Top Foot Doctor NYC
Like the hand, the foot contains many joints, bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments working in concert to preserve the health of the foot and avoid foot pain. Wearing misfitted shoes restricts and contorts the normal movement of the foot. Without proper care, foot pain – and even arthritic conditions – can affect the foot itself.
Heel and Foot Pain Causes
Women who wear high-heeled shoes or excessively tight shoes are at a much greater risk for developing foot problems, as well as ankle, knee, hip, and low back problems due to the uneven weight distribution caused by heels. Problems in the foot that are not addressed also frequently lead to altering the way we walk in order to decrease pain. This can often lead to secondary problems in the knees and lower back.
