Causes of Foot Pain
There are several common causes of foot pain, which include:
Nerve Compression: Also known as a trapped nerve, this condition is caused by pressure on a nerve in the foot. It can cause numbness and muscle weakness.
Metatarsal Stress Fracture: The long bones in the foot that connect the ankle to toes are metatarsal bones. These bones can fracture due to stress or repeated injury.
Extensor Tendonitis: This condition is characterized by a large bump along the tendon, causing pain on the top of the foot.
Neuroma: A neuroma is a growth of nerve tissue that causes pain, tingling, or numbness between toes and in the ball of the foot.
Plantar Fasciitis: Characterized by heel pain, this condition is caused by strain or injury to ligaments in the foot.
