Foot Pain

Chronic foot pain is considered one of the most common foot problems among older people most particularly among women. This particular foot problem is usually due to the high level of stress on foot that is caused by different physical activities that include running, walking, jogging, and even just standing. Very often from wearing high heels for extended periods of time.

These are some of the most common foot issues that usually results in chronic foot pain:

Achilles Tendinitis

This is a common foot problem most particularly in women that can be one of the leading causes of chronic foot pain. This particular kind of issue is characterized by the swelling as well as tenderness of the tendon most particularly on the Achilles tendon, which is the tendon that is connected to the back portion of the heel and extends to the back part of the foot.

One leading cause of Achilles Tendinitis is the extended stretching of the Achilles’ tendon; this is where the name was derived. This particular foot problem is not very serious if the inflammation on the tendon is treated immediately. On the other hand, if the tendon is not treated immediately, it can result in a more serious problem not only in the foot but different external parts of the body. Thus, immediate treatment is highly recommended to prevent the occurrence of different serious diseases.

Heel pain

This also becomes one of the major causes of chronic foot pain if not treated right away. Heel pain usually occurs when the heel of the foot is stressed due to different reasons as well as due to different physical activities that involve the feet.

Big Toe Pain

This is one of the most common foot problems that most people pay no attention to due to its simple causes. However, if this particular foot problem is left untreated, like with the other foot problems, it can cause a more severe health issue not only on the foot. Thus, big toe pain should not be overlooked or ignored. There are numerous possible causes of pain when it comes to big toenail which includes bunions as well as sesamoiditis.
