painful feet

Your feet are a very important part of your body and they reflect upon your state of health and well being. Painful feet may be caused due to a variety of conditions and injuries.

Some of the most common causes of painful feet include trauma, disease or a combination of both. A trauma is the result of forces outside the body can directly impact the body or force it into a position where a single or combination of forces can lead to damaging the structures of your body.

For instance poor bio-mechanical alignment may lead to painful feet. Wearing high heels or shoes that are too tight may also cause pain to the bones and balls of the feet. Tying your shoe laces too tight can also cause a lot of pain on top of your feet.

Injuries like muscle strains, fractures, ligament sprains or bruises occur quite suddenly and are a result of a single or combination of stresses on your feet. Injuries to the bones and joints of your feet can be caused due to a single blow or a twist, thereby resulting in stress fracture. Likewise when some one steps on your feet, it may not just result in a bruise but may actually cause a lot of damage to the muscles and ligaments of your feet. Similarly, bacteria, fungi or viruses are some of the reasons for painful feet. Even diseases like diabetes, gout and Hansen’s disease can affect your feet. In cases of peripheral neuropathy there may be numbness and burning sensation in the feet.

Given below are a few tips that will take care of your painful feet and keep them healthy.

One of the first things that you can do is wash your feet every day. Ensure that you wash between your toes and under the nails. Clean feet help in preventing any new conditions and helps solve the problem of painful feet. Likewise, after a bath, make sure that you dry your feet between the toes.

Remember, damp feet are a breeding ground for bacteria. If you are engaged in any sporting activity, you will find that changing rooms can be effective breeding grounds for feet related problems.

Check your feet regularly for any corns, blisters, calluses, and other similar problems and get them treated promptly. Similarly, excess weight can add more pressure to your already overstressed feet. So, consider reducing a few pounds of your weight. Finally, get your feet massaged regularly in order to relax and de-stress your feet.

    Another common cause is the flattening of the arch over time due to inadequate footwear support. This results in all sorts of conditions, including: plantar fasciitis, Bunion, Morton’s Neuralgia…

    A solution is a “full-contact” custom flexible foot orthotic designed from an accurate 3D impression of your corrected foot posture and calibrated to flex specific to your forefoot flexibility and weight.
