Foot Pain And Discomfort

Many causes of pain in the foot are due to injuries. This is due to fractures, bruises, sprains, and muscle strains of the foot. Usually when fibers tear it is because the ligaments are overstretched. Ligaments are important because if they are too tight or too loose they can cause pain in the foot. There are many examples of this. Achilles tendonitis is a condition when there is injury of the tendon of the back of the heel on the foot. Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the sole of the foot, and bony spurs that come out of the side of the heel make walking very painful.

Achilles Tendinitis. Achilles tendinitis is an inflammation of the tendon that connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. Achilles tendinitis is caused by small tears in the tendon from overuse or injury. It is most common in people who engage in high-impact exercise, particularly jogging, racquetball, and tennis. People at highest risk for this disorder are those with a shortened Achilles tendon, which can be due to an inborn structural abnormality or can be acquired after wearing high heels regularly. Such people tend to roll their feet too far inward when walking and bounce when they walk.

Treatment for Ingrown Toenails. To relieve pain from ingrown toenails, the pressure from the nail can be relieved by wearing sandals or open-toed shoes. Soaking the toe in warm water for five minutes twice a day in a solution of Domeboro or Betadine solutions can be beneficial. Antibiotic ointments may be used; they should be gently applied using a wisp of cotton, which should be worked under the nail, especially around the corners, to lift the nail up and drain the infection. The cotton will also help force the toenail to grow out correctly. The cotton should be changed daily and the antibiotic used consistently. footpain

More often than not small toe pain, may be related to bone fracture or broken bone. You will have to check the alignment of a toe to check, if there are any changes in the alignment. Trauma, caused due to dropping a heavy object on the toes or due to repeated Hammer Toes pressure or stress on the toes and there is misalignment, it is recommended, that a physician be consulted. In case the bone is broken, it is imperative that the bone is set in its place, else it can impede the bone's ability to heal properly.

If you are experiencing this foot pain at an alarming regularity, you need to take some curative measures. These remedies can be adopted at home or at a clinic as well. It really depends on the severity and the frequency of the pain. Some home remedies may provide you instant relief but do nothing in the long run, whereas, some remedies suggested or provided by a doctor will cure the problem in the long run, but do nothing to relieve you of temporary pain. As a result, you must adopt a plan that envelops both these forms of remedies, and carry out a suitable plan of physiotherapy for yourself.

There are also many running and sports shoes on the market and quite often people choose the wrong style for their foot type. It is always a good idea to get your shoes fitted correctly and most professional sports stores are able to do this for you. A more serious cause of side of foot pain can be arthritis or even diabetes. There are also infections that can cause side of food pain such as Septic arthritis, osteomyelitis or cellulitis. This is why you should seek medical attention if your pain gets significantly worse doesn't go away.

Add a tablespoon of Epsom salt and a few drops of peppermint essential oil. The warm water will help in soothing achy feet muscles and it will relax and rejuvenate you.
