Foot Pain Specialist

Pain is referred to the feet because they absorb the shock of the rest of your body’s over-exertion. Foot pain is a very common condition in the today’s hustling and bustling New York City life. The human foot is comprised of 26 bones and 33 joints as well as hundreds of ligaments, muscles, and nerves.

Structural Foot Pain

Many abnormalities can occur to the structure of the foot and causing significant pain.

  • Bone spurs – osteophytes – are bony projections developing along the foot bone’s edges. These spurs are often caused by an arthritic condition irritating to the foot’s nerves.
  • Achilles tendinitis is an inflammation localized just above the heel of the foot – the Achilles tendon. This condition is caused by the overutilization of the ankles and calf muscles during sports activities such as running, dancing, and playing soccer or basketball.
  • Osteoarthritis is a structural breakdown and eventual loss of cartilage in the foot’s joints. Age is the primary factor contributing to osteoarthritis.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis is a condition in which one’s immune system attacks normal joint tissues. RA results in severe pain and deformities in the feet.
  • Stress fractures are tiny breaks occurring in the bones of one’s feet due to overuse and/or improper physical activity.
