There Are Many Types of Foot Pain

The feet endure the weight of the body, and many people suffer from foot pain for various reasons. The feet are responsible for walking, running, and balancing the body, and it is beneficial to wear shoes that fit properly, possibly helping to prevent potential foot conditions. One of the most common foot ailments is known as flat feet, and may be treated by wearing custom-made orthotics. Heel pain may indicate plantar fasciitis or a heel spur, and this may come from standing on hard or uneven surfaces for most of the day. Some people have toe pain which may occur from placing excess stress on the top part of the foot while exercising. A sprain that suddenly happens at the bottom of the big toe is known as turf toe. This can occur as a result of the big toe being bent beyond its normal range of motion. Any type of foot pain requires a visit to the podiatrist, and it is suggested that you contact this type of doctor who can determine the cause and offer correct treatment solutions.
