Foot pain - the complexities involved

Foot pain is a very common issue that many people face all over the world. As a matter of fact, statistics reveal that about 75% people in their aging years experience foot pain at some point or other. A superficial pain may not be too much of a concern and many people may even ignore it associating it to their work stress or tiredness. However, foot pain can also be at times quite recurring and unbearable leaving you incapable to carry on with your regular course of life. This is when your foot pain will require special care and attention. Experts advice to keep active during ageing years in order to avoid health issues but there are things like foot pain that can cause you to lose your active physical state. 

In order to deal with the extremely exuberating foot pain, it is important to understand what causes it. The fact is that our feet take a lot of physical strain every single day. The feet carry the weight of the body and also act as shock absorbers when we walk. Because of this everyday stress, there is a good chance that you may face some foot pain too. Other than this main cause, there are certain lifestyle related factors too that can cause foot pain as mentioned hereunder -

1. Shoe misfit: Ill fitting shoes can be responsible for foot pain to a large extent. It is important to wear shoes or any kind of footwear that is comfortable and does not cause any inconvenience to your feet. Use of high heels is regarded as a leading cause of foot pain in women.

2. Exercising and work-outs: Putting extra stress on your feet will definitely cause foot pain. Running or exercising can do that and so can other physically challenging activities like aerobics, athletics, etc. This is the reason why foot pain is found to common in athletes.
