Foot & Heel Pain

By The Foot Care Aide | September 11, 2009

Foot & heel pain can be caused by a number of different conditions.  But, the most common cause is wearing poor-fitting (or poorly designed) shoes.

Whether or not you spend a great deal of time on your feet, it is important that your arches are properly supported, that the shoe is wide enough and that the heels are not too high.

High-heeled pointy toed shoes cause more aches and pains than just the ones experienced in the feet.  The knees, hips and back can suffer as well.
