Causes of Chronic Foot Pain

Tuesday, 18 June 2024 00:00

Chronic foot pain is more than just a nuisance, It can significantly impact your daily life and mobility. Trauma, whether from a sudden injury or repetitive strain, can lead to a variety of foot issues including sprains, strains, and stress fractures. Overuse injuries, common among athletes and those with physically demanding jobs, can result in conditions like Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. Biomechanical factors, such as improper footwear or structural misalignment, can also contribute to chronic foot pain by causing conditions like bunions, corns, and neuromas. Underlying medical conditions, such as diabetes, gout, and peripheral neuropathy, can result in foot pain and increase the risk of complications. Additionally, infections like athlete's foot or ingrown toenails can cause persistent discomfort if not properly treated. If chronic foot pain is limiting your mobility and interfering with daily activities, it is suggested that you make an appointment with a podiatrist for an exam and treatment.
