Foot pain is not something you can easily ignore, especially if you have a job that requires you to be on your feet all the time. The sooner you can diagnose where your foot pain is coming from and what type of feet you have, the sooner you can find a solution to your pain. Here are different types of feet pain.
High Arch Pain
One type of foot pain is caused by high arches. These are arches that sit higher than the ground. They create pressure on the rearfoot and forefoot because the arch is unable to absorb shock and impact. Feet with high arches tend to be very rigid and can suffer from plantar fasciitis, heel pain syndrome, arch strain, metatarsalgia, calluses, and claw toes.
Flat Feet Pain
Individuals with flat feet have arches that sit very low to the ground. They may suffer from over-pronation, plantar fasciitis, post-tibial tendonitis, heel spurs, medial knee problems, and bunions. Flat feet tend to be imbalanced.
Ball of Foot Pain
This sort of pain encompasses the following: the ball of your feet, your arch or midfoot, or your toes. Ball of foot pain may result from the following: bone abnormalities like an overly long metatarsal bone, thin or shifting or your foot pad’s tissue, or hammertoes.
Heel pain is most often caused by plantar fasciitis, which is sometimes also called heel spur syndrome when a spur is present. Heel pain may also be due to other causes, such as a stress fracture, tendonitis, arthritis, nerve irritation or, rarely, a cyst.
