Due to a sedentary lifestyle and lack of exercise, sore feet have become a common problem. Your feet bear the weight of your entire body while walking, standing, and to help you get from one place to another. Foot pain or sore feet as it is commonly called can be any kind of pain or discomfort in one or more areas of the foot such as your toes, heels, arches, or even soles. The pain could be mild or severe depending on the seriousness of the problem. Sometimes the problem can be temporary or it could become an ongoing issue.
There are a variety of reasons why people suffer from foot pain. It could include wearing shoes that don’t fit properly and are too tight, wearing high-heeled shoes for a long time, or it could even be a medical issue. Wearing high-heeled shoes can put a great deal of pressure on the toes which could become a serious medical condition. No matter the cause, sore feet always cause pain and can become an extremely uncomfortable and unbearable situation for many of us.
Various medical conditions can be associated with foot pain. Our feet are susceptible to pain that occurs due to arthritis. Arthritis can affect any of the 33 joints in the foot. Another common medical problem associated with foot pain is Diabetes Mellitus. This illness can cause complications and serious disorders of the feet. People who suffer from diabetes are more prone to problems like nerve damage in the feet, clogged arteries in the legs, foot ulcers, sores, etc. Your chances of foot pain increase manifold if you are obese, are pregnant, or have a foot injury like a sprain or a fracture.
However, foot pain should not give you sleepless nights. Almost all types of sore feet can be corrected in a variety of ways including physiotherapy, diet, lifestyle changes, etc. Physiotherapy, however, plays a very important role in the treatment of sore feet. It is the science of good health and wellbeing that helps people in recovering from illnesses, injuries, or disabilities. It helps in restoring the complete movement and function when somebody is affected by an injury or a disability.
