Heel pain: prevention, causes, and treatment
Our free e-book will tell you exactly how to care for your feet in order to treat or prevent heel pain, and when you should consider symptoms severe enough to schedule an appointment with your podiatrist.
Most Americans suffer from foot problems
How important is foot health to you compared to eye health, nutrition, and exercise? How often do you experience foot pain? Have you been to a podiatrist? These are just a few of the questions asked in an American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) survey carried out earlier this year. Of particular interest in the survey results is the fact that more than 75 percent of Americans suffer from foot pain, but only one-third would have sought care from a podiatrist.
Ouch, that hurts! You take a step and suddenly feel a “pinched nerve” in your foot between your toes. Or, perhaps you’re experiencing swelling in the same area, numbness or tingling in the ball of the foot, or pain when you place weight on the ball of the foot. These are all common symptoms of a neuroma, or a nerve tumor.
Thankfully, neuromas are benign, despite their painful and annoying symptoms.
