Foot Pain: What It Is and Why It Happens

It’s so easy to take our feet for granted, until they start to hurt. When you have foot pain, you realize the vital role your feet play in getting you from one place to another.

When your feet hurt, the only thing that you want is relief, because the pain is unbearable and is not something you can ignore. You need help, and you need it now.

Relieving foot pain starts with examining where your feet hurt.

Is it the balls of your feet or the heels? Or do you have pain in your arches or on one of your toes? Pain on the outer edge of your foot may mean something drastically different than having pain on the inner edge of your foot.

Why You Need a Pain Doctor

Is the pain in the heel of your foot? This may indicate plantar fasciitis. This is inflammation of the tissues that sit in between your heel and the bones that go to your toes. Or you may have bone spurs, which are irregular bone growths.

Does the Ball of Your Foot Hurt?

Doctors refer to this pain as metatarsalgia. It’s a fancy way of saying that the ball of your foot is inflamed.

Pain on Your Arch, Toe, or Outer Edge of Your Foot?
Gout is often felt in your big toe. Pain on the outer edge of your foot could be an indication that the fifth metatarsal bone has been fractured.

What Causes Foot Pain?

You use your feet constantly, and there is an endless list of reasons of why your feet might hurt. The pain could result from over exerting yourself to putting too much pressure on your feet when you jump or run.

It could stem from wearing shoes that are just too small for your feet, or you could have a diet that is high in purine that is leading to gout.

Whatever the reason, your getting better depends on you having the right treatment. If you delay in getting the right treatment for too long, you might not be able to walk comfortably or at all, and this will have a negative impact on your life.

We can help treat your pain! Schedule an appointment with the physicians of Texas Pain Relief Group today.
