Types of Footpain and Solutions

Foot pain comes in many different forms and levels of severity, but at some point or another in our lives, we have or will experience it.  For athletes or individuals who spend a lot of time on their feet, foot pain can be debilitating and can severely reduce their quality of life. Some of the primary causes of foot pain are improper footwear which can cause a plethora of issues such as bunions, corns, Morton’s Neuroma, and plantar fasciitis. Luckily, there are a variety of steps you can take on your own to prevent chronic foot pain. These can include strengthening your feet with exercises, wearing proper footwear, and treating injuries as soon as they arise.
