As the foundation for your lower body’s movement, the foot and its numerous bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles can be a source of significant joint pain.
Often associated with inappropriate footwear or poor alignment, pain in the foot is most commonly associated with trauma, such as a fracture, disease, such as osteoarthritis, deformities, such as a bunion, or stress injuries.
If you are experiencing any of the following foot pain symptoms, it may be time to visit with a foot specialist:
- Numbness in the foot
- Pain in the heel, ball, or arch of the foot
- Inability to perform daily activities without foot pain
- Change in sensation or color of skin or toenail
- Swelling or tenderness
- If the afflicted area looks deformed or if you have lost function
A consultation with a foot doctor is the best way to differentiate between a severe foot condition and minor foot injury.
