Systemic Problems

Foot pain is often caused by systemic diseases—ailments that affect the whole body but may manifest as a foot problem or have painful symptoms in the feet or affect the health of the feet.

We often see patients with foot pain and/or impaired ability to walk comfortably, including:

  • Gout
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Neurological disorders
  • Arthritis
Feet in pain

Sometimes people are surprised that arthritis affects feet. Arthritis is either damage to or inflammation of a joint – and can affect any joint in your body. Your feet are especially prone to develop arthritis because each foot has 33 joints and they take a tremendous amount of pressure every day. Your symptoms may include aching or generalized pain in one joint or an entire area of your foot.
