Your feet are what keep you going through the day. Whether you are standing or walking, your entire weight is borne by the feet. This is the reason why foot pain is a very common problem. Any kind of discomfort in toes, heels, arches and soles is referred to as foot pain. The pain can be for a short time or become an ongoing issue.
It is important to understand that foot pain may not always be a result of an injury. There are many types of foot pain which actually do have nothing to do with feet itself as the origin of the same may lie in the lower back.
In some cases, the cause of foot pain could also be due to conditions causing inflammation involving any of the bones, ligaments or tendons. Arthritis is also a common cause of foot pain. Injury to the nerves of the feet may result in intense burning pain, numbness or tingling (peripheral neuropathy).
Apart from the above-mentioned reasons, there are several other causes of foot pain and related problems which are discussed below:
- Achilles Tendonitis (ankle pain): It is a condition which is caused particularly by running. The pain caused in this condition is experienced at the back of the ankle. In this condition, the Achilles tendon which is located above the back of the heel becomes inflamed, hence causes pain while walking or running.
- Bunions: The enlargement of the toe joint on the inside of each foot is known as a bunion. In this condition, the toe bends inward and forms a bony lump on the outside of the joint. Eventually, this lump grows in size and become bigger making the joint stiff and inflamed. Though it is often hereditary, wearing poor footwear can also be the cause.
- Calluses and Corns: Calluses cause the skin to thicken over a wide area of the foot. It can be caused because of poor footwear or can be inherited. While the corns are a small nucleus of hard skin. It has a hard central core which presses the underlying nerves causing foot pain.
- Heel Fissures: Heel fissures or cracked heels take place due to excessive stress on the skin. People who wear open-heeled shoes or no shoes during summer often suffer from cracked heels. Heel fissures can be painful but are not generally serious.
- Plantar Fasciitis (heel pain): The plantar fascia is a ligament that connects to the heel bone. During less movement of long periods of not it use this ligament contracts and becomes tight. When it is stretched again, like getting up after sleeping, it is still tight and heel pain can occur. It also causes pain when it is irritated or inflamed.
- Ingrown toenails: Ingrown toenails can be extremely painful. The person suffering from ingrown toenails may experience redness, swelling, soreness and throbbing in the toe. Pain becomes severe if the toe is knocked or stood on. Poor nail care is the main reason for this conditions.

Paget's Disease is a terrible affliction that affects millions of people around the world. It is basically a malformation of bone growth, leading to weakness, easily fractured bones, deformations, and lack of function in joints and bones. This can be caused by two things, either genetics or a slow-developing virus that may be present in the body for many years before actually demonstrating any symptoms.
Paget's disease of bone most commonly occurs in the pelvis, skull, spine and legs. The risk of Paget's disease increases with age. Your risk also increases if any family members have the disorder. Complications of Paget's disease can include broken bones, hearing loss and pinched nerves in your spine.
The following factors may play a part in causing Paget's disease:
- Genetic factors: About 10-15 in every 100 people with Paget's disease have relatives who also have the condition. In these cases the condition can be passed on from one generation to the next. But often there's no family history of the condition.
- Lifestyle factors: There's some evidence that poor diet or a bone injury early in life may act as triggers for the later development of Paget's in people who also have genetic risk factors.
Another theory is that Paget's disease may be linked to a viral infection early in life, but some experts dispute this.
Not all people with Paget's disease need to be treated. People who may not need treatment include those who:
- Only have mildly abnormal blood tests
- Have no symptoms and no evidence of active disease
- Paget's disease is commonly treated when:
- Certain bones, such as weight-bearing bones, are involved.
- Bony changes are getting worse quickly (treatment can reduce the risk of fractures).
- Bony deformities are present.
- A person has pain or other symptoms.
- The skull is affected.
- The calcium levels are elevated and causing symptoms.
Drug therapy helps prevent further bone breakdown and formation. Currently, there are several classes of drugs used to treat Paget's disease. These include:
- Bisphosphonates: These drugs are the first treatment, and they help decrease bone remodeling.
- Calcitonin: This hormone is involved in bone metabolism. It may be given as a nasal spray (Miacalcin), or as an injection under the skin (Calcimar or Mithracin).
- Acetaminophen (Tylenol) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may also be given for pain. In severe cases, orthopedic surgery may be needed to correct a deformity.
If you have Paget's disease, your GP may recommend taking regular calcium supplements. Both of these help strengthen your bones.
- Physical Therapy: Some people with Paget's disease find they benefit from physiotherapy or occupational therapy, particularly people with fractures or other types of damage in the bones of their legs or spine.
- Surgery: Surgery is usually only used if Paget's disease causes further problems, such as bone fractures. Surgical options for osteoarthritis include:
- Arthroplasty-where the damaged joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint; the most commonly performed arthroplasties are hip replacements and knee replacements
- Arthrodesis-where the joint is fused into a permanent position
Some quick tips to prevent the onset of Paget's Disease
- Calcium Intake: Increasing the amount of calcium that you are consuming can be a major preventative measure for Paget's disease, or at least a way to minimize the impact of the disease on your body.
