Biomechanics of the Feet and Foot Pain

Tuesday, 03 October 2023 00:00

Biomechanical problems of the feet can lead to various issues in the body, including foot pain. These problems often result from conditions consisting of fallen arches, overpronation, or supination. Fallen arches, known as flat feet, can occur due to excessive pronation, causing the foot to roll inward. Conversely, high arches can lead to supination, where the foot rolls outward. Both of these conditions can create imbalances in the body's mechanics, affecting the feet and other body parts, and leading to pain during activities like walking or running. Symptoms of biomechanical foot problems can include hip pain, knee pain, leg cramps, and ankle pain. Additionally, the lower back, Achilles tendon and the heel may be affected. Treatment options often include a gait analysis to understand walking patterns, orthotic devices, and shoe modifications. If you have foot pain, it is suggested that you make an appointment with a podiatrist for a thorough evaluation of your feet and ankles, and a treatment plan based on results.

Foot Pain

Foot pain can be extremely painful and debilitating. If you have a foot pain, consult with Dr. Harris L. Klear from Burlington County Podiatry Associates. Our doctor will assess your condition and provide you with quality foot and ankle treatment.


Foot pain is a very broad condition that could be caused by one or more ailments. The most common include:

  • Bunions
  • Hammertoes
  • Plantar Fasciitis
  • Bone Spurs
  • Corns
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Arthritis (such as Gout, Rheumatoid, and Osteoarthritis)
  • Flat Feet
  • Injury (from stress fractures, broken toe, foot, ankle, Achilles tendon ruptures, and sprains)
  • And more


To figure out the cause of foot pain, podiatrists utilize several different methods. This can range from simple visual inspections and sensation tests to X-rays and MRI scans. Prior medical history, family medical history, and any recent physical traumatic events will all be taken into consideration for a proper diagnosis.


Treatment depends upon the cause of the foot pain. Whether it is resting, staying off the foot, or having surgery; podiatrists have a number of treatment options available for foot pain.
