Foot Injuries Q & A

What causes foot injuries?

 

A foot injury refers to damage to any part of the foot, including the heel, ankle, arches, and toes. The foot is a complex system of bones, joints, tendons, muscles, and ligaments. When any part of this system is injured, it can have a profound effect on the whole body.

Overuse or trauma causes most foot injuries resulting in inflammation, pain, nerve damage, and inability to bear weight or walk normally. Causes of overuse or injury include:

  • Sports injuries
  • Crushing injuries
  • Objects falling on the foot
  • Repetitive motions with job
  • Poor body mechanics
  • Obesity
  • Poor fitting shoes

Foot injuries can cause serious complications beyond the foot because an abnormal walk can impact the knees, legs, hips, and low back. When you have a foot injury, it is important that you receive expert diagnosis and treatment to avoid significant long-term problems.
