Foot and Ankle Pain and Bumps on the Feet

Foot and ankle pain can be caused from many different things. Some of the causes are more obvious, but sometimes foot pain is simply caused from overuse and not having the correct type of support. One common reason we see people have increased foot pain is from starting an exercise program.

Weaning into activity slowly can be helpful to decrease foot pain. A more supportive tennis shoe with a custom or over-the-counter orthotic can also help your foot function more appropriately. Patients with high arched feet, called pes cavus, typically have more problems absorbing shock well. They typically end up dealing with stress fractures and shock absorption type issues with the foot and ankle.  Patients with flatfeet will typically end up dealing with tendinitis or joint impingement issues, such as sinus tarsi syndrome, because their arch is flattening out too much.

One other common problem in the foot and ankle is a painful bump that makes shoe fitting difficult. These bumps can be forming from:

If modifying shoes to take pressure off the bumps does not relieve the pain, these are able to be treated and corrected to allow you to remain active.
