Foot pain can be present anywhere on foot, as the soles, arches, heels, or toes. Improperly fitting shoes, obesity, sprain, fracture, foot corn, callus, plantar fasciitis, arthritis, diabetic foot, etc., are some causes of foot pain.

The foot must be kept in an elevated position while resting, and painkillers help in effectively managing foot pain.
