Whether a recent injury is causing you problems, or other underlying conditions are causing pain in your feet, you should never underestimate the impact that even the most common foot-related issues can have on your overall quality of life.
Here, we talk you through the various factors that could be causing your discomfort and discuss the many benefits of wearing OrthoSole’s innovative insoles for foot pain relief.
What could be causing your foot pain?
It’s a great question – and one that may not have a straightforward answer! Foot pain can arise because of:
- Injury or to one or more of the muscles, joints or tendons in the foot
- Broken bones
- Stress fractures
- Flat feet / fallen arches
- Bursitis – otherwise referred to as joint inflammation
- Ingrown toenails
- Plantar fasciitis
- Achilles tendonitis
- Heel spurs
- Nerve damage
- Rheumatoid arthritis
A lack of support to the arches of your feet – and the metatarsal bones that run through them – could also be to blame. Unsupported arches will often cause pain and soreness in the ball of the foot.
How can you get rid of foot pain?
If you’re suffering from foot pain – and particularly pain in the balls of your feet – the sensible thing to do is to stop taking part in any physical activity, dose up on painkillers and let the affected area get some much-needed rest.
However, these measures are only practical in the short term. If you are suffering with chronic foot pain, you’ll need to explore different treatment methods in order to reduce your discomfort and get yourself fully mobile again.
Soaking your feet in hot water can help, as can certain stretches and strengthening exercises. For immediate and long-lasting results, however, we would always recommend investing in a pair of OrthoSole insoles, which are specifically designed to help eliminate foot pain simply through being worn on an everyday basis.
