Whether you're a walker, a runner or just trying to get from A to B, any foot pain can make life difficult. There are a number of contributing factors which can cause discomfort and pain in the foot. Foot pain can be caused by genetically inherited conditions such as a mechanical imbalance in the foot, or developed from an injury or inappropriate foot wear. The foot is comprised of 26 bones and is supported by ligaments, muscle and plantar fascia.
Foot pain and injury is extremely common. Foot pain can be sourced from local structures such as muscles, ligaments, bones and joint or it can be referred from other sources including your lower back and other systemic diseases.
The human foot was originally designed to walk on natural, soft surfaces like earth and sand. Instead, we now spend most of the day on unnatural, hard, flat surfaces like pavements and floors that force our feet to flatten and twist.
Common sources of foot pain include plantar fasciitis, bunion, heel pain, heel spur and ankle injuries.Because foot pain can have so many causes it is very important to have foot pain assessed by a health professional with an expertise in the management of foot pain. Only then can you be confident that your foot pain treatment is managing the "right" cause of your foot pain.
