Foot pain is a common problem with a wide range of possible causes.
Common causes of foot pain include:
- Sprains and strains
- blisters, corns and calluses
- ingrown toe nails
- plantar fasciitis (heel pain)
- Morton's neuroma
- Achilles tendon injuries
- Embedded objects
- Diabetic foot problems
- Broken or cracked bones (fractures)
Diagnosis for foot pain can be made on pain or problems based on symptoms and medical history. Further imaging tests like a bone scan, foot X-ray or MRI and blood tests, joint fluid test or other lab test can be helpful in making diagnosis.
Feet carry you from here to there every day. But you may not think much about them until they hurt. And when they do, you want relief. To get the right treatment, you need to know the problem. The first thing to consider is where your pain is located.
