Heel pain aka “Plantar fasciitis”

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common foot conditions which results in pain in the heel and arch. Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the long band of tissue that runs along the length of the foot. It results in pain in the morning and after and after a period of rest.

Hammer toes

A foot condition in which the toe has an abnormal bend in the middle joint. A hammer toe is usually caused by wearing ill-fitting shoes. It often affects the toe next to the big toe. The affected toe may be painful or hard to move and may develop corns or calluses. Treatment can include wearing roomier shoes and using shoe inserts or pads. Surgery might be required.


A neuroma is a swollen, inflamed nerve in the foot. A neuroma causes a “burning” sharp pain in the forefoot and digits. It is usually located in the bones at the ball of the foot. The nerves between the 3rd and 4th toes, and 2nd and 3rd toes are commonly affected. Podiatrists commonly treat this condition with footwear advice, orthotics, and padding.

Foot and ankle instability

Ankle instability is a debilitating condition incorporating recurrent sprains, persistent pain and repeated instances of giving way. When left untreated, this condition decreases one’s level of function and quality of life with the potential to lead to arthritis and chronic pain.

Arch pain

Arch pain is often experienced in feet that excessively roll in (pronate). Arch pain can often be associated with bunions and hammer toes.


Arthritis in feet symptoms is very common, especially as you get older. It can cause pain and stiffness in any joint in the body, and is common in the small joints of the foot and ankle.


The most common sign of gout is a night time attack of swelling, tenderness, redness, and sharp pain in your big toe. You can also get gout attacks in your foot, ankle, or knees, or other joints. It is caused by a build up of uric acid and can harm your joints.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune and can affect any one of the 30 joints of the foot and ankle, making it very difficult to walk. Podiatrists can help people with rheumatoid arthritis by keeping patients comfortable and mobile.

Achilles pain

Achilles tendonitis (pain) occurs when the tendon that attaches the calf muscles to the heel becomes painful or inflamed due to overuse injuries. Achilles tendinopathy is commonly caused from changes in physical activity. The biomechanics of the lower limbs need to be assessed in this condition to assess foot motion with respect to the lower limb.
