Foot Pain: Causes and Surgery
There are some foot conditions that often require surgery. Christopher Hodgkins, Orthopedic Surgeon at Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, explains they are bunions and hammertoes, which are deformities of the toes and there are others that don’t necessarily need surgery, such as plantar fasciitis and bone spurs.
To prevent problems in the future, it is recommended paying attention to every day aches, anything from wearing the wrong footwear to high-impact exercise can trigger conditions like bunions or worse. Hodgkins says it is important to check a pain out if it is consistent and persistent.
