Foot Pain Needs Immediate Attention

Many people take their feet for granted and do not give them a second thought until they have foot pain. The feet carry the weight of the body, and foot pain may happen from the pressure they endure on a daily basis. It is beneficial to wear shoes that fit correctly, which may prevent uncomfortable foot conditions from developing. The ball of the foot can be affected by an ailment that is known as metatarsalgia, which can cause pain and inflammation. People who enjoy running and jumping activities can be prone to developing this condition, and wearing shoes that have cushioned insoles may help to absorb the shock. One of the most common reasons patients experience heel pain may be from plantar fasciitis. This can happen as a result of an irritated plantar fascia, which is the band of tissue that connects the heel to the toes. Any type of foot pain warrants a visit to the podiatrist, and it is suggested that you contact this type of doctor who can effectively diagnose and treat any foot ailment.

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with one of our podiatrists from The Sun Healthcare & Surgery Group. Our doctors will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.


Foot pain is a very broad condition that could be caused by one or more ailments. The most common include:

  • Injury (from stress fractures, broken toe, foot, ankle, Achilles tendon ruptures, and sprains)
  • And more


To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.
