Common Causes of Foot Pain

Common Causes of Foot Pain


Did you know that the human foot consists of 26 bones, 33 joints and hundreds of muscles, nerves and ligaments?  Yet its marvelous, complex structure is often taken for granted.  Most feet endure hours of punishment every day.  Snug shoes, repeated pounding and cramped positions are all in a day’s work.  Not surprisingly, pain spreads throughout the foot, including the toes, ball of the foot, arch, instep, sole, heel and ankle.

Some foot discomfort may seem like a mere minor annoyance.  Other pain, which interferes with work, exercise or maneuverability, is more serious.  However, any foot pain — whether it is small and intermittent or sharp and constant — deserves attention.  Fortunately, chiropractic care may help.

The following are some of the most common causes of foot pain:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Ankle sprain
  • Injury

This office teaches patients about the connection between mind, body and spirit.  We know that pain any segment of the body is connected to the whole system.  That’s why we encourage you to focus on preventing dysfunction in the body prior to the onset of pain.  We’re your partners in health and want you to be well — from head to toe, including the foot!Dr. Barbara Smith
