Types of foot pain

Types of foot pain

With more than 26 bones, 33 joints, and five ligaments, many structures in the foot can be injured. When these structures become injured or overstressed, it can cause pain, and that can limit your ability to walk. Pain can strike in different areas of your foot, and certain conditions are commonly associated with these areas. They include:

  • Bottom of the foot: Plantar fasciitis

  • Arch of the foot: Posterior tibial tendonitis, tarsal tunnel syndrome

  • Ball of the foot/toes: Bunions, hammertoe, metatarsalgia, turf toe, Morton's neuroma
