Common Foot Ailments

Common Foot Ailments

When the foot hits the ground

Do you complain of foot pain? It is not surprising because your feet absorb the impact of your daily activities and wear as you age. Since most of us take five to ten thousand steps a day, the total impact quickly adds up. After age thirty, your bones and muscles in your feet may tend to weaken and  the fat pad on the bottom of the feet begin to atrophy, resulting in less cushioning around the bones of the feet.

This series, "Common Foot Ailments", reviews
our normal gait cycle while walking or running, common types of feet, and associated symptoms and treatment options of common foot pain.
