4 Common Causes of Foot Pain

Posted by on Friday, October 26th, 2018

The foot is one of the most complex anatomical structures in the body—comprised of over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments, as well as 33 joints and 26 bones, not to mention a whole network of nerves and blood vessels. These structures come together in all different shapes, sizes, and inclinations. Some biomechanical anomalies you’re born with, while others occur over time due to wear-and-tear or as a result of trauma. These anomalies lead to common causes of foot pain.

Our focus on correcting biomechanics is one of the features that sets The Center for Podiatric Care and Sports Medicine apart from the masses. We’re not looking to simply medicate you and send you on your way. We want to fix what’s hurting you or slowing you down, so you never have to worry about it again. Four of the most common mechanical faults we treat include overpronation, oversupination, poor shock absorption, and limb length discrepancies.
