Identifying the problem is the first step to good foot health

Not all foot pain is the result of activity or injury. Some people are born with hereditary foot conditions or have genetically-determined conditions appear later in life. These problems typically afflict bones, tendons or nerves.

Pes planus

Being flat-footed means having no arch on the bottom of your foot. It can be hereditary or a side effect of disease. Not everyone experiences significant pain from this condition, but if you do, your doctor may recommend orthotics or other treatments.

Type 1 diabetes

This type of diabetes becomes active in childhood. Diabetics need to be careful with their feet. Nerve damage can make the feet less sensitive. In turn, this makes it easier to injure them and harder to notice when they’ve become injured. When left untreated, injuries can progress into full-blown disease.

But you can also be genetically predisposed to bunion development. A bunion is a swelling at the base of the big toe. The foot will visibly protrude at this point, and other toes may be pushed out of alignment as well. Bunions can be very painful and affect your ability to walk with a natural gait.

For example, hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP) is a progressive nerve disease that manifests as weakness and spasticity in the lower limbs (HSP sufferers may have pes cavus - high-arched feet - as well). Most people with high-arched feet are born with them. This condition is associated with foot ailments such as hammertoes, claw toes, tendinitis and others. Then there’s tarsal coalition, which affects 1 percent of the populace, according to eOrthopo...
