Pain on the Bottom of the Feet

A person can have pain anywhere on the feet, including the soles, arches, and heels. While there are several reasons one could feel such foot pain, experts agree one should halt activity that seems to have caused it, not walk or stand for prolonged periods, and not wear high or pointy-toed shoes. On the contrary, it is agreed that someone with pain in the bottom of their feet might want to rest their feet, wear well-fitting shoes that have room for the feet to move in, and try gentle foot stretches. Shoe insoles might help with this type of pain as well. If you have pain on the bottom of your feet that interferes with normal functioning, is not getting better, or worsens, it is suggested that you see a podiatrist for an accurate diagnosis and treatment options.
