The soles of our feet must withstand all the pressure placed upon them during our lifetime by walking, running and standing. According to Foot Pain Info, there are 26 bones and associated ligaments in the foot, structured to allow the foot to function as a shock absorber and a lever. Foot pain can affect any part of the foot. Pain on the sole of the foot can be felt under the heel, in the middle of the foot under the arch and under the ball of the foot due to a variety of conditions. Plantar Fasciitis and Heels Spurs

Hammertoes. A hammertoe is a permanent deformity of the toe joint in which the toe bends up slightly and then curls downward, resting on its tip; when forced into this position long enough, the tendons of the toe contract and it stiffens into a hammer- or claw-like shape. Hammertoe is most common in the second toe but may develop in any or all of the three middle toes if they are pushed forward and do not have enough room to lie flat in the shoe. The risk is increased when the toes are already crowded by the pressure of a bunion.

Most (young) women like to look stylish and wear a shoe with a medium to high heel. The problem with high heels is that your bodyweight is not evenly distributed across the underside of the foot, but rather 80% of your weight pushes down on only one area of the foot, the forefoot area. i.e. the balls of your feet. This is totally unnatural and before long the entire forefoot structure collapses, leading to constant pressure and friction in the ball of the foot. The body reacts and builds up thick layers of callous in this area which in turn leads to a burning sensation under the foot.foot painting

If the foot pain is caused by plantar fasciitis, it may respond to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, daily application of ice to the heel, and use of orthotics to better support the heel and arch. Although calf stretching exercises are often recommended, there's little evidence that they actually help. Injection Foot Conditions of corticosteroids into the heel may give some temporary relief, but can lead to complications such as rupture of the plantar fascia. A newer treatment called extracorporeal shock wave therapy that uses sound waves has been approved for treatment of plantar fasciitis, but is usually reserved for resistant cases.

First off, get shoes that fit better. Very likely, the shoes you have are either too short, too narrow or both. Take some of the pressure off the corn by putting a doughnut pad on it. You can find doughnut pads at most drugstores; they're small pads with a hole in them that eases friction when fitted over the corn. With the right shoes and the pressure relieved, the corn will disappear in a few weeks. You can speed this process by giving the corn a few strokes with an emery board a couple times a week.

There are also many running and sports shoes on the market and quite often people choose the wrong style for their foot type. It is always a good idea to get your shoes fitted correctly and most professional sports stores are able to do this for you. A more serious cause of side of foot pain can be arthritis or even diabetes. There are also infections that can cause side of food pain such as Septic arthritis, osteomyelitis or cellulitis. This is why you should seek medical attention if your pain gets significantly worse doesn't go away.

Foot pain can be divided into three main categories. The most common one is the Biomechanical Pain which is caused by functionality disorder in the foot. In this type of pain, all increased activities may cause the foot condition to worsen over time. It may take other symptoms such as knee pain or body misalignment. There are many reasons why biomechanical pain happens such as foot misalignment. Foot misalignment is caused by excessive weights, which can put a lot of pressure on the foot; especially the heels. Wearing tight shoes or high heels is not recommended for those who suffer from foot pain.
