Causes of foot compaints
Foot complaints can have various causes. Therefore, always look for the underlying cause before taking concrete action.
Pain in the feet due to sports
Foot complaints can arise during sports. Running can cause complaints to the feet, for example, because you perform the same movement for a long time. In addition, exerting explosive force on the feet during a short sprint is a possible cause of pain in the feet.
Foot complaints due to shoes It
is often stated that shoes are a source of foot complaints. Of course there are shoes that are not good for your feet. In fact, you often already sense this yourself. But if a “regular” shoe hurts you, there is usually a problem in the foot itself. By solving that cause, you can use the shoe normally again. So don’t throw them away immediately, but come by first to assess that.
Pain in the feet in combination with diabetes
Do you have diabetes? Then that could be a cause of your foot complaints. Consider, for example, wounds or nerve complaints of the feet. By combining good control with good care of the feet by a pedicure, you can prevent a lot of suffering. At VoetPortaal we have a wide network of medical pedicures with which we work together.
The development of foot complaints is often the sum of several factors, in which posture, gait and any joint blockages play a role in the development of specific complaints.
- Heel pain and heel spur
- Lump on the heel bone
- Pain under the forefoot
- Big toe tilt
- Stiffening of the big toe joint
- Ledderhose disease
- Morton’s neuralgia
- Charcot foot
