Sometimes the best way to find out what is causing your foot pain is to just point to the area. Look at the diagrams below and slowly move your mouse over the area of the foot where you are experiencing pain. When your mouse arrow hits the correct spot, a link will pop up that will take you to a page that discusses the most common cause of pain in that part of the foot. (note: if you are visiting this site on a mobile device, tap your finger in the area of the foot where you are experiencing pain) Just remember this list is not conclusive. Read about the condition that you have chosen. If it does not quite sound like your problem then I would suggest you use the Google Search Box at the top of this page. Type in the condition you are looking for, or type in your symptoms such as "painful heel when I wake up in the morning" or "tarsal tunnel symptoms". Chances are your symptoms or condition have been discussed on this site before.

I've been doing some aggressive research lately (it's how I found your incredible website) and realize now that my symptoms are not consistant with the diagnosis.

Thanks for a most interesting website, which has helped a lot.
I usually do my research on the Mayo clinic website. I think your website is the most informative site I have found when researching foot pain.
I thank you for putting together this incredible website.
....I have been told that it is not hard enough to be cut off. Please help, I am not sure what to do now! THANKS FOR A WONDERFUL AND VERY HELPFUL SITE!
You have an unusually clear, informative and well-written website for laypersons. Thank you for that.

First, I'd like to thank you for all the information that you provide on your website and the opportunity to write to you.
First, I want to let you know that you have the best web site I've found related to foot issues. (The only thing I had difficulty finding was the "ask a question" page.)
I received the orthotics Monday afternoon and began wearing them Tuesday. After two days I would say that I have noticed a huge improvement in the discomfort I have been experiencing. My foot feels better than it has in months.
I greatly admire someone like you who would donate and dedicate so much time and effort to helping strangers with no compensation. Truly, it is uncommonly kind. And your site is so intelligently arranged.

I used to work for a podiatrist (front desk) back during summers in
college years ago, so I know the benefits of good care. Again, I want
to thank you for an EXCELLENT website. It was so great to get to your
site (top of google search) and actually find all the answers I needed
EASILY and QUICKLY! Clearly you put a ton of work into it and I really
All the best,
By the way, millions of websites could use yours as a guideline on how to organize information and make the site user-friendly. Kudos to you!
Thank you for your very interesting and informative site!
