Easy ways to take care of foot pain

Good Morning America interviews Anne Holland Johnson, MD, foot and ankle surgeon at HSS, to discuss the importance of seeing an orthopedist when faced with foot pain.

“You should not ignore foot pain. We don’t ignore pain anywhere else in the body,” said Dr. Johnson. She noted certain pain signals require attention and may mandate a visit to an orthopedist. “Very common areas of pain are along the heel. They can have tendonitis which can occur on tendons along the inside of the ankle, or the Achilles tendon which is in the back. You can also have pain in the ball of your foot," said Dr. Johnson.
