Several Sources of Foot Pain

Tuesday, 14 December 2021 00:00

Foot pain can have a wide variety of sources. For example, issues such as arthritis, which causes inflammation in the joints, or tendonitis, which causes inflammation to the tendons, can gradually develop over time. Trauma to the foot can cause a painful injury such as a sprain or fracture. Even issues with blood flow to the feet, such as peripheral vascular disease (where there is a constriction of blood flow) or deep vein thrombosis (a blood clot), can result in painful foot conditions. Biomechanical issues like flat feet can also lead to foot pain. Because of the variety of pain that can occur in the feet, patients who are struggling with foot pain should see a podiatrist to help develop a personal treatment plan.  

Foot Pain

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with one of our podiatrists from Cascade Foot & Ankle. Our doctors will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.

Causes

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

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • 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

Diagnosis

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

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.
