Common Feet Problems

Achilles tendonitis

Achilles Tendonitis is a form of overuse injury that develops when the Achilles tendon is inflamed. The Achilles tendon connects the calf muscle to the heel bone, and injuries to this area most often occur in athletes, runners, and individuals who only workout occasionally. Like other forms of tendonitis, Achilles tendonitis is considered an overuse injury and is believed to be caused by excessive force on the area or improper exercise technique.


Pain in the Arch of your foot can happen because of a certain quirk in the way you walk or stand. If your feet don’t move in a straight enough line when you walk, for example, this can cause some muscles in your arches to work harder than the others, leading to pain.


A Bunion is a bony bump that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe. It occurs when some of the bones in the front part of your foot move out of place. This causes the tip of your big toe to get pulled toward the smaller toes and forces the joint at the base of your big toe to stick out.

Heel Spurs

The most common causes of Heel Spurs are chronic plantar fasciitis (bottom of the heel spur) and achilles tendonitis (back of the heel spur). A chronic or traumatic heel injury is the most common form of heel spurring caused by a repetitive strain injury to the fascia (fibrous tissue) of the bottom of the foot and heel.

Morton's Neuroma

Morton's Neuroma is a painful condition that affects the ball of your foot, most commonly the area between your third and fourth toes. Morton's neuroma may feel as if you are standing on a pebble in your shoe or on a fold in your sock. Morton's neuroma involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes.
