The management of foot pain is varied, since there are many conditions that can afflict your feet. If you are generally healthy, proper shoes and over-the-counter foot products are usually all you need for most foot problems. Seek professional care if the problem persists or worsens.

If you have diabetes, you need to take scrupulous care of your feet on a daily basis. Half of all lower limb amputations in the United States are done on people with diabetes. Most of them can be prevented with vigilant foot care.

Treatment may involve any of the following:

Lifestyle changes
Medications
Other treatments
Surgery
