Factors That Will Increase The Chances Of Experiencing Foot Pain:
Age: as we age, our feet widen and flatten, plus the fat padding on the sole of the foot wears down. The skin on our feet also becomes dryer. Foot pain in older people may be the first sign of arthritis, diabetes, and circulatory disease.
Gender: Women are at higher risk than men for severe foot pain, most likely because of high-heeled shoes. Severe foot pain appears to be a major cause of general disability in older women.
Occupational Risk Factors: people who are on their feet all day because of work are very likely to suffer from some type of foot pain or discomfort.
Pregnancy: pregnant women have an increased risk of foot pain problems due to weight gain, swelling in their feet and ankles, and the release of certain hormones that cause ligaments to relax.
Sports and dancing: especially heel pain, shin splints, and knee pain are likely to occur with sports, running or dancing.
Weight gain: being overweight puts added stress on the feet and can lead to foot pain or ankle injuries.
Over-pronation: rolling inwards of the foot and flattening of the arches (over-pronation) is a major contributing factor to foot pain.
