Foot Pain

 

Foot pain is a common problem caused by a wide range of possible causes that usually fall under the following categories:

 
  • Acquired from improper footwear, stress from activities, or small mechanical changes within the foot.
  • Arthritic foot problems, which typically could involve several joints within the foot.
  • Congenital foot problems, which are generally inherited.
  • Infectious foot problems, which are caused by bacterial, viral, or fungal problems.
  • Neoplastic disorders (tumours), which are the result of abnormal growth of tissue anywhere on the foot and may be benign or malignant.
  • Traumatic foot problems, which are associated with foot and ankle injuries, such as fractures and sprains.
  • Ageing feet, which naturally develop with age as the joints experience wear and tear, the skin starts to become thin and loses its elasticity, as well as being dry and much more fragile.

Leading foot problems are:

  • Bunions
  • Plantar fasciitis (heel pain)
  • Metatarsalgia
  • Morton's neuroma
  • Blisters, corns and calluses
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Arthritis
  • Gout
  • Verrucas
  • Neuromas
  • Sesamoiditis
  • sprains and strains
  • broken or cracked bones (fractures)
  • Diabetic foot problems

Podiatrist

 

A podiatrist is a health care professional who has been trained to prevent, diagnose, treat and rehabilitate abnormal conditions of the feet and the lower limbs. Podiatrists are required to be registered under the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
 

It is generally advised to see a podiatrist when you have painful feet, thickened or discoloured toenails, cracks or cuts in the skin, growths such as warts, or any other foot-related problem.
 

Tailor-made insoles, padding and arch support to relieve arch or heel pain can also be prescribed by a podiatrist.
 

Even when your feet are generally in good health, you might want to consider having a single session of podiatry to have the hard skin on your feet removed, toenails clipped, to find out if you’re wearing the right shoes (take your shoes with you for specific advice on footwear) or just to check that you’re looking after your feet properly.

Orthotics

 

Due to hard, flat unnatural surfaces we walk on daily, it is estimated that the majority of the population over pronates. This often disrupts the normal knee function and hip alignment and increases forces on the lower back muscles leading to pain.

 

The use of orthotics can assist in reducing knee and lower back pain by attempting to maintain the foot in the ideal or natural position.

 

Types of Feet

Pronated

Flat Foot

Supinated

Foot Health

 
  • Experiencing continuous pain in your feet is not normal. Do not ignore foot pain. If you experience any type of persistent pain in the foot, ankle or knee, please contact our clinic.
  • Inspect your feet regularly using a mirror if you cannot reach your feet. Document any changes in colour and temperature of your feet. Look for thick or discoloured nails as this may be a sign of developing fungal infections or damaged nail.
  • Any growth on the foot is not considered normal. Check for cracks or cuts in the skin. Peeling or scaling on the soles of feet may indicate Athlete's Foot.
  • Wash your feet regularly, especially between the toes, be sure to dry them completely and moisturised your feet (not in between toes).
  • Trim toenails straight across, but not too short. Be careful not to cut nails in corners or on the sides; this can lead to ingrown toenails.
  • Persons with diabetes, poor circulation, or heart problems should not treat their own feet, because they are more prone to infection.
  • Make sure that your shoes fit properly. Purchase new shoes later in the day when feet tend to be at their largest, and replace worn out shoes as soon as possible.
  • Select and wear the right shoe for each sport or activity that you are engaged in (e.g., running shoes for running).
  • Do not wear the same pair of shoes and socks every day.
  • Avoid walking barefooted. Your feet will be more prone to injury and infection. During hot seasons when wearing open shoes use sun screen lotion on your feet.
  • Be careful when using home remedies for foot ailments. Self-treatment may turn a minor problem into a more serious one.
  • If you are a diabetic, please contact our clinic and schedule a check-up at least once a year.
