Pain on top of foot
Does this sound like you – “The top of my foot aches when I put weight on it. The more activity I do the worse it is. And the only shoes that are comfortable are sneakers.”
Pain over the top of the foot is very common. Common causes include arthritis, nerve irritation, incorrect footwear, muscle & tissue tightness & poor foot function.
Simple steps focus on your footwear:
1. supportive footwear will often help
2. making sure the shoe is not too tight across the top of your foot
If your pain is persisting, we will assess several areas including your gait & how you are walking & placing pressure on your foot, the strength of your foot to support your weight properly & whether your footwear is contributing to your pain. Then provide you a treatment plan that will commonly advise on exercise to strengthen your foot & ankle, footwear advice, the possible need for a flexible supportive insole & potentially other therapies.
