Common Types of Foot Pain
Pain in the heel is one of the most common types of foot pain. It often occurs as the result of a condition known as plantar fasciitis. This condition affects the band of connective tissue that, when in good health, conditions the muscles on the bottom of the foot. The plantar fascia also supports the arch. Patients may also experience heel pain as the result of heel spurs or calcium deposits.
Achilles Tendinitis Foot Pain
Connecting the heel bone to the lower leg, the Achilles tendon is prone to tendinitis just like any other. When it occurs, the pain can be excruciating. This type of foot pain is most common among athletes, dangers and women who wear high-heeled shoes regularly.
Having flat feet is fairly common, and it doesn’t always result in foot pain. However, many people do experience pain or discomfort as the result of arches that never properly formed.
