Common Foot Conditions

Foot pain affects people of all ages and lifestyles. Among those who suffer most are individuals who spend long hours standing or walking, such as healthcare professionals, retail workers, and athletes. Older people are also more prone to developing foot conditions. Common problems leading to foot pain include various foot and nail conditions like bunions, ingrown toenails, and fungal toenail infections. Additionally, bone and joint pain, such as plantar fasciitis and arthritis, contribute significantly to discomfort. Tingling and numbness may also occur due to nerve compression or conditions like peripheral neuropathy. These issues can impair mobility and quality of life if left untreated. Proper footwear, custom-made orthotics, stretching exercises, and maintaining a healthy weight play a part in preventing and managing foot pain. If you are suffering from foot pain, it is suggested that you schedule an appointment with a podiatrist to address underlying causes, obtain treatment, and prevent complications.

Foot Pain

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with one of our podiatrists  from Bergen Foot & Ankle. Our doctors will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.


Foot pain is a very broad condition that could be caused by one or more ailments. The most common include:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Bone Spurs
  • Corns
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Arthritis (such as Gout, Rheumatoid, and Osteoarthritis)
  • Flat Feet
  • Injury (from stress fractures, broken toe, foot, ankle, Achilles tendon ruptures, and sprains)
  • And more


To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.


Treatment depends upon the cause of the foot pain. Whether it is resting, staying off the foot, or having surgery; podiatrists have a number of treatment options available for foot pain.
