Many people take their feet for granted until simple tasks like standing or walking become excruciatingly painful and restricted. The foot is made up of 26 bones, 30 joints, and over 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These structures must work together to provide the coordination and timing required for walking, balance, and overall mobility. Pain and dysfunction result when any part of the system fails.

Typical foot pain conditions and how to find foot pain relief

You could be experiencing foot pain for a number of reasons. While some foot pain is caused by an acute injury, it can also develop gradually as a result of chronic overuse or underlying conditions. Physiotherapy, massage therapy and chiropractic therapy at MSK Health and Performance in Vancouver Kitsilano, Downtown Vancouver and Burnaby Metrotown can provide long-term relief for most foot pain without the use of medications, injections, or surgery.

The following are some of the most common causes of foot pain:

Strains and sprains

Sprains and strains are common injuries that are frequently confused with one another! Sprains occur when a ligament is stretched or torn, whereas strains occur when a muscle or tendon is injured.

These types of injuries are commonly caused by stepping incorrectly or landing incorrectly. Both of these injuries should be evaluated by a physiotherapist, registered massage therapist or chiropractor to ensure that they heal quickly and that no long-term damage occurs.


Tendinopathy refers to any problem with a tendon, including disease, injury, or disorder. Tendinitis is one such problem that occurs when the tendons become inflamed. .

Tendinopathy is frequently the result of an overuse or repetitive stress injury. While sometimes the tendons are inflamed, typically the injury is a result of gradual damage to the tendon.

Plantar fasciitis

The plantar fascia is the long tissue at the bottom of your feet that connects the heel bone to the toes. Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition that affects the bottom, inner aspect of the heel or the arch of your foot and worsens after activity or periods of non-weight bearing (i.e., the morning after sleeping, after prolonged sitting).

Although the name fasciitis implies inflammation, recent research has shown that painful plantar fascia is typically due to damaged tissue rather than inflamed tissue.


Neuropathy is a nerve disease that is commonly associated with diabetes, medication toxicity (e.g., chemotherapy), or circulation issues such as peripheral vascular disease.

This condition impairs sensation in the feet and can be especially troublesome when cuts or injuries go unnoticed. Changes in sensation can also make you more prone to balance problems and falls.

Whatever type of foot pain you are experiencing, getting help sooner rather than later will benefit you in the long run. Our physiotherapists, registered massage therapists and chiropractors at MSK Health and Performance in Vancouver Kitsilano, Downtown Vancouver and Burnaby Metrotown will work with you to reduce your pain and get you moving again!


Arthritis is a common condition that causes inflammation and foot pain in the joints. This condition can affect people of all ages, but it usually gets worse as they get older.

The most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Both types of arthritis damage the cartilage, limiting your range of motion and function over time. Both conditions can have serious consequences for the foot joints.


A fracture happens when a bone is subjected to too much force or trauma, causing it to crack or break completely. Excessive force can be caused by overuse and repetitive stresses, such as when running long distances. In the case of stress fractures, the pain may come on gradually before a complete break occurs.

To ensure proper healing, a foot fracture may necessitate weeks of rest and, in some cases, a cast or walking boot.


Bursae are closed, fluid-filled sacs that cushion and aid in creating a smooth, gliding surface between body tissues. These fluid sacs protect the tendons from the bone.

An injury or overuse can cause bursitis (inflammation of the bursae), which prevents tendons from gliding smoothly over the joint and can be painful or even debilitating. This condition frequently affects the foot, ankle and heel.

Fallen arches

The arches in your foot are formed by several tendons, ligaments and fascia working together with your bones and joints. Your foot will form a proper arch when the tendons pull together correctly, and your joints are stable.

If the tendons do not pull together properly, your foot will form a minimal arch or no arch at all. A “fallen arch” or “flat foot” occurs when the joints and muscles are unable to stabilize and support the arch. Because of the altered gait caused by this condition, this condition is frequently associated with foot pain or pain in the shin and knee regions.

Tarsal tunnel syndrome

The tarsal tunnel is the groove through which the nerve that runs from the lower leg to the foot travels. When a nerve is irritated or pinched, it causes pain and inflammation.

Sharp, shooting pains, “pins and needles,” or burning sensations in the feet can make this condition debilitating. Fortunately, physiotherapy, massage therapy and chiropractic therapy has been shown to help with both acute and chronic pain relief.
