Whenever we are in the standing position, whether walking, running or just standing, the entire pressure exerted by our body is borne by the soles of the feet. Our feet act as shock absorbers as well as a lever and each foot is provided with 26 bones and various ligaments attached to it. Continuous wear and tear can lead to sore soles of the feet as well as any other part of the foot. It can affect the heels, the arch or the curve in the middle of the foot or the balls of the feet. We will look at the common and not so common causes of sore soles of feet. This is the most common types of pain associated with the heels of the feet. A tissue called plantar fascia is present from the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes.
Painful, sore feet are very common. According to the National Foot Health Assessment conducted by the NPD Group for the Institute for Preventive Foot Health, 61 percent of adults in the United States ages 21 and older million people have experienced foot pain, soreness or discomfort. Soreness can affect any part of the foot, but often it can be traced to the weight-bearing areas--the forefoot ball , and the rear foot heel. These areas are protected on the plantar surface bottom of the foot by fat pads. Although these fat pads are thick and protective during infancy and childhood, by the time we reach our mid-thirties, they begin to deteriorate and lose their protective capability.Injury, overuse or conditions causing inflammation involving any of the bones, ligaments or tendons in the foot can cause foot pain. Arthritis is a common cause of foot pain. Injury to the nerves of the feet may result in intense burning pain, numbness or tingling peripheral neuropathy. Causes shown here are commonly associated with this symptom. Work with your doctor or other health care professional for an accurate diagnosis.
