Fixing Foot Pain

Foot pain is common. If your feet hurt and it is not from an injury you know you have sustained, it is important to try to get to the bottom of what might be going on. Your feet may simply feel sore and tired from everyday life. If this is so, it can help to rest, soak, and massage them. Foot massages can help to reduce tension and pain, as well as improve circulation and stimulate muscles. As part of a good foot care regimen, it is beneficial to examine your feet each day to see if any injuries have developed. Diabetic patients need to be particularly diligent when inspecting their feet as many of those with diabetes suffer from peripheral neuropathy. This condition can make it difficult to feel pain, therefore, sores and cuts may not be unnoticed. If your feet hurt and the pain continues or if you notice inflammation or sores, it is suggested that you visit a podiatrist for an examination and treatment.

Foot pain is a very broad condition that could be caused by one or more ailments. The most common include:

  • Bone Spurs
  • Corns
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Arthritis (such as Gout, Rheumatoid, and Osteoarthritis)
  • Flat Feet
  • Injury (from stress fractures, broken toe, foot, ankle, Achilles tendon ruptures, and sprains)
  • And more


To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.


Treatment depends upon the cause of the foot pain. Whether it is resting, staying off the foot, or having surgery; podiatrists have a number of treatment options available for foot pain.
