Types of Foot Pain and Their Potential Causes

Monday, 19 October 2020 00:00

Foot and ankle pain is fairly common and can have a large variety of causes. Different parts of your feet, toes, or ankles may be affected. Skin problems of the feet include plantar warts, corns, calluses, blisters, athlete’s foot, ingrown toenails, and skin infections. Examples of conditions that can affect the joints of the feet and ankles include gout, bunions, hammertoes, and arthritis. Foot and ankle pain may be caused by plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, stress fractures or other injuries, heel spurs, and flat feet. If you experience numbness or tingling in your lower extremities, this may be due to Morton’s neuroma, sciatica, tarsal tunnel syndrome, diabetes, or peripheral artery disease. To figure out what is causing your foot and ankle pain, it is important to consult with a podiatrist. Providing the podiatrist with a thorough description of the location and type of pain that you are feeling is the first step to recovery.
