You might not notice it, but your feet are exposed to daily stresses that will eventually cause your foot pain later on. Spending the whole day wearing high heels, doing intense exercises like running and jumping rope, and even simply wearing ill-fitting shoes are more harmful than you think.
Unbeknownst to most people, these normal daily activities deal a huge amount of pressure on your metatarsal pads, more commonly known as the ball of your foot. The unnatural position and pressure on the ball of the foot can cause several injuries.
You might feel some minor discomfort and simply shrug it off to finish your daily run or to continue wearing those lovely yet slightly uncomfortable shoes. However, these minor aches will ultimately build up into a more serious foot condition.

Minor Foot Pains Can Become Serious
Foot pains are the early signs that there is something wrong with your feet. If left untreated, it may lead to minor or even major injuries.
Some of the common foot injuries you might acquire are plantar fasciitis, Metatarsalgia, and a rupturing of the Achilles tendon. These are all caused by constant poor foot practices, either unintentional or merely overlooked.
A short overview of these injuries should help in identifying what might be causing you pain, if any, and the practices you should avoid.
The plantar fascia, the ligament that runs from your heel to the front of your foot, is a vital part of walking. It is your natural shock absorber, and it provides support to your foot arch. Plantar fasciitis occurs when this ligament receives relentless strain from excessive walking or running. It could also happen when you regularly wear shoes that offer insufficient support.
The ball of your foot, or metatarsal bones, serves in supporting your body weight. When wearing heels, instead of having your weight distributed across your feet, the entirety of your mass is all pressing at just a single point on your foot – the metatarsals. The balls of your feet were not made to withstand this unnatural burden and will most likely strain at the pressure. As a result, constant wearing of heels could lead to Metatarsalgia. Running, jumping, wearing shoes that do not fit, and being overweight can also cause this injury.
Achilles Tendon Injuries
The Achilles tendon connects the calf muscles to the back of your foot or heel bone. It assists in the flexing of the foot, a common motion used in walking or running. Therefore, any person who walks may develop an injury in this tendon. Often, repetitive stress and overuse are the culprits.
These are the 3 most common foot injuries that you might sustain in your lifetime. However, these are easily treatable and entirely avoidable.
