No matter how young you are, as soon as you have miscalculated a step or two then your foot pain walking problems will surely present themselves. There are also times when severe pain, especially at the ankle joint, is brought about by wearing impossibly high heels for a considerable period. The pain you are experiencing is not focused on one part of the foot since the foot has several ligaments, muscles, tendons and joints that once you have injured one element, the entire foot will feel pain.

Womens heels can also increase the tension in the medial longitudinal arch and concentrate abnormal impact to the ankle and heel. Arch and heel pain can be debilitating after a full day of in high heels. The narrow, toe box common to most high-heel shoes often deforms the forefoot and causes neuromas between the third and fourth toes, and halux valgus and hallux rigidus to the big toe.

These chemical connections form as we go through experience. Try to move your right Halux Valgus, and only your right Halux Valgus. Can you do it? Most likely you cannot move your right Halux Valgus without moving the adjacent toes. This is because your mind has mapped those areas of your feet together. Through repetition of walking your mind has associated your toes as one entity and connected the neurons that control your toes together.

To relieve the pressure and pain you can change your footwear to new soft shoes that are wider and give more room in the toe box area. In more severe cases like when the hammer toe becomes more rigid, surgery is required to correct the deformity. Your Podiatrist can advise on toe exercises that can be done at home, like stretching and strengthening the muscles. Hammer toes never get better without intervention. Orthoses also help to re-align and re-balance the feet.

There are several different styles of shoe stretchers available. Some stretch width, others length and some stretch both width and length. If you need to stretch your shoes in both directions you will want to look for a two-way shoe stretcher.

Plantar fasciitis is caused when there is strain placed on the ligament. Enough strain can eventually lead to small tears. Tearing can cause significant pain and swelling. There are several reasons for this to happen: you have high arches or flat feet, you stand for very long periods of time on hard surfaces, you have excessive pronation (feet roll forward when you walk), you are overweight, you do not wear proper fitting shoes, or you have tight Achilles tendons. The only real symptom is pain when walking. You will notice that it hurts when you take the first few steps in the morning or after sitting for a long time. The pain may dissipate after a few steps, but it will eventually return as the day progresses. However, if you tend to have Foot Pain at night, this could be tarsal tunnel syndrome.

Firstly, you should make sure the size of the shoes is suitable for your feet. When you buy shoes, you should not only pay attention to the styles. More often, women will be more likely to be attracted by the fashionable designs of the shoes. However, you should check your size first and find the one that is fit for your own size rather than buying shoes of wrong size. And you should check your size often because it usually changes as you age. And the right foot and left foot often have different sizes.

Unfortunately, a lot of the things that go wrong with your feet either require surgery or it is so little that nothing can be done and it just has to heal on its own. Some things can be prevented, but other things just happen some times. You walk around every day all day and there is a lot of room for something to go wrong. If you play sports, it is even easier to get hurt. Being careful will prevent a lot of issues but if problems occur and sometimes they just do, going to the doctor would be the best bet even if you think it is just something small. It could be something more serious that needs attention.
