The foot is the foundation of movement in the lower portion of your body. This body part is made up of an extensive network of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones. Since the foot is so complex, it can be a significant source of joint pain. Often, pain in the foot can be caused by poor alignment or inappropriate footwear. Foot pain can be associated with some sort of trauma, such as a fracture. Individuals may also experience pain in the foot if they have a condition such as osteoarthritis or deformities like bunions. Stress injuries can also cause foot pain. If you have been suffering from any of the foot pain symptoms listed below, you may consider working with a Virgin Islands foot specialist to resolve your pain.
- Foot numbness
- Pain centered in the arch, ball, or heel of the foot
- Foot pain present in basic daily activities
- Discoloration or change of sensation in the toenail or skin of the foot
- Tenderness or swelling
- Loss of function or deformed appearance of the impacted area
