Foot nerve pain is very common condition that is experienced by most adults. About 75% of all people experience such kind of pain. This is because this part of the body supports the wait of the person. Most foot pain is caused by shoes that do not fit properly or that force the feet into unnatural shapes such as pointed-toe, high-heeled shoes. Also foot pain may be caused by many different things like trauma, disease, or a combination of both. However, most often the pain is caused by nerve damage or by an abnormality of the joints nearest the balls of the feet or the metatarsal joints. The most common is the foot nerve pain.
Foot pain is generally defined by one of three sites of origin: the toes, the front of the foot, or the forefoot and the back of the foot or hind foot. Toe problems most often occur because of the pressure imposed by ill-fitting shoes. Pain originating in the front of the foot usually involves the metatarsal bones and the sesamoid. Pain originating in the back of the foot can affect parts of the foot extending from the heel, across the sole (known as the plantar) to the ball of the foot. Most often, once these three sites of origin suffer from pain it involves foot nerve pains. Such pain is unavoidable most especially when the feet are always stressed out and not properly taking care of.
Pain, numbness and tingling located in the ball of the foot are commonly caused by inflammation of a nerve in the area. In the foot, small nerves run between the bones in the ball of the foot to supply sensation to the toes. When these nerves become enlarged due to chronic inflammation, the condition is known as Morton’s neuroma named after the clinician who originally described the problem.
