podiatrist near rosenbergRunning and jogging are both excellent forms of exercise. However, some people (both professionals and beginners!) may experience foot pain during or after their run. It’s common if you overuse your muscles or jump right into an intense exercise regimen. Our podiatrist near Rosenberg explains more here.

Most Common Foot Conditions

Some of the most common painful foot conditions associated with running include:

Plantar Fasciitis – the band of muscle that connects the toes to the heel becomes inflamed.

Metatarsalgia – extra pressure on the metatarsal bones (bones leading up to the toes) causes the sensation of pebbles in your shoes or bruising on the balls of your feet.

Fat Pad Syndrome – wearing down of the fat pad. The fat pad acts as a cushion to your heel and helps absorb shock. The pain is similar to plantar fasciitis but is in the middle of the heel.

Stress Fracture – a fracture in the bone caused by high-impact activities like running.

These conditions have different causes. Our podiatrist will diagnose and treat the root of your problem to get you back to your active lifestyle! 

What Causes Foot Pain?

Common causes and risk factors for developing painful foot conditions include:

  • Increased activity
  • Over-pronation (flat feet)
  • Poor core endurance or hip strength
  • Excessive running
  • Improper footwear

Treating Your Foot Pain

Thankfully, there are some easy steps and precautions you can take to prevent running-related foot pain! Make sure that you wear correctly fitting, supportive shoes. If it’s difficult for you to find shoes that support your arches sufficiently, ask us about custom orthotics. Also, always stretch before and after runs and make an effort to run on softer surfaces than concrete. Sometimes, foot mechanics may cause pain anyway – don’t hesitate to contact our podiatrist for more information or an evaluation for your foot pain!
