Heel pain usually on the inside of the foot, which is normally worst first thing in the morning. After a few minutes it eases as the foot gets warmed up, but can get worse again during the day especially if walking a lot. Sometimes pain occurs on the outside of the heel, but this is often as a result of offloading the painful area on the inside.
Initially pain or stiffness is felt first thing in the morning or after activity. Swelling can be felt above the heel. Pain can be elicited by plantar-flexing the foot or standing on tip toes. This condition often occurs in either people who are increasing their level of training or those who have changed the surface on which they are training.
Pain is normally present around the outside of the ankle and can feel weak as if going to give way when walking. This can be a result of a residual instability in the ankle joint.
It can present as a burning pain under the ball of the foot, sometimes radiating to the toes and causing numbness. Pain is often worse on walking, especially in tight fitting shoes, and can be relieved by resting and removing the shoes. Squeezing the forefoot together from the sides can cause a painful click. The pain is due to a compression of the digital nerves most commonly between the 3rd and 4th metatarsals.
Treatment is more effective if started early while the symptoms are mild.
It presents as pain along the shin varying from a dull ache to a sharp stabbing pain. Initially the pain is present after an activity and progresses to pain during an activity, and then at its most severe pain occurs even on everyday activities such as walking. It is one of the most common causes of lower leg pain amongst runners.
This is the term used to describe the formation of a bony bump on the side of the big toe. As a result of this change in alignment the big toe joint does not function as effectively and can result in pain in the big toe joint or corns or callus developing under the ball of the foot. The main factors which predispose someone to the development of bunions are Heredity, Footwear, Gender and excessive pronation of the foot.
Any site that has been exposed to mechanical stress such as shear and friction is likely to become inflamed resulting in the inflammation of a bursa. There is usually visible swelling and tenderness over the affected area.

There are many possible symptoms which occur from LLD or as a result of the body trying to
compensate for the difference. Listed below are just a few
Gradual onset of pain under the big toe joint on weight-bearing, particularly when the big toe joint is flexed upwards (Dorsiflexed). The pain can start as a mild ache and gradually increase to an intense throbbing if the aggravating activity is continued. Tenderness may be localised to one or both of the sesamoids and callus may be present over the big toe joint. It is usually a result of repetitive stress and compression on the sesamoid and big toe joint, rather than an acute injury, leading to inflammation.
