Most individuals will experience foot pain at some point in time during their lives. Foot pain is caused by a wide variety of injuries, health problems or disorders, including (but not limited to):
- Bone spurs
- Flat Feet
- Ingrown toenails
- Plantar fasciitis
- Stress fractures
- Wearing improper shoes or extensive use of the feet.
According to an American Podiatric Medical Association survey, 76 percent of Americans said they spend more than four hours each day on their feet. The same percentage said they had foot problems in the last 12 months.
