A story about Feet and the trouble they get into
Your feet carry you from here to there every day. You may not think much about them until they hurt. And when they do, you want relief. Most people have simply accepted foot pain as a part of their lives, discomfort is usually a sign that something isn't right. The following will help you identify the problem.
Plantar Fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. The Plantar Fascia is a ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. If you strain your Plantar Fascia, it gets weak, swollen, and inflamed. The heel or the bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk. Plantar Fasciitis affects people who are on their feet a good portion of the day.
If you experience a sharp pain in the bottom of the heel when you stand up from a sitting position, you may have Plantar Fasciitis. Planter Fasciitis can be caused by frequent wearing of flip flops, wearing shoes that are too tight or shoes that no longer have support. The injury will persist and take longer to heal the longer you abuse your feet.
Extreme burning pain on the ball of the foot and base of toes could possibly be Mortons Neuroma. As fibrous tissue develops around nerves, they becomes compressed and therefore irritated. This is when the burning pain persists mainly in the third and fourth toes.
Ball of Foot Pain could be Metatarsalgia. You feel this pain and inflammation in the ball of your foot. Ill-fitting shoes are the usual cause. But you might get it from strenuous activity, such as running or jumping. Its sometimes called a stone bruise as well.
Fallen arches , or flat feet, happen when the arches of the feet flatten out (often when standing or walking), causing foot pain and other problems.
Neuropathy, or nerve damage in the feet, is most often caused by Diabetes. The pain can be burning, stinging, or feel like electricity. It can happen anywhere in the feet.
Tendinitis is inflammation and irritation of tendons, the bands attaching muscles to bones. Tendons run along all the surfaces of the foot and can cause foot pain in many different locations.
If you have foot pain at night, you may have a different problem, such as arthritis, or a nerve problem such as Tarsal Tunnel syndrome.
For older people, episodes of foot pain and stiffness can be Osteoarthritis. The condition can cause wear and tear in the tissues and joints of the heel and big toe. A less common diagnosis is Rheumatoid Arthritis. The pain in your feet occur from inflamed joint tissues due to your immune system attacking joints.
