Plantar Fasciitis is the inflammation of the fascia, which are thick connective tissue attached at the front of the heel running along the arch of the foot and branching out to attach behind the ball of the foot. When there is overuse of the fascia due to impact caused by increased activity during the day such as, sports, weight gain, and walking on hard flooring, the fascia strains and becomes inflamed.
Many complications can be associated by diabetes. It disrupts the vascular system, which can create severe problems to the feet. Type I Diabetes is considered as juvenile diabetes, usually associated with heredity. Type II is commonly referred to as adult onset diabetes due to poor diet.
There are many different types of arthritis that can affect your feet. Some are localized in one or more joints and others are systemic. They are caused by heredity, overuse, injury and/or mechanical stress of a joint. Arthritis can affect the bone structure, joint deformity, the gait and overall lifestyle. This condition cannot be reversed but can be stopped or prolonged.
Metatarsalgia can be localized under the first toe. There are two small sesamoïd bones under the first joint creating pressure, which can cause the pain. But most often it is localized under the 2nd metatarsal head due to excess pressure either the 2nd toe is longer than the 1st (Morton’s Foot) and the pressure is transferred to the 2nd or hypermobility of the first ray while the 2nd stabilizes the foot.
There are many different conditions that can create knee and hip pain such as arthritis, bursitis, softening or injury of the cartilage, injury and/or strain on the collateral ligaments, baker’s cyst, patella tracking and the alignment. Osteoarthritis is wear and tear of the knee and hip joint caused by stress or injury. This creates overall pain in the knee and hip articulations.
There are many different reasons that contribute to foot pain – arthritis, diabetes, and the overall lifestyle. Most of us don’t realize the impact we cause on our feet daily. The stress caused during heavy lifting, weight gain and pregnancy also cause a lot of strain on the foot and the body. The alignment of the entire body depends on a functional foot.

Wearing the wrong shoe can cause injury and long-term damage to your body. It is crucial to retire your old shoes when they are worn out and find the proper fitting shoe for your foot.
