Why Do I Have Foot Pain After Running?

Monday, 27 April 2020 00:00

Foot pain can be a familiar ailment among people who enjoy running. There are twenty six bones in each foot, surrounded by several ligaments, tendons, and muscles. The chances of injuring the foot may increase if proper stretching exercises are not performed. There are common causes of foot pain that may come from running for prolonged periods of time. These can include plantar fasciitis, which impacts the heel and arch of the foot. Stress fractures are considered to be a hairline fracture, and can gradually develop in specific parts of the foot. Both types of injuries require time off from running, so the healing process can begin. If you have any form of foot pain, it is strongly advised that you consult with a podiatrist who can help you with proper treatment options.

Foot Pain

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with Dr. Thong V. Truong from California. Our doctor will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.

To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.
