womens foot specialist in merrillville valparaiso inWomen are different from men, and that applies to your feet, too! If you’re like most women, you love a cute pair of shoes. Unfortunately, some styles of shoes could be causing your feet pain – along with numerous other factors.

Some of the reasons women tend to have achy feet are because of biology, but another common culprit is the type of shoes you wear.

Why You Should Choose Your Shoes Carefully

Many women’s shoes offer little to no arch support, and they don’t have a lot of space for an orthotic. This lack of support tends to place stress on the plantar fascia and the Achilles tendon, which can eventually lead to a chronic foot condition such as plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendinitis.

Because women often grow accustomed to having foot or heel pain related to shoes, they tend to wait much longer to seek help. However, if you’re experiencing heel pain or pain in your feet, it’s a good idea to be seen by our foot specialist in Merrillville, IN, sooner rather than later, because the pain could get much worse over time and the condition much more difficult to treat.

What Are Some Common Foot Problems For Women?

Though men can also suffer from some of these foot problems, women are more likely to develop them over the years. Some of the most common foot problems for women include:

You can find additional information on bunions and hammertoes right here on our website. A Morton’s neuroma is inflammation of a nerve in the ball of your foot. This can be caused by wearing shoes that are too narrow for your feet because they squeeze the foot and cause inflammation of the nerve over time.

Stress fractures can be caused simply by walking too much without proper support for your feet. Women’s shoes are often thin and don’t offer a lot of padding, and depending on how active you are every day, this can cause fracturing in your bones.

Finally, when you’re pregnant, your feet and ankles can swell and cause discomfort, but that’s not all. Another common problem during pregnancy is ingrown toenails due to your grooming habits being inhibited by a baby bump, as well as shoes that are too tight because of the swelling.