- Vitamin D: Vitamin D is the second essential nutrient associated with Paget's disease.
- Sunlight: The second and easier way for humans to increase their Vitamin D levels is through being exposed to sunlight. So, catch some rays to treat Paget's disease.
- Exercise: Light exercise and flexibility practice is very important when it comes to avoiding Paget's disease. Exercise can keep your muscles and joints in shape, which makes it more difficult for Paget's disease to set in.
- Weight Loss: Going on a diet, or making a concerted effort to shed a few extra pounds is a good home remedy for Paget's.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a degenerative disease that progresses over time. It generally affects the fingers, feet, wrists, and ankles. It causes immobility due to inflammation and stiffness as well as severe pain. This is an autoimmune disease where the body mistakenly ends up attacking the joints instead of attacking bacteria and other substances as it normally should. Severe cartilage damage can be caused if this condition is not treated on time, which can make the spacing between the bones even smaller than usual.
Let us find out how one can tackle this condition :
- Rest: While there is still no cure for this condition, one can take a number of measures in order to tackle it. One of the foremost ways of managing this condition is with the help of rest and relaxation. It is important to get plenty of sleep so that you can keep the condition from getting worse. There are a number of relaxation exercises that will help you in sleeping better, especially if you have been having trouble sleeping due to the aches and pains.
- Exercise: Depending on the doctor’s recommendations, you will need to exercise on a regular basis so as to keep the motion in your joints intact for as long as possible. Muscle and joint strengthening exercises include swimming, walking, and even gentle stretching that can help in reducing muscle fatigue. This can make your muscles stronger and increase the range of motions as well.
- Ointments and Lotions: One can turn to gels and lotions which can be topically applied. These can be prescribed by the doctor as well, so that the pain is soothed and temporary relief from pain and stiffness may be experienced. These are also available in the form of sprays. These ointments, gels or lotions usually contain camphor, menthol, capsaicin and salicylates.
- Fish Oil Supplements: Pain and stiffness can be significantly reduced with the help of fish oil, as per many medical studies. Before adding fish oil supplements to your food, you will need to talk to your orthopaedic specialist to find out if it may interfere with any medication that you may be taking for the condition or any other related disorder.
- Plant Oils: Plant oils are also known to contain fatty acids known as gamma linolenic acid, which can give much relief when it comes to pain and stiffness, especially in the morning. One must remember, though, that excessive use of this oil can lead to liver damage. So it is imperative to speak with your doctor or therapist before taking any plant oils.
- Medications: Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can help in containing the pain and inflammation for severe cases.
Hip replacement surgery is a method wherein a defective hip joint is removed and replaced with an artificial hip joint. This procedure is only opted for after all the other treatments have failed to yield the desired effects. Hip replacement surgery removes damaged or diseased parts of a hip joint and replaces them with new, man-made parts. The goals of this surgery are to:
Help the hip joint work better
Improve walking and other movements.
Who Should Have Hip Replacement Surgery?
The most common reason for hip replacement is osteoarthritis in the hip joint. Your doctor might also suggest this surgery if you have:
Osteonecrosis (a disease that causes the bone in joints to die)
Injury of the hip joint
Bone tumors that break down the hip joint.
Your doctor will likely suggest other treatments first, including:
Walking aids, such as a cane
An exercise program
These treatments may decrease hip pain and improve function. Sometimes the pain remains and makes daily activities hard to do. In this case, your doctor may order an x-ray to look at the damage to the joint. If the x ray shows damage and your hip joint hurts, you may need a hip replacement.
Hip replacement surgery is a procedure that can either be performed by traditional means or a minimally invasive procedure. The primary difference between the two procedures is the size of the incision. The procedure begins with the doctor administering local anesthesia, though in certain cases, general anesthesia is also administered.
An incision is then made along the hip and the muscles that are connected to the thigh bone are shifted, so that the hip joint is exposed.
An equipment is then used to remove the ball socket of the joint by cutting the thighbone.
The artificial joint is then fixed to the thighbone and it is allowed to adhere properly.
Once the joint is fixed, the ball of the thighbone is then put in the hip socket.
The fluids from the incision area are then allowed to drain.
The hip muscles are then put in place and the incision is closed.
After the surgery, the recovery stage begins. The period of hospital stay post-surgery usually lasts for 4-6 days. A drainage tube is attached to the bladder to get rid of waste products from the body. Physical therapy begins immediately after the surgery and you will be able to walk after a few days with walking aids. The physical therapy continues for a few months after the surgery.
It is advised to avoid activities that involve twisting your leg for at least half a year. You should also avoid crossing the leg along the mid portion of your body. Your physiotherapist will provide you with exercises that aid to help you recover. Avoid climbing stairs and sit on chairs that have strong back support. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a orthopedist.
