Sprains, fractures, and strains are common causes of foot and ankle pain during physical activities, sports, or accidents. Sprains result from ligament stretching or tearing when the foot rolls forcefully, fractures involve bone breaks or cracks due to excessive force or trauma, and strains occur from muscle or tendon overstretching or tearing due to sudden movements or repetitive stress.
Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis lead to foot and ankle pain due to joint cartilage inflammation and degeneration. Osteoarthritis is caused by cartilage wear-down, while rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that attacks the joints.
Plantar fasciitis is a condition characterized by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick tissue band connecting the heel bone to the toes. It commonly causes heel pain, especially in the morning or after prolonged periods of rest. Excessive strain on the plantar fascia can lead to small tears, resulting in inflammation and pain.
Tendinitis is a condition characterized by inflammation of the tendons in the foot or ankle, typically caused by overuse or repetitive stress. This overuse can strain the tendons, resulting in inflammation and subsequent pain, swelling, and difficulty with movement.
Bunions, characterized by the development of bony protrusions at the base of the big toe, lead to the shifting and deformation of the joint, resulting in pain, with discomfort exacerbated when wearing tight-fitting footwear.
