Definition of Foot pain

Foot pain: Foot pain is the sensation of discomfort in the foot arising from disorders or injury to any of the structures in the foot including bones, nerves, muscles, blood vessels, or connective tissue. There are numerous and varied causes for foot pain, since the foot is an extremely complex anatomic structure made up of 26 bones and 33 joints along with 19 muscles and 107 ligaments.

Causes of Foot pain originating in the foot include broken bones, calcaneal spurs, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, and infections. Systemic conditions and diseases, such as peripheral neuropathy resulting from diabetes and peripheral vascular disease (atherosclerosis) can sometimes result in foot pain.
