The main causes of chronic foot pain are either degenerative or arising from a previous injury.
Painful degenerative problems can affect the joints of the foot, or the tendons or fascia (soft tissue). Some common diagnosis will include plantar fasciitis, hallux valgus, collapsed arches in adults, osteoarthritis of the small joints or the ankle.
Injuries of the foot and ankle can arise from sports or normal daily activities. Occult fractures can occur or the soft tissues can be damaged. The soft tissues refer to ligaments and fascia which hold the bones together, or the tendons which moves the bones. They can be stretched, torn or dislocated.
