One’s foot is a vital human organ needing tender loving care as one’s very mobility or erect position for a fair amount of time depends on one’s foot care regimen.

For the uninitiated, there are 26 bones that the foot is made of forming two arches across the foot. The ankles are formed as a result of the foot and the lower leg interacting with each other. The ligaments act as an anchor for the bones of one’s foot.

 

Causes of Foot Pain or Diagnosis:

Trauma, disease and foot injuries are the probable causes of foot pain. If the biomechanical alignment is inadequate and also depending on the kind of footwear one may have put on, could be the cause of one’s foot pain or toe pain as well.

Adults have an arch between the forefoot and the heel and the cause of this formation is tendons connecting and pulling the lower legs of the feet, resulting in the arch formation. The arch develops with the person grows older and it’s not congenital. Therefore, typically children have flat feet.
