There are many people who are under the impression that there is a normal level of discomfort that they should feel in their feet.  This is understandable...after all, you can try on other people's shoes to see how comfortable they are, but you can't try on another pair of feet.  What you were born with will stay with you for life.  As a Houston podiatrist and foot surgeon, I feel strongly that your feet should never hurt.

There are some common causes of foot pain which include:
Bunions:  A prominent bump on the side of your big toe joint
Hammertoes:  A painful buckling of your toes
Heel Pain:  Caused by an inflammation of soft tissue or a heel spur
Ingrown Toenails:  When the sides of your toenail digs into the surrounding skin
Morton's Neuroma:  An inflammation of a nerve in the ball of your foot
Stress Fractures:  A hairline fracture of the bone caused by excessive pressure

To help those in Houston suffering with foot pain, I wrote a book entitled One Step Ahead:  A Foot Owner's Manual.  I would be happy to send you a free copy of the book.  Just fill out the form on this page and my office will email you a copy immediately.  Of course, if you're currently suffering from foot or ankle pain, don't wait for the book to arrive.  Call our office to get started on your road to a life without foot pain.
