Foot pain treatment

The two most common causes of foot pain are plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis. A ligament sprain, heel spurs and bunions can also cause foot pain. There are many ligaments involved in the foot and excessive stretching or bending of the foot can cause a sprain of the ankle ligaments.

A heel spur is an excessive growth of a bone at the base of the heel (on the calcaneal bone) or on the side of the heel, usually secondary to chronic plantar fasciitis and constant excessive pull of the muscle and the fascia along the foot.

Bunions are classified by a lateral deviation of the big toe, and creating a look of an enlarged bone where the toe meets the foot. This is caused by long term use of improper foot wear, such as tight fitted high heels.

Bunions are caused by extra pressure forced onto the side of the big toe, pushing it inwards towards the other toes. It can cause pain when walking, skin irritation or redness, and shifts the toe towards the second toe.
