6 Problems Causing Pain in the Feet

The feet, which play the most important role in walking function; have a complex structure consisting of bones, joints, ligaments and soft tissues, so a big or small problem that may occur in each of these structures can cause foot pain. Orthopedics and Traumatology specialist Assoc. Prof. Dr. Onur Kocadal pointed out that many problems, from injuries or infections to structural problems, can cause foot pain.

Foot pain, which makes it difficult to walk and stand, and thus can seriously affect daily life, is actually a common problem that can be worrying. According to a study conducted by the American Podiatric Medical Association in 2014; 77 percent of people experience severe foot pain. Use of inappropriate shoes, diabetes and aging are among the risk factors for the emergence of foot problems.

Prof. Dr. Onur Kocadal underlined that not all foot pains are serious but should not be ignored.
