Some of the most common foot pains include:
- Plantar fasciitis: an inflammation of the thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot, causing heel pain and tenderness.
- Heel spurs: small bony growths on the heel bone that can cause pain and inflammation.
- Achilles tendinitis: an inflammation of the tendon that runs along the back of the ankle, causing pain and stiffness in the heel and ankle.
- Bunions: a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of the big toe, causing pain and discomfort.
- Hammertoes: a condition in which the toes become bent or curled, causing pain and difficulty walking.
- Blisters: caused by friction and pressure, blisters are small fluid-filled pockets that can be painful and make it hard to walk
