Foot pains are mostly caused by tendinitis, heel spurs, neuropathy, gout, plantar fasciitis, Morton’s neuroma or fractures. It’s best to treat foot pain naturally after the problem has been diagnosed.

Tendinitis is the most often cause of foot pain. This issue occurs when there is an inflammation in the foot tendon. When a tissue is damaged, the body responds with inflammation to start healing it, but left untreated it causes massive pain and does more harm than good. Rest and sometimes orthopedic shoes are recommended, as well as a healthy diet full of omega-3 oils, turmeric and other anti-inflammatory foods which can reduce the inflammation. You should also remove trans fats from your diet.

Some of these conditions like plantar fasciitis or heel spurs are often treated with steroid injections. However, the injections have a side effect: weakened tissue. Platelet rich plasma is a better way of treatment and lasts longer than steroid injections. Acupuncture, certain exercises can improve the situation, as well as including turmeric in your diet and naturally anti-inflammatory eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid (EPA\DHA). Comfortable footwear is a must in these cases.

Neuropathy is a disease which occurs in diabetes patients. Adjusted diet and managed blood sugar levels will help, as well as not eating refined sugars or foods with high glycemic index. Your diet should be based on natural vegetables and fruits, and vitamin B12 rich foods as well. If you can’t stand the pain, get vitamin B12 in the form of injections.

Gout is a type of painful arthritis caused by excess uric acid in the joints. The acid is a result of high calories and fat diet, common among all ages today. Meat, alcohol, refined sugars and coffee should all be avoided in case of gout, and you should increase fruits such as cherries in your diet.

Morton’s neuroma is a thickening of the nerves that leads to the toes. Sharp pains and burning are common for this condition, and it is often treated with surgery. Steroid injections as well as physiotherapy and anti-inflammatory supplements will help too.

Fractures are a serious condition and can be seen on x-rays. The foot needs to be immobilized in these cases if the bone is to heal. Calcium and vitamins B and C speed up bone regeneration, but hormone levels play a role as well.

In any of these conditions, the most important thing to remember is to avoid high heels and wear comfortable footwear that will improve instead of worsen the condition.
