The foot contains 26 bones and more than 30 joints. Many people experience pain involving one or more of these joints. The pain may be accompanied by swelling, tenderness, stiffness, redness, bruising and/or increased warmth over the affected joints.

Joint pain may be caused by trauma, infection, inflammation, arthritis, bursitis, gout, or structural foot problems. It is initially treated with rest, elevation and limitation of walking/weight bearing on the painful foot. Use of non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, and ice can help to reduce local inflammation and pain. Custom orothotic devices may also be prescribed to support the foot and reduce pain. A foot and ankle surgeon can best determine the cause of joint pain and recommend the appropriate treatment.
