Pain on the Bottom of the Foot

The bottom of the foot and the arch are common places to have foot pain. This can happen for a variety of reasons, including wearing shoes that do not fit correctly and standing on hard or uneven surfaces for most of the day. It is important to manage the pain by implementing specific techniques. Some people find relief by wearing insoles that can provide cushioning, in addition to wearing shoes that have ample support. Obesity may be a cause for foot pain to develop, and losing weight may help to reduce pressure on the soles of the feet. Performing gentle stretches may help to relieve foot pain, which may benefit the overall body. It is wise to temporarily stop any type of activity that may have caused the pain, in addition to frequently elevating the affected foot. If you have foot pain for any reason, it is suggested that you schedule an appointment with a podiatrist who can determine the cause and offer you the correct treatment options.
