Between 75% to 80% adults across the globe experience pain in their feet. Problems of the feet and ankles have grappled today’s population. Pain can be anywhere across the foot like the heels, toes, instep, arch or the bottom of the foot. While arthritis is a major cause of foot pain, it can be caused by injuries as well. Gout is another contributor for pain especially in the toes. Excessive pressure on the foot can cause pain like in case of too much walking, obesity and poorly fitted shoes. Even a disproportionate distribution of weight during any physical activity or faulty posture for prolonged period of time can cause pressure on the feet and trigger pain.
Most foot pain can be treated at home. Uneven distribution of bodyweight can be addressed by correcting gait and distributing bodyweight evenly along heels, foot and toes. Avoiding high heels, using soft shoes, ankle guards and sufficient rest helps in this regard. For injury triggered pain, doctors often prescribe pain killers which are better avoided. Instead, ice and rest are recommended by our in-house physicians. For those with arthritis, foot pain is associated with softening of bones. They must address their problem of vitamin deficiency by consuming food rich in vitamin D and K2.
