Uncomfortable Foot Pain

Feet endure a lot of stress, carrying our body weight over countless miles throughout a lifetime. This constant use can lead to various sources of foot pain, making even basic activities like walking painful. A common cause of foot pain includes plantar fasciitis, characterized by sharp heel pain due to inflammation of the tissue connecting the heel to the toes. Bunions, which are bony bumps forming at the base of the big toe, can also cause significant discomfort. Flat feet, where the arches collapse, can lead to pain and fatigue in the feet and legs. Additionally, arthritis can affect the joints in the feet, leading to chronic pain and stiffness. Treatments for foot pain vary depending on the cause but often include rest, compression, and elevation. Orthotic inserts and wearing proper footwear can also provide relief. In more severe cases, medical interventions such as corticosteroid injections or surgery may be necessary. If you are experiencing persistent foot pain, it is suggested that you see a podiatrist for a proper diagnosis and a tailored treatment plan.

Foot Pain

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with one of our podiatrists from Pima Foot and Ankle Surgery. 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:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Bone Spurs
  • Corns
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Arthritis (such as Gout, Rheumatoid, and Osteoarthritis)
  • Flat Feet
  • 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.
