Foot pain, more common than you think
A lot of people are suffering from foot pain. Wayne Goldstein, Podiatric Physician at Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, says it is a very common case seen every time.
“When we walk just normal everyday activity you can exert up to 120 % of your body weight on your feet and when you run, it could be 3 or 5 times your body weight on your feet so that is a lot of trauma, a lot of steps every single day and the feet get wear and tear”, he says.
Some of the most common problems are anywhere from bunions and hammertoes to arthritis and plantar fasciitis.
