Global surveys show that most adults experience some type of foot pain. One such survey showed that 77% of U.S. adults over age 18 have experienced foot pain. Of those people, only a third have visited a podiatrist for help. If the pain is fleeting, it’s understandable why someone might not seek assistance. But if it’s reoccurring, it’s important to break the cycle of hurt before it develops into one of two types of foot injuries: traumatic (single-time injuries like a sprained ankle or broken bone) or microtrauma (those that occur over time usually from overuse).
