Morton’s Neuroma consists of a painful condition which includes numbness in the toes, and results from continuous or repeated compression of the nerve between the third and fourth metatarsal bones. Here are the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for relieving this condition.
Heel spurs are calcified tissue near the heel where the tendons in the foot attach. The main heel spur symptoms are sharp pain in the heel on rising and constant throbbing in the foot. These calcified tissues can dig into the inflamed flesh of the foot, causing pain. A common cause of heel spurs is inflammation of the plantar fascia, also known as plantar fasciitis.
Knee and lower leg pain is a common complaint among many people, and can have many different causes. A common cause of leg and knee pain is a biomechanical disorder known as over-pronation.
The condition of your feet may reflect upon your health in general. If you experience foot pain, this can be a sign of other health conditions that are more serious. Some foot ailments can be early indicators of severe medical issues such as arthritis, nerve and circulatory disorders, diabetes, and other related conditions.
Your legs are among the most hard-working parts of your body; they, along with your feet, are responsible for supporting the full weight of your body. The legs have valves that facilitate the flow of blood to the heart and back. If you develop inflammation and you don’t address the problem, you will end up having problems with its valves, with the resulting insufficiency of the veins when the valves of your legs do not function properly. Graduated compression treatment is an effective way to help relieve this problem.
