Some examples of foot injuries include:
 
  • Achilles Bursitis: Pain at the back of the heels especially when running uphill or on soft surfaces.
     
  • Blisters: Redness over the skin, often at the back of the heel, the instep or toes.
     
  • Bruised Heel: Repeated pounding of the heel can cause the fat pad to be pushed up the side of the heel leaving less of a protective layer causing heel pain.
     
  • Bunions: The ball of the big toe, and the surrounding area may be painful.
     
  • Calcaneal Stress Fracture: Heel pain sets in slowly and gradually.
     
  • Extensor Tendons: Pain on the top of the foot (dorsal foot pain).
     
  • Flexor Tendons: The course of the tendons becomes tender down the inside of the ankle and the sole of the foot.
     
  • Metatarsal Fractures: A gradual onset of pain in the foot.
     
  • Plantar Fascia Strain: The local area over the plantar fascia (just in front of the heel on the bottom of the foot) will be painful and tender.
     
  • Plantar Fasciitis: Pain under the heel and usually on the inside, at the origin of the attachment of the fascia.
     
  • Stress Fracture: During activity pain in the forefoot gets worse.
     
  • Tarsal Tunnel: Pain radiating into the arch of the foot, heel and sometimes the toes. This is from a pinched nerve in the ankle.
     
  • Tibialis Posterior Tendonitis: Pain and swelling around the medial malleolus (bony bit on the inside of the ankle).
