Foot Pain Q & A
Why do I have foot pain?
It’s not unusual for feet to ache after a hard day’s work or when you’ve done more physical activity than usual. You might also get sore feet from wearing ill-fitting shoes or footwear that isn’t right for the kind of activity you’re undertaking, but these everyday issues normally resolve themselves after a night’s rest.
On the other hand, if you have pain in your feet or symptoms that don’t disappear after a rest, there may be another reason behind it. In that case, you need to seek medical advice to find the root cause and address the problem. Dr. House specializes in diagnosing and treating foot and ankle pain.
What might be causing pain in my feet?
There are many possible causes of foot pain, and the most frequently occurring conditions affect either the heel, ball, or toes of your foot:
Common causes of heel pain
- Heel fractures
- Bony growths called heel spurs
- Flat feet
- Stone bruises
- Plantar fasciitis
Common causes of pain in the ball of the foot
- Poorly fitting shoes
- Long-term wearing of high heels
- Vigorous exercise
- Morton’s Neuroma
Common causes of toe pain:
- Claw toe
- Corns and calluses
- Ingrown toenails
- Toe sprain
Pain that extends through the entire foot may be due to a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone or tendon inflammation, which is often a result of incurring sports injuries. It could also be neuropathy, which is a kind of nerve damage frequently experienced by patients with diabetes and other chronic conditions.
How is foot pain diagnosed and treated?
Dr. House conducts a thorough examination of your foot, looks through your medical history, and arranges X-rays or ultrasound exam on site if they’re required. You should also tell him about any accidents or injuries you’ve suffered that could be causing your foot pain.
The treatment Dr. House advises depends on the diagnosis he makes, and with so many potential causes it’s essential to confirm why you’re experiencing foot pain before deciding on a suitable treatment plan.
