Problems On Top Of Foot

A bunion is a painful swelling that usually occurs at the head of one of the long bones (metatarsal bones) of the big or little toe, which extend from the arch of the foot and connect to the toes. A bunion begins to form when the big or little toe is forced in toward the rest of the toes. This causes the head of the metatarsal bone to jut out and rub against the side of your shoe. The underlying tissue becomes inflamed, and a painful swelling forms. Bone growth may occur at the site of irritation. The toe grows towards the rest of your toes at an increasing angle.

Ingrown Toenails. Ingrown toenails can occur in any toe but are most common in the big toes. They usually develop when tight fitting or narrow shoes put too much pressure on the toenail and force the nail to grow down into the flesh of the toe. Incorrect toenail trimming can also contribute to the risk of developing an ingrown toenail ( see How Is Foot Pain Prevented, in this report) Fungal infections, injuries, abnormalities in the structure of the foot, and repeated pressure to the toenail from high impact aerobic exercise can also produce ingrown toenails.

Another cause of Ball of Foot Pain is over-pronation. Over-pronation (or excess pronation) occurs in a lot of people, especially as they get older. The arches drop and feet and ankles tend to roll inwards. Excessive pronation is a major contributing cause to heel pain and heel spurs, but it also can lead to Metatarsalgia. As the longitidunal arch collapses so does the transverse arch. The transverse arch is the arch that runs across the forefoot and is formed by the 5 metatarsal bones. The bones in the foot drop and the structure of the foot is severely weakened. foot pain relief

The plantar fascia supports the bones of the heels and maintains the arch of the heel. The Toe Corns is a bony projection that leads away from the plantar fascia into the surrounding tissues of the body. More often than not, heel spurs and plantar fasciitis together cause sharp pain in the foot. The severe foot pain experienced by you, when you put your weight on your foot, while taking first step, is because of the heel spur poking into the surrounding living mass of tissues, nerves, tendons and muscles. Your doctor may advise you to take an X-ray of the feet to detect the heel spur.

One of the most important factors of plantar fasciitis is tight calf muscles. Therefore some calf stretching exercises are really important. The best exercise could be, standing facing a wall with the help of your hands on the wall at about your eye level and then put one leg almost a step behind your other leg, keep your back heel flat on the floor. Ensure that this leg remains straight at all times, after that bend the knee of the front leg slowly, lowering your body unless you feel the stretch in the calf of the back leg.

Avoiding foot pain before it begins is the most effective way to prevent expensive surgeries later on. Despite the fact that many people disregard foot pain for weeks, pretending that the pain isn't there or hoping it would just go away are inadequate reactions to the foot pain situation. There are plenty of ways to help your feet stay strong, healthy, and pain-free with only a few changes to your daily routine. Here are a few reasons why metatarsalgia occurs, how to cure foot conditions such as Achilles tendinitis, and how minor changes, for instance using high heel insoles, can help.

Shoes with high heels can create much trouble for your feet. From the narrowing of the toe box (the area surrounding the front of the foot) to the angle of incline, these shoes can do quite a bit of internal damage to feet. First, when narrowing of the feet is forced, as occurs in a high heeled shoe, the mid-foot and toe areas are forced into an unnatural position. The ligaments, tendons and muscles are strained into a much smaller space than what the foot requires. Over time, nerves become compressed, blood flow is restricted to areas of the foot (particularly in the toes) and foot conditions ensue.
