Foot pain is something that can affect anyone. It is a common ailment and one of the most common reasons for an appointment with a podiatrist. Here are some of the most common causes of foot pain:
1. Bone spurs.
Small calcium formations can form on the base of your big toe or any of your toes. This irritates the nerves in that area and can cause sharp pain. The pain usually comes from specific activities like trying to jam your shoe into a toe box too small or jumping on your toes when you're running.
This causes damage to a nerve or bones in your foot. It comes with specific symptoms, such as bruising, swelling, redness, or hotness around the area of the injury. Some people feel it when they walk, while others feel it while doing something else like running or jumping.
3. Foot pain.
This is the most common cause of heel pain. It is a degeneration of the connective tissue in the bottom of your foot that holds it together and allows it to flex and stretch as you walk.
4. Stress fractures
Very small cracks can form in your bones if they are subjected to stress over a long period without being given enough time to rest and heal themselves.
5. Heel Spur.
This is a painful condition because of an abnormal condition in the bunion area. The bottom of your heel can create an indentation which is then rubbed against the surrounding skin, resulting in pain.
6. Plantar Warts
These are benign growths on the bottom of your feet that can become painful from pressure and friction from shoes. They are generally caused by a virus and are not harmful to health but can cause discomfort to those who have them on their feet for long periods.
