Reasons for Existing Foot Pain

The feet are often taken for granted until foot pain develops. Foot pain can happen for several reasons which may cause difficulty in completing daily activities. Each foot has 26 bones and numerous joints, tendons, ligaments, and muscles. This complex system works together to provide stability and balance, and therefore it is helpful to maintain proper foot care. Wearing shoes that fit correctly may help to prevent a multitude of foot conditions, such as hammertoes, bunions, and ingrown toenails. Athlete’s foot and toenail fungus are common conditions that can cause discomfort. These can occur when frequenting places like public swimming pools, shower rooms, or similar areas. A small tear to the plantar fascia may cause debilitating pain, and arthritic conditions like gout can cause the joints in the big toe to become inflamed. For any type of foot pain, it is suggested that you consult a podiatrist for a proper diagnosis and an effective treatment plan.

Foot Pain

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with Dr. Tupper from Coshocton Foot Health Center. Our doctor will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.


Foot pain is a very broad condition that could be caused by one or more ailments. The most common include:

  • And more


To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.
