Foot pain is the most common complaint among patients who see a podiatrist. Pain in your feet comes in various forms and can affect any area of the foot. When diagnosing the underlying cause of your foot pain, a podiatrist will ask you about your medical history and perform a thorough physical examination. Imaging studies, such as X-rays, may also be ordered to confirm or rule out certain diagnoses.

Describing the location and type of foot pain that you are experiencing is the key to an accurate diagnosis. Pain in the heel is often caused by plantar fasciitis, Sever’s disease, bursitis, Achilles tendonitis, a heel spur, or a stress fracture. Pain in the middle of the foot may be due to an overuse injury, stress fracture, sprains, flat feet, or arthritis. Pain in the front of the foot is frequently the result of a sprained or broken toe, Morton’s neuroma, bunions, hammertoes, or metatarsalgia. Stinging, burning, or numbness may be indicative of damage to one or more nerves in the feet. Stabbing or sharp pain may be caused by an acute injury. Stiffness and a reduction are usually characteristic of a joint problem, such as arthritis.

If you are experiencing any type of foot pain or discomfort, please consult with a podiatrist to get a proper diagnosis and explore treatment options.
