Depends on the cause: Foot pain may be due to: trauma (fracture, sprains, arthritis), infection, metabolic conditions (gout), structural (bunion, hammertoes), or biomechanical abnormality, blood clot, or nerve damage (neuropathy). A thorough history and physical exam by a professional and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams may help to determine the right cause and appropriate treatment.
