Feet hurt?

Feet hurt?
As pedestrians, we all have our fair share of foot troubles from time to time — and, dare I say, most are shoe-related. Thankfully, however, there are experts among us devoted to both caring and providing us with the latest and most relevant information for our feet. In fact, I just came across a particularly informative article by Sally Wadyka of Real Simple. She highlights six reasons why our feet hurt and what to do about it.

Wadyka lists her top six and gives a description of what each condition feels like:

  1. Plantar Fasciitis — A sharp pain in your heel that’s at its worst when you get out of bed.
  2. Ingrown Toenail — A throbbing sensation, usually on the side of a big toe. It might look red and swollen.
  3. Bursitis – A bump, usually on the back of a heel.
  4. Stress fracture — A tender area, often on the front part of the foot, at the second or third metatarsal (the metatarsals are the long bones in the midfoot).
  5. Bunions – Sensitive, protruding bumps, typically at the heads of the big-toe joints.
  6. Neuroma – A shooting pain in the ball of the foot.

If you’re experiencing any the above symptoms or conditions, check out what she has to offer as far as treatments are concerned. If your feet are feeling especially healthy and confident though, maybe it’s time for a new pair of shoes. Then again, if they’re not, how about a pair to cheer them up?
