Foot Pain

The human foot is a complex structure containing 26 bones, 33 joints and more than a hundred muscles, tendons and ligaments. With so many potential areas for injury, foot pain is a prevalent problem among athletes as well as the general population. A patient may experience pain in the heel, arch, ball, top, side or even between the toes and should pay attention to not only the location but the severity of the pain. Sometimes the cause of the pain is easy to identify because you remember the incident that started it. At other times, the pain may come on suddenly with no apparent cause. In either case, it is important to have your pain properly diagnosed and treated.

Common Causes of Foot Pain

Do not delay treatment for Foot Pain

While walking, running or standing, your foot needs to be rigid and stable for support and yet a split second later it needs to be flexible from heel to toe so you can push off and move forward. In between the rigid and flexible states, the biomechanics of the foot can quickly and easily go wrong, and unwanted pressure can produce poor movement or positioning in your foot and cause pain. The pain can be disguised and at times your foot may even hurt in places that are not close to the actual cause of the problem. For these reasons, it is important to see your Eden Prairie or Eagan sports chiropractor and get it treated before it turns into a larger problem.
