Does your feet’s sole hurt? It may be challenging to get out of bed and out of bed every morning if you have a condition that causes pain in your heel or arch.
Because of the large number of little bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons that comprise the foot, isolating the source of the issue is not simple to perform on your own. The problem is not something that will just go away overnight or even gradually without the appropriate treatment; instead, it is something that requires the specialised knowledge of a podiatrist to be able to examine your feet for it. If this describes you, acting on the situation right now is in your best interest.
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of foot and heel pain in adults, and when people come in asking us why the bottom of their foot hurts, we often find that they are waking up with this condition, which is one of the most common causes.
Causes of Plantar Fasciitis
The inflammation of the tissue that runs down the bottom of the foot is caused by the disease known as plantar fasciitis. This condition can produce significant pain below the heel bone or arch. The pain is typically described as similar to a stone bruise or feeling like stepping on a stone or a bony heel spur. Many have reported that the pain is typically at its worst for the first few steps in the morning.
Relieving Foot Pain
Before attempting to alleviate the pain in your foot, it is essential to determine whether or not any underlying issues might be the source of your suffering. These evaluations can be carried out by a podiatrist who is suitably qualified. It may be beneficial to stretch your foot muscles, massage your foot, apply ice to the region, or bathe your feet in a footbath made of soapy, lukewarm water. For short-term comfort, it may also be good to apply ice to the area.
Treating Pain at the Sole of your Feet
If you do not get treatment for your heel or arch pain, it will last for a very long time. Several different conditions can bring on pain in the bottom of your foot. However, it is most frequently brought on by either excessive usage or a lack of support brought on by wearing footwear that is not appropriate.
It is imperative to seek the assistance of a podiatrist for both the diagnosis and treatment of the ailment. After determining the root of the problem, we will devise an individualised treatment strategy to specifically address your foot pain and bring it under control.
It might be as easy as advising that you switch your shoes or do some exercises to enhance the biomechanics of your foot. Another option for providing proper support for your unique foot problem is to have foot orthotics that are designed just for you.
Shoes That Can Cause Foot Pain
When worn for extended periods, shoes with inadequate arch support can result in substantial discomfort felt in the foot. When you wear shoes with no arch support, such as flip-flops, the muscles in your feet are forced to work harder to compensate for the lack of stability in the arch. This will wear down your feet and cause them to hurt in the long run.
