Repetitive stress from walking or running excessively or improperly is likely the cause of your foot pain. The joints, bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments in your feet absorb the shock of the rest of your body’s over-exertion or malfunction. In other words, your body refers pain to the feet. Improper footwear is another primary cause of foot pain. Misfit shoes restrict and/or redirect the normal movement of joints in your feet, leading to foot pain and even arthritis.

Experiencing Foot Pain

Misfit shoes alter one’s natural walking stride and places an active person at a much greater risk for developing foot pain. Improper or restrictive movement of the feet will also adversely affect one’s ankles, knees, hips, and cause lower back pain. This is because misfit shoes and improper stride will distribute a person’s weight unevenly throughout the body.

Plantar Fasciitis and Foot Pain

Pain to the heel of your foot is a form of tendonitis known as plantar fasciitis . A band of fibrous tissue – from the heel bone to the toes – extends along the bottom of your foot. If this tissue becomes inflamed due to over exertion – power walking or excessive running – it will become inflamed. This inflammation causes plantar fasciitis.
