Neuropathy

Foot pain can originate from many things. Since the feet take us where we want to go and carry their fair share of the weight of your entire body, foot pain and foot problems can be common among people. There are several conditions that may be causing your foot pain. We will break down the different types of pain and the conditions they may be stemming from. These pains include:

  • Heel pain
  • Ball of Foot Pain
  • Arch Pain
  • Toe Pain
  • Pain on the Foot’s Outer Edge

These chronic pain conditions in the foot are caused by various irritations or injuries in the foot tissue, bone or muscle problems. These include:

  • Plantar Fasciitis – Typically causes heel pain
  • Heel spurs – Abnormal growths on the bottom of your heel.
  • Stone Bruise – A deep bruise on the heel or ball of the foot.
  • Heel fracture – When the heel bone breaks or shatters
  • Metatarsalgia – Inflammation in the ball of your foot.
  • Sesamoiditis – Inflammation of the tendons surround the big toe.
  • Gout – A form of arthritis in the toes and feet.
  • Bunion – A bulge on the edge of the foot.
  • Hammer toe – when your 2nd, 3rd or 4th toe bend at the middle joint.

Neuropathy

Another foot issue that our clinic deals with is neuropathy. Neuropathy is a result of the nerves that carry messages between the brain and the spinal cord are damaged or deceased. Neuropathy is most common in individuals over the age of 55 and is also a common symptom of diabetes. This causes a tingling or burning pain in your extremities. Neuropathy of the feet is a common condition of diabetes.
