Foot Pain

pain radiating from heelAs one of the most common causes of heel pain, foot pain involves inflammation of the thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.

The pain that people with foot pain experience is typically the worst with the first few steps after getting up in the morning. This pain can also be triggered by extended periods of standing or when getting up after sitting. The pain is typically worse after exercise, not during it.

What Are the Risk Factors?

Although foot pain can develop without an apparent cause, some factors can increase your risk of developing this condition:

  • Age. Most people with foot pain are between 40 and 60.
  • Foot mechanics. Those who have flat feet, a high arch, or an abnormal walking pattern can experience foot pain because those issues can affect the way weight is distributed while standing. Added stress can be placed on the foot.
  • Obesity. People who are significantly overweight often suffer from the condition because excess weight puts extra stress on the foot.
  • Certain occupations. Factory workers, nurses, teachers, and others who spend the majority of their working hours walking or standing on hard surfaces can experience damage to the foot.
