams.
  • Heating and icing therapies to relieve foot pain as recommended by your Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, chiropodist.

Practical Foot Care Advice

Your foot doctor is the best source of care and advice for foot pain. In between appointments with your podiatrist or chiropodist, practice practical foot care in the following ways:

  • If you work on your feet often, take every opportunity to sit down and rest, even if just for a few minutes.
  • Pay attention to how you are walking, as overpronation (rolling the foot inward when you take a step) is a common cause of foot pain
  • Note how your feet feel after wearing specific types of shoes and make adjustments to your footwear collection accordingly.
  • Take the whole body and foot baths more often.
