It seems like a lot to cover in a short blog post, right? The good thing is that all of these pains can be connected. Often when someone experiences heel, arch, knee, or foot pain, it is associated with complications of poor function.
Heel, arch, knee, and foot pain often results from our work because of its required routine. A non-traumatic lower extremity or back injury while on the job could result from the following:
- Long periods of standing or walking
- The walking or standing surface
- The type of job
- The type of shoes
- Being overweight
- Previous injury
- Structural abnormality of the foot or lower extremity, which you can be born with or may develop
